Lacrosse, also known as “lax” to the diehards who play it, is gaining popularity across the United States. While the sport originated hundreds of years ago, its reputation as the fastest growing sport in America has appeared on newspaper headlines in just the last couple of years.
If you are one of the many high schools or colleges looking to increase your lacrosse team’s presence on the field, Ewing has the supplies you need.
Keep it Green
“You want to make the grass in that area stronger with a healthy root system to withstand the traffic of the lacrosse goal area,” said Mike Estlinbaum, National Sports Turf Specialist for Ewing.
Lucky for field managers, soccer goals are placed in different spots from lacrosse goals (these sports often share one field). This means you can aerate and put down a product that will encourage the ground to hold moisture and grow the turf’s root system without disrupting the other sport’s goal area. Estlinbaum recommends AquaSmart PRO or Profile Field and Fairway for moisture retention and growing improved root systems.
How does your field’s layout look? “Ewing has the lacrosse layout equipment, and custom and ribbon stencils needed to paint the field,” Estlinbaum said. “We also have World Class Paint concentrate as well as a ready-to-use variety in five gallon buckets to help you accomplish your painting needs,” he said.
The Ewing Advantage
“The big advantage of going with Ewing is that you can get your lacrosse net and game specific needs, but you can also get paint, irrigation heads and more. We have everything that your field needs—not just the net,” Estlinbaum said.

“Using Ewing products year round and having a solid turf maintenance program is important not only for lacrosse, but all sports played on that particular field,” Estlinbaum said.
