Top 14 Things to Avoid on Your Field for Proper Turf Care

Synthetic turf systems are designed to resist both wear and exposure to the elements. The effectiveness of their materials, design, and construction is demonstrated by the long life of fields under heavy use in many climates. With a big facility to-do list, it can be difficult to know what to prioritize for proper turf field care.

How not to abuse your synthetic turf

  1. Any unauthorized use.
  2. Heavy static loads.
  3. Fireworks, open flames, etc.
  4. Storage of materials such as drums, lumber, equipment, etc.
  5. Long metal spike shoes.
