Sports Field Aeration
Sports field aeration is one of the key elements in having the best looking field of play. Winning the game is the icing on the cake, but in our world today, there are so many other “boxes” to “check”. Stadiums, uniforms, sound systems, media guides and hype videos are all important! Our schools want to look good in, around, and on the field. So obviously, the field itself needs to look good!
The old crew has more work to do…
In the past, management of school sports fields were typically the responsibility of coaches and a few maintenance guys. Some schools were lucky enough to have parents, booster clubs, even players to put in hours keeping the field cut and green. Today, the health and beauty of the sports field has reached a new level of expectations.
A sports field requires more than just good looks
The field of play should be healthy, thriving and safe! A safe field is not too wet, not too dry, it has the correct density so as not to cause injuries to players. A lush and thriving field can be used quickly after rain. No one has time to forfeit or reschedule games because of a waterlogged field! This is where sports field aeration, verticut and topdress come into play.
Aeration, Verticut and Topdress
The three key “ingredients” to reviving or building a safe and healthy field of play include:
Aeration perforates the soil to allow water, air and nutrients in.
Verticutting allows your turf to breathe easy, absorb nutrients and soak in moisture.
Top dressing applies sand or a soil mixture after aeration.
