There is a little bit of everything in it. I was not around when they put it in 16-17 years ago but it looks to me like it started off as tall fescue. It is very wide/coarse. It's around 40% that. Lots of poa and a little bent invading. Blue and rye too.

Anything I do to it now goes back in LESCO's premium athletic mix blue and rye. I would like to turn the whole stand to that mix. However, in addition to the cost being an obstacle, the timing constraints present a risk I am unwilling to take, especially considering they are pretty happy with it as is. The only time it could be done would be after June 1 and grown in completely by August 15. So that rules out complete renovation in my book but I think we are going to begin regularly overseeding with an Aeravator.
