An athletic field that we maintain has poor drainage. The field is cored/seeded 2x per year along w/ a fertilizer schedule that has the Kentucky Bluegrass/Ryegrass fields looking plush. The problem is, after even light rain, the fields remain wet for days. Play continues thru the wet field and causes a mess.
Anyone ever use Axis??? gypsum??? Water absorbing soil conditioners?? Any experience w/ this problem or suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi DanteLawn,

Until someone else gets back to you, here is a thread that discusses athletic field drainage.

"Properly managed soils will percolate better during these periods allowing the turf to use the water that might otherwise run off. In some cases, I've seen LESCO-FLOW improve percolation so much that puddles on athletic field began to drain away without expensive drainage work. This only works in some conditions, particularly older sand based fields that have been under managed."
