SELECTION OF VARIETIES
SPORTS FIELDS - SEEDED GRASS VARIETIES

As to seeding, sprigging or sodding.  Much of the answer to this question is based on economics.  Seeding is often cheaper than both other methods.  Sodding is MOST expensive but you do have an almost INSTANT, weed free, turf surface ready for play -- Seeding will generally take anywhere from 2 months to 1-2 years depending on planting time, species, weather, soils, management, location and other factors.  Sprigging is a choice between methods with establish time often about the same as seeding.  Hydroseeding is a relatively new method that does offer some benefits.  It generally is more expensive than seeding because of the equipment and materials used (mulch / etc).

COOL SEASON ZONES

Most Sports mixtures are a mix of these such as the premium Mid America Classic Blend, the Seedland Elite Mixture or the more economical Bluemix.  Pure Bluegrass and Ryegrass varieties are also used in single "mono" stands - Midnight is one of the top varieties.  Newer varieties such as Blue Ridge, Best of Blues or Galaxy Bluegrass Blends are also popular.   Creeping Bentgrasses are used for tennis courts, lawn bowling, golf greens, and croquet.

TRANSITION ZONES

In the transition zone Tall Fescues are dominate species used.  Some Bluegrass is usually included in a mix to provide a repair ability.  Tall Fescue mixtures and Single species are also used extensively.  The Rebel Tall Fescue Blends and the Summer Lawn Plus Blend are great for use on sports fields.  Cold tolerant Bermuda grasses (Yukon, Mohawk, USALawns) are also used in this area with overseeding of these grasses once established with Perennial Ryegrass.

WARM SEASON ZONES

Seeded Varieties: Princess 77 and Yukon are two of the newest "high-quality" seeded Bermudas.  -- One of the most popular of the seeded Bermuda Blends is the Triangle Blend.  Pennington's Triangle Blend is a blend of three improved fairway quality turf types and is probably planted on more acreage than any other sports fields in the south (other than common and Sahara).  For more economical plantings, where cost is the primary factor... Sahara improved common bermuda is the leading choice.  Sahara is often available at close to the same price as common bermuda, thus is a good choice in a low-imput seeded Bermuda.  Other excellent choices for seeded Bermudas for use in recreation / high school athletic fields are La Prima, Royal Blend, SR-9554 and Yuma.
