THIS WEEK’S FIELD TIP
It’s time for the MLB All-Star Break and baseball players who aren’t involved in the game are getting a few days off from the grind of the season… Are you? No matter what level of sports turf management that you are involved in, the growing season is your busiest time of year often involving large amounts of overtime hours and many consecutive days of work with little time for rest. But nothing is more important than making sure you AND your crew is periodically rewarded with some time off. It’s even more important for those of you who have a family that rarely sees you during this time of year.
Take yourself and the family boating or fishing, visit the many fairs and community events in your area, connect with nature and do some mountain biking or hiking and camping. Or hang around the house, have a family picnic and stay cool in the air conditioning. It is so critical find time to decompress and connect with those who miss you the most during this busy time of year. Visit Ballfields.com for more tips and the groundskeeper’s podcast…
