Expert Synthetic Turf Maintenance in Baltimore, MD

Scientific Plant Service has provided our Baltimore community with comprehensive lawn care services since 1957. In addition to our many natural turf services, we provide care and maintenance to synthetic turf surfaces throughout the area. Synthetic turf is often used for playing fields and public places, so it is essential to keep these fields looking their best and ready for frequent use. Our licensed lawn care providers can deliver the high-quality services you require. Contact Scientific Plant Service today for more information about our Baltimore synthetic turf services, including brush grooming, infill de-compaction, and debris cleaning. 

The Leading Choice for Synthetic Turf Care in Baltimore 

Synthetic turf benefits property owners who want a turf that requires minimal maintenance compared to natural turf. Artificial turf is frequently used for athletic fields, as it requires less upkeep and can look green and lush without requiring fertilizers or frequent watering. Synthetic turf holds up exceptionally well to regular wear and tear and won’t develop dangerous ruts or bare spots like natural turf. Call Scientific Plant Service for Baltimore synthetic turf services to help keep your artificial turf looking and performing its best. 

Routine Brush Grooming in Baltimore, MD

Synthetic turf used for playing surfaces, such as football fields, should be brushed using factory-approved drag brushes every one to four weeks. The interval chosen is dictated by the type and frequency of the field’s use. For instance, if the turf field is used for school recess and grade-school players with lightweight feet, brush grooming may only be needed once per month. If the turf is used for a college football field that hosts frequent games and practices, it may need weekly grooming.

Synthetic Turf Infill De-Compaction

Just as with natural turf surfaces, your infill field can become compacted and impact drainage and playability. Infill fields show signs of compaction after three to four years without proper maintenance. 

At Scientific Plant Service, our specially designed “spring tooth harrow” will loosen, agitate, and level out the infill. The penetration into the infill layer is closely monitored so the base layer of sand is never compromised. To ensure performance, we recommend the service be performed once per year. 

Professional Surface and Debris Cleaning for Baltimore’s Synthetic Turf 

A final essential component of our Baltimore synthetic turf services is topical sweeping and debris cleaning. Our “Verti-Top” synthetic turf cleaning machine has spring tines that reach into rubber infill and work foreign matter up to the surface. The matter is then swept into the machine with a rotary broom. Once the debris is brought into the Verti-Top, it is separated from the crumb rubber, which returns to the field. Finally, a high-powered magnet passes over the surface to extract foreign objects that may remain in the field. The entire Verti-Top is designed with a vacuum system that keeps dust and contaminants from returning to the field. This procedure is recommended for use on a quarterly or as-needed basis.

If you only need to remove pine needles, seeds, or grass clippings, an abbreviated version of this process can be performed. 

No matter what services your synthetic turf needs, Scientific Plant Service can recommend the most effective treatments.
