Infields #1 & #2 Get a Facelift !!

Posted by Michael Polikoff at Mar 8, 2012 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )

After consulting with many turf specialists, we concluded that the infield sod and running surfaces on fields #1 and #2 were in desperate need of repair.  So we partnered with DeLea Sod Farms to help us renovate the infields.  In less than two days, Michael Polikoff and Dexter assisted Jim DeLea and his crew to remove the sod from both infields, laser grade and level the entire infield area to a precisely crowned pitch using high-tech equipment, applied  starter fertilizer, laid the sod and meticulously groomed the running surfaces.  Thank you DeLea for a terrific job, we couldn't have done it without you!
