Abstract/Contents:Suggests that drainage may be a main factor in the health of an athletic field, explaining that "the majority of the problem fields I've seen were caused at least in part due to poor drainage issues." Provides recommendations on improving field drainage and differentiating between sand- and soil-based root zones. Mentions that "a common mistake is to place 1-3 inches of 'black dirt' on top of the existing soil in an attempt to provide enriched soil for turf roots." Adds that surface drainage is often overlooked, and that to provide sufficient surface drainage, fields must be built with a 1-2% [percent] crown."
