Abstract/Contents:Overviews the results of three studies designed to examine the benefits of using mesh elements in high sand root zones in sports fields. Explains that the use of mesh can increase the rate of recovery in divots, reduced compaction, increase consistency of ball bounce resiliency, and reduce cleat tear of turf. Provides guidelines for the use of mesh, such as a 11-pounds per cubic yard inclusion rate, a 6-inch depth of inclusion, and taking special approaches to mixing, distribution, and leveling.
