THIS WEEK’S FIELD THOUGHTS

The peak of summer has past, our daily length of daylight is beginning to decrease and our normal high temperatures are starting their downward trend towards fall and, dare I say, winter. In just a couple weeks, football, at all levels, begins its training camps and exhibition schedule in preparation for the main fall season. I can hardly wait! In the meantime, many sports turf managers are beginning to plan their late summer and fall renovations. If you are managing fall football and soccer fields, you are planning your strategy to keep grass on your fields as thick as possible for as deep into the fall season as possible. This is a challenging job, especially for northern turf managers as winter begins to creep in towards the latter part of the season. But there is an excellent tool for extending the growing season on your turf… Turf Blankets!... Click to continue reading about turf blankets:  ‘Tuck In Your Turf’ This Fall

FieldSaver™ Turf Growth Cover

Typically ships within 2-3 weeks. Coverup and green up, year-round. These turf blankets help improve cold temperature seed germination, accelerate spring green-up and reduce winter desiccation. Sized perfectly for most baseball, football, or soccer fields. Comes hemmed and grommeted on all sides with sod staples to hold it down. Can be customized to fit your specific needs. (Discount thru July 31 applied automatically)

BenchZone® Sideline Turf Protectors
SAVE $76 – $145

Typically ships within 10-15 business days. Protect your sidelines with Vipol® Matrix mesh — an open weave that will not absorb liquids, but also will not smother grass by letting air and sunlight through. Cleats won’t penetrate, but rain, sports drinks, etc., will drain right through. (Discount thru July 31 applied automatically)
