Zoysia, bermuda grasses and tall fescue were the most wear resistant turfgrass varieties. Sunturf and U-3 were the most resistant bermudagrass varieties. Grasses were less resistant to wear from spiked rollers than from scuffing feet. Stoloniferous warm-season grasses recovered more rapidly than cool-season grasses. Recovery of bermudagrasses was slower from injury from spiked wear elements than from scuffing feet.
