Not surprisingly, sports field maintenance requires different methods and approaches to achieve results than the maintenance of landscape grass or lawns. For example, to keep the playing area in top condition field maintenance programs should include frequent mowing. This makes the grass more wear-resistant and reduces clumps that can cause trip and fall injuries. Proper care will also include a schedule to water regularly (being careful not to over-water), aerate, fertilize and renovate promptly when needed to avoid further deterioration. Additionally, field maintenance programs will be adjusted according to the sport being played. This is due not only to the difference in wear and tear from sport to sport but also to the seasonal availability of the field to carry out procedures such as over-seeding.
