Time to Change Out Those Athletic Field Covers and Summer Routines

Posted by CanopiesAnd Tarps on Aug 6th 2014

With Septembers arrival on the horizon, it is undoubtedly time to take another look at your venues maintenance calendar and athletic field covers. After all, it wont be long before the ground frost seeps in and the flurries start to fly. We know, it seems hard to believe when its still 80 degrees outside but trust us, its true.

If you hope to have a backache-free spring opening, autumn is the perfect time to treat weeds and bust out the high-potassium, low-nitrogen fertilizer. In our experience, taking both steps will make for a lush, weed free play area once the athletic field covers come back off. But you dont have to just take our athletic field cover experts word for it. Try our suggestion out for yourself this year and see.

In addition, you may want to think about overseeding the fields at this time. It really helps ensure that the fields will be ready in time for those spring baseball practices. Stocking up on absorbent pads and checking on the fields irrigation system is helpful in that regard too. It will reduce or eliminate the amount of standing water problems that could crop up in the months ahead. In most instances, athletic field safe sorbents may be found through janitorial and maintenance supply companies. As for the work tarps, truck covers and drainage tarps sometimes used when completing such jobs, weve got you covered. Youll find them all and more in our current inventory list.

Oh, and dont forget about maintaining the playing fields structures, like the bull pen and locker rooms as well. Consider making any fence repairs and adding a few coats of paint. Painters tarps, machine covers, privacy fence tarps and bull pen covers are handy to have available during such seasonal tasks.
