Abstract/Contents:Highlights potential advantages of painting lines and logos on sports fields, focusing on measurements, dry line marking, field marking paint, and painting equipment. Recommends mowing turf before painting it, suggesting that "this will help prevent a burning effect." Advises against painting wet grass, explaining that "paint does not adhere well to wet grass." Provides paint mixing and application tips, stating that moistening infield dirt before painting might "prevent the paint beading up in the dust." Mentions the possible use of an aerosol can of green paint or turf colorants for covering up mistakes.
