25 May Two Key Ways Artificial Turf Makes Baseball And Softball Fields Easier To Maintain
Athletic field managers know that maintenance costs and labor are impossible to escape — but that doesn’t mean you can’t make things easier on your team.
When you use artificial grass for baseball and softball fields, you’re cutting out a lot of your routine care, not to mention getting rid of outrageous water bills.
But the truth is, even artificial grass requires proper care to ensure performance and longevity. Synthetic turf is a significant upfront investment, so you want to be sure to protect it for years to come.
These are two critical ways that installing artificial grass for your baseball and softball playing fields will make your maintenance process easier overall.
- You Don’t Have To Worry About Dry Grass
Whether your baseball field is used for summer leagues or a local school, it’s susceptible to drying out with a lack of water or under too-hot conditions, actual problems that can arise in southern California. With artificial turf, your field will stay green and even under players’ feet.
However, don’t get lulled into complacency by thinking you don’t need to maintain your field because you can’t see any issues. Remove trash and sweep or rake blade fibers to help them stand up and redistribute infill.
- You Don’t Have To Worry About Mud Or Poor Drainage
The turf areas of your field will have a well-designed drainage layer that prevents pooling water and mud. That can cut down on rain delays, and make your field safer for everyone.
But, if your field is part of a larger athletic complex that isn’t all turf, make sure that rain isn’t causing runoff that is adding silt or dirt to your turf’s infill. And always check edges between clay and turf to make sure that there is no hardening and separating of fibers.
