    A Tale of Two Fields: Selection, Installation, Management and Replacement of Synthetic Turf


    Ed Olsen, Park & Forestry Department, Needham, MA

    Bradlee Mezquita, Tighe & Bond, Inc., Westfield, MA

    From site selection and design to installation and care, sport turf professionals are responsible for every aspect of synthetic turf management.  We’ll take a look at two athletic fields in Needham, MA – DeFazio and Memorial – that were resurfaced over the course of a couple of months this past summer.  Learn what worked and what didn’t. Take away lessons learned from experienced SFMs. See best-in-class demos of grooming and maintenance practices. If you work with synthetic turf, you do not want to miss this workshop – jam-packed with practical advice and clear solutions.
