Grasses to plant in high traffic/ riding area.
I know it's early to be talking grass, but I need to have a game plan in advance so I can be ready when the weather is right.
My barn is in the process of going up, and there was a considerable amount of clearing work that had to be done to get to the spot where the barn is. So now I have bare land on about 1/4 an acre around the barn. What would be the most adventagous seeds to put down that will hold up well to hoof traffic (horses will be led to and from pasture every day) and light vehicular traffic (farrier/ vet/ hay). On the days that I'm pressed for time, it would also be nice to have solid enough footing that I could do a few laps around the barn. Also, what prework do I need to do to minimize the divots/ tire ruts?
I'm in west Tennessee.
