St. Luke Catholic Church - Bermudagrass - April 2013

The football/soccer field at St. Luke was converted to bermudgrass in May 2012.  In early Sept 2012, the field was overseeded with Barenbrug Turf Star Elite Rye at a rate of 20 lbs/1,000 sq ft.  The field is maintained at a 3/4 inch cutting height.   Here are a couple of photos of the field for spring soccer season 

Early April:

Mid April: (Notice the green tissue on the stolon)

The field is in great shape and completely smooth.  As stated earlier, if considering a bermudagrass conversion, keep in mind that an educational process will have to take place with the user groups and the stakeholders.  The goal with a bermuda field is fast and smooth play year around that takes wear extremely well at the start of fall sports.

Look for additional posts from St. Luke in 2013.
