I stopped by DePauw University today to look at the newly amended brickdust infield and the new overseeded bermuda grass practice field.
The infield mix had one truckload of FS50 blecavated into the existing brick dust, laser graded and conditioned with 3 tons of Diamond Pro Pro. To learn more about amending a brick dust infield, click HERE.
The Patriot bermuda grass practice field at DePauw is doing well. The field was overseeded last week with ryegrass at 20 lbs/1000 sq ft. Here are a few photos:
Field hockey and football practices have taken place on this new field. All field hockey games will take place on this surface in 2011.

The field has had in excess of 75 events since Aug 10.
I will keep an eye on the field as we proceed further into fall.
