Aeration and Top Dressing for Playable Athletic Fields
When applying lawn care to athletic fields, it’s essential to develop strategies that keep your turf surface thick and uniform while the soil profile stays loose and well-drained. This ensures a playable field that reduces the risk of rainouts and personal injuries.
Deep-tine aeration is the first step to a well-drained athletic field. Scientific Plant Service uses the Verti-Drain deep tine aerator, which can penetrate as much as 16 inches into the soil. Surface aeration also opens the soul and reduces thatch by removing soil cylinders up to 4 inches deep. We recommend taking advantage of the open surface after aeration to top-dress the field with compost or sand.
Apply Nutrients and Prevent Damage with Custom Field Fertilization
A critical part of Baltimore athletic field maintenance is professional disease and weed prevention, nutrient management, and insect control. The high-quality equipment used by Scientific Plant Service guarantees that all pesticides are applied to your field at precise label recommendations. We offer specific services, such as:
- Custom annual programs
- “On call” pesticide applications
- Plant growth regulators (PGR)
- Specialized nutrient applications
- Drainage/soil enhancers
Our turf nutrition programs begin with a soil test so we can formulate the most effective plan. The primary nitrogen source for our fertilization programs is the POLYON fertilizer. This highly effective fertilizer lets us apply a year’s worth of nitrogen with just one application. That means your athletic field requires fewer applications and maintains a uniform color.
