Infield Grooming

Infield Grooming

The purpose for infield grooming is two-fold. Safety is the foremost goal. As playing surfaces get used, they become uneven, creating tripping hazards for athletes. Adding new infield mix, on a yearly basis, will help to correct these grade variations. While safety is being addressed, infield grooming has another purpose, which is improving the field’s appearance. Creating crisp, straight lines on turf edges also beautifies playing surfaces, providing definition between turf and infield areas.

In 1997, KAFMO became incorporated as the Pennsylvania chapter of the Sports Turf Managers Association.
