Abstract/Contents:Identifies factors that potentially affect turfgrass growth, highlighting wear, weather, construction procedures, soil drainage, soil acidity, repair delay, budgetary restrictions, and others. Suggests that "turfgrass on playing surfaces which have deteriorated for anyone [any one] of the cited and/or other reasons can be effectively restored to a satisfactory condition by means of renovation procedures exclusive of correction of built-in construction deficiencies." Lists 21 changes in cultural practice that may be taken in order to renovate turf. Emphasizes that this plan "is not a substitute for negligence in maintenance, abuse in use and/or drainage problems associated with deficiencies in construction." Concludes that "the most opportune and less [least] costly time for providing satisfactory drainage would be during the initial construction of the field."
