We are installing a new "general purpose" field. It will be used to practice on by lacrosse and soccer (3 teams total), as well as intramurals and pick up games. This is a college in CT. It will be native soil, crown drainage only, irrigated by a water cannon. The architect specs call for a 40/35/25 kbg/red fescue/perennial rye mix. I cannot figure out the red fescue part. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I can't see using this type of grass in an athletic field application. I was thinking of a 80/20 kbg/rye mix or a 80/10/10 dwarf turf type tall fescue/rye/kbg mix. I was also hoping to have it slice seeded, then hydro-mulched with some Drive 75 added to the mulch mix for weed control. Anybody have any thoughts??
