UTSA Soccer Field: Verticutting

Video Transcription

Hi I'm Brannon Burkes I'm the sports turf manager here at UTSA’s soccer facility, Park West Athletic Complex. We like to verticut three times a year. We may do more, these are higher use facilities so we may verticut anywhere from three to six times a year. We like to verticut primarily in the springtime as we are transitioning from ryegrass back to our Bermuda grass. We’ll do it once again in the summer prior to the fall seasons whether that’s soccer, track, or baseball. Then we'll do a third verticutting to prep the surface for overseeding in the fall.
