Abstract/Contents:Suggests that "special events often mean extra-heavy traffic that can injure turfgrasses and compact the soil as visitors and vehicles move throughout the landscape." Offers maintenance practice suggestions to complete before the event, including aeration; adjusted cutting height; nitrogen, potassium, lime and calcium applications; and plant growth regulation. Also discusses potential maintenance procedures during the event, including routing traffic and portable fans. Concludes that "managing turf before, during and after a special event often requires creativity, flexibility and an increased budget. Monies invested in portable flooring, fans, routing signs and additional turf care products often result in healthier, wear-resistant turfgrasses and less overall turf damage."
