The maintenance of sports turf can be a tedious, detail-oriented job, but it doesn’t have to be an impossible one. It is important to give the proper care to these fields to keep them as safe as possible for athletes of all ages. As a sports turf provider, you want that grass to be durable, healthy, and up to its optimum conditions to withstand the inevitable abuse suffered during use.
For the most part, turf is generally under stressful conditions as it gets torn out of the ground, leaving very little chance of regrowth. Depressions and unlevel areas in the field can cause water to drain unevenly, causing patches of dried grass throughout which, in turn, gives way to disease and insects to settle in the leaves and roots.
Pest infestation is a problem with most lawns, but a proactive turf management can help battle this issue by not over or under-watering the field, and using insecticides when needed. Regular aeration helps grasses to keep oxygenated and healthy. You can prevent the use of pesticides by keeping a close eye on the health of your lawn.

There is an enormous amount of scales and mites species in Middle Tennessee, which makes it a bit too long to list them all. Instead, we want to focus on how to prevent and manage them to avoid an outbreak so your trees and shrubs can grow healthy and have your property looking beautiful.
Maintaining your yard clean and trimmed is the perfect way to not allow pests from inhabiting trees and shrubs.
Take a walk around your property and do a detailed inspection of the trees and shrubs to determine if there is a pest problem. The “walk around” is a great way to identify if your plants are suffering from a disease caused by scales or mites.
It is easy to leave depression areas around trees and shrubs unattended, allowing for leaves and water to collect in a pool. This common mistake gives room for larvae, pathogens, and bacteria to grow in, which in turn, is where scales and mites come to feed and reproduce. To prevent an infestation, make sure this build-up of leaves and water does not happen.
A powerful way to alleviate a scales and mite infestation in your landscaping is by using pesticides and chemicals that prevent their reproduction. SecureLawn is Middle Tennessee’s leading expert in preventing and removal of pest infestations.
