The Athletic Turf Mix is specially blended for parks, golf courses, baseball diamonds, and all other turf sports fields. It’s adapted for most climates in the United States and is more water efficient than a Kentucky Bluegrass-based turf mix. This mix contains a blend of 70% Blackhawk Perennial Ryegrass, 20% Turf Type Tall Fescue, and 10% Wildhorse Kentucky Bluegrass.

We recommend this turf mix for heavy-traffic areas and sports fields, although it will work for yard applications as well. If you are looking for turf mix suited for lawns, see our Lawn & Turf Mix.

The water requirements for the Athletic Turf Mix will vary depending on your location. It grows very well under irrigation in the southwest desert, intermountain west Great Basin. Additionally, it will grow well in more humid/wet parts of the USA with little supplemental water.

We recommend for this seed to be applied at a rate of 5 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. or 250 pounds per acre. After planting, the seed bed should be kept wet at all times during germination and establishment and not allowed to dry out.

  • 70% Blackhawk Perennial Ryegrass
