Maintaining Your Sports Turf Never Has to Be an Impossible Task

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.

How to Make Your Field Look Its Best

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.

Areas to Look into for Better Sports Turf:

  • Healthy soil is essential for grass to grow naturally. It is recommended to use organic matter when possible to help grass regrow; roots will grow deeper, healthier, and they will have the chance to come back when torn during a game.
  • Irrigation is critical for the maintenance of any grass and sports turf. When too much water is used, it can lead to fungus and many other kinds of unhealthy pathogens, causing the lawn to die and not regrow.
  • There are many types of hearty grasses suitable for sports fields. Bermuda grass works great since it is best in hot climates during warm months and for cooler months, a mixture of ryegrasses is recommended.

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.Secure Lawn Logo

Improving the Conditions of the Trees and Shrubs On Your Property

Any time of the year is a good opportunity to care for the trees and shrubs on your property. It is important to understand that the cycle of plant growth and development throughout the year is one we can affect positively or negatively. We can easily neglect the needs of these plants as they serve to mark property lines or give us shade throughout the years.

Proper Tree and Shrub Maintenance

To properly maintain trees and shrubs, one must identify if there are problems of insect infestation, weakness in the roots, fungi, or any other type of disease. At SecureLawn, we offer a year-round maintenance program which includes Dormant Oil treatment, Root Fertilization, Insect Control, and an optional Insecticide Drench treatment to prevent health issues of your trees and shrubs.

  • Dormant Oil is applied on the plants between December and March. This time-sensitive treatment is used in the early part of the season before lead buds begin to bloom. Dormant oil is used to prevent aphids, scale, beetles, and other defoliators from attacking the plants.
  • Root Fertilization gives the plant the strength to recover from the winter stress as it helps throughout the growing season. This spring application contains various types of fertilizers and micronutrients customized to provide your plant an adequate food reserve, vitality, and health.
  • Insect Control is designed to get rid of plant-damaging insects. Treatments are applied between March and May for spring and June through August during the summer to help reduce stress and damage caused by pests such as mites, Japanese beetles, aphids, etc.
  • Insecticide Drench is optional and used to protect trees from damaging insects. This treatment absorbs through the roots of the tree assuring no insect infestation occurs.
