Factors in Effective Field Turf Installation

Sports turf is an important investment for any sports complex. Make sure you get all the benefits of professional field turf installation – and none of the drawbacks of trying to do it yourself. Whether you’re a golf superintendent evaluating which turf to install on the green or managing a sports complex, we can help. A few tips to get you started:


  1. Manage your time.
    For a large project like field turf installation, you need the right amount of manpower and enough time to get the job done. Trying to rush this process will only result in costly mistakes. Get a realistic time frame and make sure that your club or complex is upfront with members about how the installation process will affect them.
    Sometimes it can be difficult to gauge what a reasonable time frame for such a project may look like. And the estimates may vary depending on the primary uses of the field or green. If you are unsure about time frame and scheduling, it’s better to be safe than sorry. You can always bring in our professional team for a consultation, and we can go over not only how much time installation may take, but also provide suggestions on which turf may work best for your needs. This will give you peace of mind knowing that the disruption in play a switch in turf may cause will be minimized and the installation process will be personalized for you.
  2. Choose a Professional Crew.
    Field turf installation is a large-scale process. Make sure you work with people who have experience in this field (pun intended). This way they can help troubleshoot and save time should an unexpected issue arise.
    Modern Turf’s expert consultants make recommendations on how best to go about an installation. From helping you plan out a schedule to making certain the turf is installed properly, our experts will make certain your field is cared for in its transition.
  3. Don’t Forget the Prep Work.
    Field turf will have a better chance at success if you follow the traditional steps leading up to the actual installation. This means laying the groundwork, so to speak, for the turf and making sure things like drainage and runoff are sorted. Of course, we can help you map this out as well. Our consultants will go over what needs to be done prior to the install with you once you make a decision on turf type.

Sports surface will have a big impact on the performance the players’ experience. Make sure your field turf installation is the best it can be.
