Three Reasons Why Athletic Fields Should Be Maintained by Professionals
What’s the first thing you notice when you walk into a ballpark on a beautiful spring day? Chances are, it’s not the players or the grandstands…it’s the perfectly manicured, “greenest-thing-you’ve-ever-seen” field.
For most of us living in the cities and suburbs, athletic fields are centerpieces of community life – whether that life happens on campuses, in stadiums, or in neighborhood parks. But when an athletic field is poorly kept, it will not only discourage that community life, it could even put our kids at risk for injury.
Here are three reasons why your athletic fields should be maintained by professionals this spring and beyond:
- Professionally maintained fields are safer – Professional landscapers know how to identify areas on a field where injuries could occur – and unlike amateur landscapers, they know what to do to fix those problem spots to last through the rigors of a game. That means fewer injuries for players, and lower liability risks for schools, recreation centers, and local governments that administer the games.
- Professionally maintained fields improve the playing experience – There’s nothing like playing on a great athletic field – or watching top athletes (or cute kids) compete on one. A top-quality field sets the stage for top quality play.
- Professionally maintained fields are easier to keep healthy – A professional landscaper has years of training and firsthand experience in grass and soil care, pest, weed, and disease control, and other important areas of lawn maintenance. That means they will be working proactively throughout the year to prevent costly long-term problems from happening in the first place.
The bottom line: when it comes to keeping your athletic fields safe, healthy, and easy to maintain, there is no substitute for the work of professional landscapers – like the ones you will find at Diamond Landscapes & Athletic Fields, Inc.
