Signs Your Athletic Field Needs Maintenance

Your sports field is likely well-used, which means the turf can easily become damaged. If you notice any of the following signs, it may be time to call a professional for athletic field maintenance services. There are a few signs to look out for to determine if your field needs maintenance. 

This includes:

  • Uneven playing surface: If you notice an uneven playing surface, it may be time to perform some maintenance. This is especially true if the field has begun to form ridges lips or divots. Laser grading, top dressing, rolling, and aerification can help even out the turf and improve overall performance.
  • Unmarked fields: Keeping your fields properly marked is important for a safe game environment. If lines have been faded, it’s important to repaint them. This is also true for baseball and softball infields that become overgrown or have changed shape over time.
  • Excessive weeds: Weeds can quickly overtake a playing field if not properly managed. Weed control programs should be implemented to keep the area safe and playable.
  • Poor drainage: Poor drainage can lead to a muddy and uneven playing surface. It’s important to inspect the field for any drainage issues and make sure the surface drains properly.
  • Clogged pores: Over time, the pores of the grass can become clogged with dirt and debris. This can lead to a poor playing surface, so it’s important to aerate your field to keep it healthy and playable.
  • Compacted soil: Over use, playing in wet conditions and in proper field maintenance all leads to compacted soil conditions. These conditions will dramatically alter the health and infiltration capacity of the turf grass plant community. So it’s important to aerate your field to keep it healthy and playable.
