Sports field aeration 

Whether you are competing for the Little League World Series or the high school rivalry game, the “look” of your sports field is more important than ever. Sports field aeration is a major contributor to a beautiful field of play.

While winning the game will always be the icing on the cake, there are so many other “boxes” to “check” when competing.  Consider these major factors that appeal to players, alumni, coaches, fans, parents and even recruits!

Sports field management is a key element in all outdoor arenas. While some may roll their eyes over the “importance” of these elements, can you think of the schools that don’t “check” these boxes?

Schools want to look good in, around, and on the field.  One of the most important elements on a playing field is the quality of the turf. In order to look good, the turf needs to “be good.”

We aren’t “back in the day” anymore…

In the past, management of many school sports fields has been the responsibility of coaches and a few maintenance guys. In our rural area of the South, it isn’t uncommon to see high school principals mow the football field in August. 

Parents, booster clubs, even players have put in hours keeping the field cut. Today, the health and beauty of the sports field has reached new levels of expectations. 

Sports field management means more than just mowing.The field of play should be healthy, thriving and safe! 

A safe field:

Is not too wet 

Is not too dry 

Has the correct density so as not to cause injuries to players 

A lush and thriving field can be used quickly after rain. No coach or team desires to forfeit or reschedule games because of a waterlogged field! 

Aeration, Verticut and Topdressing

The three key elements to reviving or building a safe and healthy field of play include:

Aeration

Aeration perforates the soil to allow water, air and nutrients in.

Verticutting 

Verticutting allows turf to breathe easy, absorb nutrients and soak in moisture.

Top dressing 

Top dressing applies sand or a soil mixture after 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!

Some schools were lucky enough to have parents, booster clubs, even players to put in hours keeping the field cut and green.
