Sports Field Natural Turf Consulation
Our Sports Fields/Parks Services always includes a site visit and assessment of the current soil and lawn conditions. pH testing is of utmost importance during this first evaluation. I would then recommend a feasible course of action, specifying materials appropriate to the site and provide suggested solutions to the client. Suggestions include turf renovation, which include aerating, soil building through topdressing with compost for an increased root zone and infiltration rates, evaluating the lawn area for appropriate drainage, best management practices for correct application of materials and knowledge of appropriate maintenance practices. Appropriate maintenance practices include proper mowing heights and practices such as mulch mowing, aeration, irrigation scheduling, fertilizing and liming to maintain overall health to minimize pre and post-emergent pesticide use.
Let’s face it, natural turf sports fields take abuse from an abundance of annual use and at times minimal at best maintenance budget. The number one item on your list should be your annual natural turf renovation budget. Other considerations include annual use scheduling and field use rotation as well as recovery considerations.
