Here is a link for the farm that grows the sod for the Yankees. Delea.

Note that it is grown in sandy soil and the soil is fumigated before planting to kill weed seeds. (This eliminates Poa annua, I suppose).

Not sure if it is the world's best--however I suspect anything else is not as good.

I laid about 2300 sq foot of this KGB from DeLea on 7/6, mowed it at 3.5" for the first time on 7/31. Looks awesome, striped great, no seams at all. Customer was very good about watering. If there is such a thing as a perfect lawn, this sod job is it. Absolute perfection, with the exception of a little patch of nut sedge in the backyard which I sprayed on Saturday.

The lawn jumps out at you from half way down the block. Beautiful rich green carpet. The only thing I didn't like was that it was rolled. That makes for a lot of extra work making tight seams. Much easier to lay peices that get palletized in flat peices.
