SPORTS FIELDS
Establishment & Maintenance
Growing grasses for sports use require an extensive knowledge of Turfgrasses along with an understanding of the usage of high maintenance turf practices to provide a playing surface for your sport.  Grasses on sports fields must take moderate to severe abuse and then come back for more. Finding the right grass or mixture of grasses, and then providing the right on time maintenance program is the key to success.

Helping make sports fun - All with sports turf seeds from Seedland... You will find our seeds are quality produced and tested to provide the best playing surface possible for your particular sport. Baseball anyone?

Sports & Athletic field grasses must have dense, thick sod, be able to withstand impact and have the ability to repair quickly. These grasses are maintained at the highest level to keep the productivity at its best. Fertilization, watering and mowing are performed on a scheduled basis. Many of the athletics grasses are seeded mixtures to get the most coverage and for the longest period of time. Each seed mixture is used for the desired traits that are dominant to its variety and whether it grows well with the companion species.

Sportsgrass.com - Cool Season grasses

Tall Fescue has been developed over the years and is one of the primary athletic coverage available in the northern and transitional areas. It is a cool season, perennial, bunching grass, quick to germinate and forms a dense, thick sod, which can remain green year round in some areas. It is a non-thatching grass and can stand heavy traffic. Newer dwarf varieties have been developed to be mown closer with the addition of better disease and insect resistance. Tall fescue is reseeded yearly to keep the sod as thick as possible.

Kentucky Bluegrass: Premier Playing surface! Being quick to germinate and establish is one its advantages. Mixes of Kentucky Bluegrass and Tall Fescue are used in many situations. Sports fields that are planted in tall fescue are baseball, football, soccer, softball, volleyball, tennis, badminton, polo, and any recreational area. Tall fescue is drought tolerant and generally uses less fertilizer and does not have to be mown as low as many other sports grasses. Pure stands are preferred but in mixes it must be the dominant grass with at least 70% fescue. Bluegrass and creeping red fescue are the two lesser components in a mixture with fescue.

Perennial Ryegrass has been improved over the years and these varieties produce a better range of color, texture and resistance to diseases and pests. It is a bunch grass of upright growth and used in the cool and transitional areas for athletic fields such as softball, tennis, baseball, football, soccer, volleyball, tennis, badminton, polo, and any recreational area requiring a thick, dense, quick growing sod. It is fast to germinate repairs quickly, and can be mown at 1½ - 2 ½ inches, which is shorter than most tall fescues. Ryegrass is a medium to high maintenance grass depending upon the amount of wear. It needs more watering than tall fescue. Perennial ryegrass seed is a large component of grasses used to overseed permanent stands that go into dormancy and the perennial rye will provide early spring greenery until the permanent grass returns.

Soccer!!!!!!!! Kentucky Bluegrass is the best quality cool season grass that is grown the farthermost north and extends into the temperate areas. It is quick germinating, slower to establish, has a creeping growth, and establishes thick carpet quality, with color ranging from emerald green to dark blue depending upon the variety. It has a very fine texture and is low growing in many varieties.

Bluegrass produces the best looking athletic fields of cool season grasses and has the finest texture of those most used. The maintenance requirements for bluegrasses are more intensive than some of the other cool season grasses. Bluegrass requires more water and fertilization to keep growing at peak performance.

It is used on baseball, football, soccer, volleyball, softball, tennis, badminton, baseball, football, volleyball, tennis, badminton, polo, lawn bowing greens, croquet and any recreational area. Because of its slower growing rate it is seeded with other grasses that produce faster green - up time while the Bluegrass is establishing.

Creeping Bent grasses are finest of the cool season grasses in texture, low growth and density. It can be mown less than 1inch down to ¼ of an inch. Bentgrasses require more maintenance than the other athletic field grass and with the newer grass varieties bents are much more costly to maintain. The best use of this grass is on tennis courts and bowling greens and lawns type activities.

Sportsgrass.com - Warm Season grasses

Bermuda grass is probably the best all around athletic grass grown in the south and up into the transitional areas where it is overseeded in the fall with other grasses such as perennial rye for early spring greening. Bermudagrass has a medium to fine texture, forms a dense sod, fast growing, fast repairing, with medium to dark green color and can be mown low to the ground. The many different varieties make it possible to grow Bermuda for any athletic field. It is used on baseball, football, softball, volleyball, tennis, badminton, soccer, polo, lawn bowling greens, croquet and any recreational site. Fertilization, watering, and mowing maintenance depend upon the intensity of usage and the amount of repair growth that is needed.

Bahiagrass is used on many local "play" fields that are also used for football, softball and general recreational sports.  It's ability to withstand and recover from foot traffic combined with Bahiagrasses low maintenance requirements make it a good selection for budget limited sports organizations.
