Shape and Restore Your Baltimore Athletic Fields with Professional Grading and Sodding

After a season of intense use, your natural turf athletic field in Baltimore needs restoration. With the right equipment, Scientific Plant Service can give your land the makeover it needs to be both visually appealing and safe for activities. We may till under an existing field to prepare it for fine grading and big roll sod installation with the aid of our Rotadairon Soil Conditioner. Because we utilize “big roll” sod instead of palletized sod, there are fewer seams. Reduced seams promote quicker sod growth and a more level, consistent playing field. 

Top Dressing and Aeration Improve Playable Athletic Fields

It is crucial to use Baltimore athletic field services that maintain a loose, well-drained soil profile and a thick, uniform turf surface. Healthy soil and turf decrease the possibility of rainouts and injuries to individuals, which makes your field much more playable. 

The first step for maintaining a well-drained athletic field is deep-tine aeration. The Verti-Drain deep tine aerator Scientific Plant Service utilizes can reach up to 12 inches into the ground under the right conditions. Traditional core aeration opens up the soil and reduces thatch. After aeration, we recommend top-dressing the field with sand or compost. 

Apply Nutrients and Prevent Damage with Custom Fertilization 

Keep your athletic field in excellent condition with professional disease and weed prevention, nutrition management, and insect control. Scientific Plant Service’s modern and effective equipment ensures that all pesticides are sprayed per exact label guidelines. Our specific services include: 

  • “On call” pesticide applications
  • Custom annual programs
  • Drainage/soil enhancers
  • Specialized nutrient applications
  • Plant growth regulators (PGR)

A soil test is the first step in our lawn nutrition programs and helps us create an effective plan. We use POLYON fertilizer as the primary nitrogen source for our fertilization programs. With only one application of this incredibly efficient fertilizer, we can provide enough nitrogen to last a year. This means that fewer treatments are needed to maintain the consistent color of your athletic field.

Infield Turf Services for Baseball and Softball Fields in Baltimore

Baltimore athletic field services go beyond caring for the grass. Infield upkeep is crucial for keeping a baseball or softball diamond in top condition. We will grade the infields to guarantee that water moves away from the playing surface.

The pitcher’s mound and batter’s box are the regions that are most often worn down. We may construct a new mound with our infield clay mix and inlaid clay bricks. These blocks lessen player wear throughout the season from “digging in” and provide superior footing. 

If you need to care for Baltimore athletic fields of any kind, contact Scientific Plant Service for comprehensive care.
