Like Landscapers, Sports Turf Managers and Golf Course Superintendents are required to maintain beautiful grounds with healthy landscapes. But the most important requirement of their job is maintaining turf playability, and they are held to very high expectations.
Sports turf playability and recovery is a daily struggle. No matter how much abuse the turf endured the day(s), week(s) or month(s) before, it is expected to perform perfectly on game day. goals include a smooth surface with the right amount of give as well as thick, deeply rooted turf that will not shear.
A very important part of optimum playability also includes the safety of the athletes and minimizing risk of injury. Common turf condition goals include a smooth surface with the right amount of give as well as thick, deeply rooted turf that will not shear.
Topdressing with STA Certified TurfDress Compost, Cyclone Compost and TurfSoil increases soil’s organic matter which enhances soil structure. This prevents compaction and improves percolation/drainage and moisture retention while providing slow release organic nutrients. All these benefits promote healthy turf with deep, strong root zones that are more equipped to withstand constant use and abuse, and be able to recover quickly after hard play.
