See what you can find from Jeffrey L. Bruce. He’s a landscape architect based in Kansas City, Missouri. Turf management and soil engineering is a specialty of his. I believe he’s been featured in past issues of LAM. In fact, here is a list of publications on his company’s website: http://www.jlbruce.com/a_firm/publications/publications.htm
I would go look at Penn State University Turf Grass website, Dr Andrew McNit has lots of testing, soils, turf species, drainage, natural and synthetic turf for the pitch. there are lots of resources available via their site. You can cal also look at the sports turf managers association.
