    They said going in that with this type of grass the shade and shadows would be an issue and that they would need to use the artificial lights to supplement the sunlight. Using the lights is not unexpected or due to a new problem they didn't anticipate.

    Well, that's not very encouraging.
    Hopefully it's just a "best practices" sort of thing and not some unexpected issue with the grass not growing as planned.
    Ross definitely wants/needs the stadium to be in tip top condition for the first home game!

    It also had no time to real grab root. Having put down sod in my yard several times sometimes the grass looks like solidly attached but with a little pull you can lift the whole thing out. I think the average for shallow root is like 2 weeks and for deep root somewhere like 4-8 weeks (depending on what grass).

    Not entirely true. The lights are there for an assistance but the grass is still supposed to thrive in the shade conditions.

    Hopefully that side of the stadium will be redone at some point. I always hated that bubble and the multicolored windows.

    It definitely had a different feel to it, at least first time walking inside for me at least, glad you will get to see it in a few days.

    Thrive? No. Tolerate? Yes. If that were the old bermuda grass, UM would be playing on dirt. See below. Grasses always prefer direct sun, but it's something that this Platinum stuff can take all that abuse in the shade and not just die out.

    Of all the things on this team, I'm least concerned with the landscaping crew. :lol:

    More "Bah, humbug" from our resident gloom-merchant.

    Having taken the time to visit the website showing the various Works, it looks amazing. So many stadia, (none more so than the Aviva Stadium In Dublin, Ireland) are built with all the focus on the skin and the field area, with no thought or Budget on the common spaces, which are generally drab concrete hangars.

    Nice to see the owner has different ideas about the fan experience and is supporting artists. Fair play to him.
