Maintain a Soccer Field with the Proper Tools and Equipment
Posted by: Erika Green on October 16, 2018
Every soccer field project is different. For some contractors, you may be tasked to remodel a vacant lot with a new turf field for a local park. For others, you may earn a job that requires ongoing maintenance and upkeep for an existing field.
Regardless of the job, the work can’t be done without the proper tools and equipment. Take maintenance for a soccer field as an example. A lot goes into the upkeep, but tasks will go smoother when you rent what you need from The Home Depot Rental:
Soccer fields go through the ringer season after season – whether it’s getting trampled from players’ cleats or surviving rain or snowstorms – so it’s important to include aeration as part of your annual maintenance tasks.
Aerating the field helps to loosen compacted soil, which allows better flow of air, water and nutrients to the roots. For a job like this, we offer Toro and Classen aerators.
Aeration is often followed by overseeding, which is the process of spreading grass seed to enhance a lawn’s growth and color. You’ll want to ensure you keep your soccer field as dense and sturdy as possible, and our Classen overseeders make the process quick, easy, and rewarding.

One of the most important maintenance jobs for a soccer field is mowing. It’s a job that requires attention at least once a week, so it’s crucial you have the right lawn mower to nail that perfect grass cutting height.
Luckily, we have commercial duty mowers available for rent. Our line of Toro lawn mowers is the way to go.
Field renovations and upkeep likely require transporting a lot of materials around the designated area. That said, you may want to invest in renting a trailer to have handy.
When you have the right materials, maintaining a soccer field is a pretty straightforward job. Stop by one of our rental locations to learn about what else we carry that can help you on the jobsite.
