Cownie Soccer Complex

Cownie Soccer Complex, Des Moines, IA

In 2009, the city of Des Moines decided it was time to renovate the James Cownie Soccer Complex, part time home to the Iowa Women's High School State Soccer tournament, due to flooding and levee breeching that had destroyed the existing fields. The Iowa Cubs Sports Turf Management team oversaw the project and Smith Seeding and Elder Corporation did the dirt work, hiring Storm Water Supply to do the turf installation. The project was extensive and called for about 40 acres of sod to be installed on twelve soccer fields. The results were beautiful.

Did You Know?

We waited until September of 2013 to seed down our new 14,000SF facility in Davenport. We wanted a 100% kentucky bluegrass lawn, so we drill seeded our Gold-Tag Certified “True Blue” seed blend. It is a 4-way mix of four of the best kentucky bluegrass cultivars currently being grown. Each cultivar was chosen for specific reasons, including: density, drought resistance, spring green-up, and resistance to leaf-spot. We decided to do a “test plot” with the mulching. We used no mulch cover on the main part of the yard and then we hydro-mulched the ditches with our EnviroMatrix mulch, which is a Fiber Reinforced Matrix. As you can see in the pictures, the EnviroMatrix did just as expected, it stopped the ditch from eroding (we had a .8” rain the day after it was applied!), and it increased seed germination by a large percent.
