Dan Ryan is the visionary who developed Turffalo. In the late 1980's, Dan recognized the importance of water conservation. One of his favorite quotes was: "one day water will be as valuable as oil." Knowing how much water is consumed by lawns, he worked to develop a turfgrass that was both beautiful and water wise. He selected several germplasms of native grasses that held promise, and over the course of fifteen years the final result was Tech Turf. Dan Ryan passed away on September 23, 2006. But before he left, he was able to see his wonderful grass being planted in lawns across the Southwest. He would be proud of the progress Turffalo has made!
