Welcome to yarddoctor's Member Page
Trey Rogers, Ph.D., is one of America’s top lawn care experts. Show him a patch of yellow grass and he’s on his knees making a diagnosis. From crab grass to creeping charlie, mole tunnels to proper fertilizing, the Yard Doctor has the answers to put your lawn back in the green.
Dr. Rogers’ professional title is Professor of Turfgrass Science at Michigan State University (East Lansing, Mich.). For the past six years, as Briggs & Stratton Corporation’s Yard Doctor, he has helped homeowners across the country achieve beautiful lawns through personal visits, professional appearances and by responding to hundreds of questions via his web site at www.yarddoctor.com.
He also has been a guest on dozens of radio and television programs nationwide and was featured last year in USA Today.
When he is not helping average homeowners whip their yards into shape, he is working with golf course and baseball field groundskeepers and even offering some “green guidance” to the Olympic Games on how to improve playing fields. He was a turf grass consultant to the Olympic Games held in Athens, and will again help with turf grass management at the next summer Olympics in Beijing. Dr. Rogers earned the nicknames "Sultan of Sod" and "God of Grass" when he led a research team that helped perfect indoor grass growth for the 1994 World Cup soccer competition at the Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan.
Dr. Rogers first brushed up against his future career as a teenager – his parents made him mow the lawn. It was while working as a golf course groundskeeper in his hometown of Fort Smith, Ark. that he became fascinated with turfgrass science. He went on to earn his doctorate in agronomy from Penn State University in 1988.
As the Yard Doctor, Dr. Rogers is able to share his expertise with homeowners from Grass Valley, California to Plant City, Florida and everywhere in between. He says nothing brings him more satisfaction than the sight of a healthy, well-groomed lawn.
