Any managed turf area requires a lot of care and maintenance to preserve its appearance, but sports turf presents another layer of challenges with high-wear and heavy traffic. At the collegiate or professional level, sports turf is even tested and measured for performance, and expectations are high from coaches and players.
Proper maintenance and cultural practices are essential to maintaining the quality of sports fields, but starting with the right turfgrass variety is the first, most important step. In the transition zone, bermudagrasses exhibit the qualities that make great sports turf because of their capacity for rapid self-repair. However, if the field is heavily shaded, zoysiagrass might be a better choice.
Always make sure to start at the beginning by choosing the right variety and cultivar for your sports turf fields. We have a wide selection of bermuda- and zoysiagrasses to help you create a beautiful, resilient field.
