THIS WEEK’S FIELD THOUGHTS

With autumn sports getting ready to ramp up in the coming weeks and with summer baseball/softball season winding down, it’s wise to finalize your fall renovations NOW. It’s always amazing to me how many people in our industry wait until the last minute, scrambling at the eleventh hour to try to pull a project together. Now, they may be successful at pulling that off, but it surely won’t happen without some stress for the manager and his or her crew.

The Earlier The Better: If your fall renovations involves bringing in contractors, you’ll want to lock them in quickly before they get booked up for the fall. The rule here is the earlier in the year you can confirm the project, the better. Part of your fall renovations may require some quantitative testing, such as a soil fertility test for grass areas. These tests are used to help determine your fertility needs in order to bring your soil fertility up to optimum levels for your turf grass. This is always a good idea, especially going into fall as the soils have been depleted somewhat from the active summer growing season… Click to continue reading about planning for Fall Renovations from Beacon’s head groundskeeper, Paul Zwaska:  Just Around the Corner?
