LAWN BOWLING TURFGRASSES

 

WARM SEASON

Bermudagrass is the DOMINATE choice for Lawn Bowling due to Bermuda's excellent turf quality and the ability to be mowed low for faster Ball usage speeds. The hybrid Bermudas such as Tifdwarf and Tiffine found on modern golf greens are preferred varieties.  They require basically daily mowing and maintenance to keep the grass at a usable height.  Newer seeded varieties such as Princess 77 and Yukon can be used, but the maintenance level and quality of play will NOT be as good as the hybrids.

TRANSITIONAL

Bermudagrasses are impacted by their off color during winter dormancy and the higher risk of plant loss due to winter kill from low temperatures.  Bermudagrass fields must also be overseeded each fall with Ryegrasses (during a break in schedule) to avoid playing on dormant / brown fields in the fall.  Additional re-seeding of ryegrass as the season progresses is usually required. 

Zoysias grasses are used also for Lawn Bowling in the transition zone areas.  Fine vegetative varieties ( lawnplugs.com ) such as Meyer and Emerald are recommended.  Newer seeded varieties ( Zenith / Companion) are similar to Meyers in quality.

Creeping Bentgrasses are occasionally used.

COOL SEASON

Here in this area Kentucky Bluegrass is the DOMINATE choice.  Its aggressive growth and recuperative abilities (rhizomes) make it the # 1 choice.  It is also considered a safer playing surface because of the cushioning effects of its thatch layer.  Bluegrass is though slow  to fully establish, taking generally 1 year to mature.  You can generally seed in spring with use beginning in the fall.   Perennial Ryegrass is often added to mixtures of Bluegrass for field use, especially for fast repair jobs.
