Tips for Creating the Perfect Football Field
All sod is not created equal. Different grasses thrive at different temperatures, in different climates and under different conditions. When choosing a type of grass for a football field, there are several things to consider.
Suitability for Your Growing Region
Consult with a local supplier of sod and grass seed, because the staff there will be familiar with your local conditions and which grasses grow best in your climate. You may need to talk with someone who will be able to guide your decision-making process based on a micro-climate within your larger growing region.
Ideal Mowing Heights
Certain grasses will not thrive when mowed too frequently, whereas others require frequent mowing to keep them at their healthiest. Depending on how often your field will be irrigated, used and mowed, you may have to consider various species of grass.
Ability to Repair Itself
Grass used on a football field must be resistant to injury from frequent use. Although football season is relatively short, wear and tear on the grass is heavy all season long. You need to choose a grass species that not only thrives during the cool football season but that also repairs itself well.
