For those of you all who have asked questions, I am not sure of the kind of bluegrass that was originally on the field when I got here. however, we are using Hogan seed's "Hogan's Alley KY Bluegrass Blend" the exact % of which I will check on before I post.

The soil makeup is a variety of sand and loam, but it's fairly inconsistent, being a lot more clay based down the left field line, and much more sand-heavy down in right field. When the field was built, some of the native soil was mixed with the trucked-in composition. What I've found is soil samples vary in location and it's been a hard thing to evenly fertilize because part of the field reacts differently than others.

The infield is a clay based surface. I mixed in 22 tons of calcined clay last winter and it has become a bit too soupy since. I plan on adding 25-50 tons of alabama red clay within the year. The conditioner is Mule Mix, colored Red.

here are a couple more pics!

I'll be happy to answer any more specific questions.

Last spring in the snow!
