Why Conduct A Sports Turf Soil Study?

What is a soil study?

 

A soil study is the act of studying each separate field or turf area that you may have and analyzing it for its uniqueness. This is done in order to responsibly recommend next steps for your sports turf. This study makes it possible to identify where your soil currently lies in regards to nutrient composition and soil deficiencies. When nutrients are low in the turf soil, these stresses can reduce the health and vigor of your grass. It also increases chances of damages from outlying factors such as insects, diseases, drought, etc.

It is important to take this step before moving forward because it can save valuable time, money, and effort. By doing research first, you know what is best and avoid taking steps that do not correctly address the problems that your turf might have.

Commonwealth Sports Turf provides their clients with a complete sports turf soil study on each of their separate turf areas. We even include a graphical representation in a document that visually contrasts where your soil is at and where it should be in order to have successful, beautiful sports turf growth. Commonwealth Sports Turf also provides annual studies to follow up with the results and make any changes that might be necessary.
