THIS WEEK’S FIELD TIP

For traditional grass infields, there are really two dragging patterns to consider. The Parallel Drag Pattern is basically following a path parallel to the turf edges of the infield skin, working your way inward. Watch your speed while cornering, slower is better. If you go too fast you’ll toss excess material toward the outer edge of the drag which will pile up in those areas.

The Overlapping Circles Pattern is used in conjunction with the parallel pattern to cross drag the infield for a smoother surface. When dragging in overlapping circles it is very important to go slow. If you go too fast it can cause a “bowling out” of the center of your infield.

You can learn more about dragging patterings at this Groundskeeper University lesson, 104. Infield Skin Game Day Prep: Dragging Patterns…
