1. Have the soil tested: Have a soil test done to ensure the turf has all the nutrients necessary to recover from extensive use.
2. Overseed often: You should overseed the turf frequently to ensure continued new growth to replace the damaged turf. For best results, you should seed after aerating the turf.
3. Aerate: Heavy traffic on turf compacts the turf. Aerate the turf regularly to keep the turf healthy.
4. Keep mower blades sharp: It’s important to keep the mower blade sharp to avoid damaging the turf. A dull blade will rip, rather than cut the turf.
5. Use deep, infrequent watering: Water infrequently for a longer period of time instead of frequently for a short period of time. This will help encourage deep root growth.
