Sport lawn must have a turf that is resistant to adverse weather conditions and has a high level of wear resistance. In the dry period, the grass should not be too soft and dust formation on it is not desirable. In wet conditions, the formation of mud, puddles and slip is excluded. All this is necessary in order not to injure athletes.
When installing this type of lawn, it is important to provide drainage and carefully prepare the soil in accordance with the weather conditions of a particular region. In order that no puddles and dirt remain after the rain, the surface must be strictly horizontal. It is also important that the lawn is somewhat resilient, since stiffness can lead to injury to people.
Ideally, a sports lawn should have a uniform structure and be smooth. This is achieved due to the special properties of the soil. Therefore, the choice of soil is of great importance exactly as the subsequent regular maintenance of it.
Specialists pay great attention
According to many technologists: "Caring for a sports lawn should be careful and regular and only then it will have excellent performance characteristics". Cut it preferably several times a week.
Cultivation and care of the roll lawn is carried out by special factories, and the buyer only acquires it in ready condition. This is fundamentally different from growing a sports lawn, for which a special composition of herbs is selected, prepare the soil, drainage, make a regular haircut.
Grass for a sports lawn should have a high tillering energy and resistance to trampling. Resistant to trampling are: meadowgrass meadow, white bentgrass, ordinary comb, fescue red, pinnate thin or hairy, creeping crooked, rangeland pasture or English. The mixture usually consists of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 8 species. If the composition includes 8 species of herbs, then they add meadow fescue to them.
There are several technologies for creating a sports lawn. Seed lawn has several advantages: plants adapt to weather conditions, sowing can be done from spring to autumn, seeds are cleaned from weeds. In addition, this is the cheapest way. But before direct sowing it is necessary to perform a number of technological procedures.
