Maintaining Trees and Lawns

The Services You Should Want For Your Sports Field

by Cherly Wheeler

When looking for sports field maintenance services for your particular park, you no doubt consider the most obvious things: the health of the grass, the correct line markings, etc. However, there is more to a complete sports field maintenance services package, and you should look for options that have a more holistic attitude about the care of your park. With a little bit of preparation and research, you can get a lot more bang for your buck and, consequently, a more attractive park. Here are some services you should be trying to get.

Lighting Maintenance

Lots of sports in Australia are played at night, and that makes adequate lighting extremely important. But these big lights have a lot of components that wear out at different times and thus require a regular check-up to ensure nothing is prematurely going to break. The last thing you want is for your lights to fail on an important night. It is always better to be proactive rather than reactive, and that is why great sports field maintenance services offer lighting check-ups as either an optional extra or part of their regular pricing. If you have large lighting, this is a no-brainer. 

Bathroom Maintenance

A crucial part of a beloved sports field is the amenities that go along with it. Perhaps none are more important than the bathroom, and a good public bathroom can make or break a sports field's popularity with local residents. There is a lot of effort that goes into keeping these public bathrooms looking clean, and a good sports field maintenance service will recognise that. Changing the toilet paper, cleaning the facilities and maintaining the plumbing and lighting must be done regularly, and this is best left to the professionals. 

Drainage Maintenance 

Australia has very temperamental weather, and in most parts of the country, rain is just a few hours away at any given time. That can be frustrating to deal with as the owner of a sports field that gets regular use, but there are ways to combat it. Clever design can go a long way toward mitigating these challenges, but these drainage designs require proper maintenance to ensure they do not get blocked and create a worse problem than if they were not there at all. This maintenance requires specialised knowledge of the system and of how to continue its upkeep to a high standard. That is why a professional service by a good contractor is vital for the playability of your sports field surface.
