Field Restoration Well UnderwayLeague Wizard | July 6, 2011
As planned, the funds raised during the first annual MYSA fundraiser are being used to help restore our badly damaged playing fields this summer.That money, combined with funds from the City of Mebane and the MYSA general budget will ensure the $12,000 restoration project proceeds as scheduled. The restoration has been a fairly involved process, including:
- Soil tests and adjusting treatments as necessary
- Aerabation and aeration to break up the hard ground
- Topdressing – putting down a think layer of sand to level out the fields and help the new grass grow
- Sprigging – where new grass sprouts are plugged into the ground to grow
- Watering and fertilizing throughout the summer growing season
The soccer complex will remain closed for the rest of the summer.
