Outdoor sports fields

We understand to maintain sports fields for safe play, they require water. But a few simple tips can help reduce the amount of water required and avoid water wasting when watering sports fields:

  • use deep and infrequent applications of water (watering to field capacity)
  • minimise light frequent hand watering
  • know your irrigation system and how much it applies.
