June 7, 2019 – The City of Victoria, B.C. will use funds originally earmarked for a second playing field at Topaz Park to help design a new artificial turf field for Victoria High School. Council has agreed to a staff recommendation to replace the field at Topaz and designate $250,000 toward a replacement field at the high school.
June 7, 2019 – A number of local citizens are calling for the closure of artificial turf sports fields at Vancouver's Trillium Park after lab tests revealed the presence of lead among the crumb rubber infill. Although tests showed the amounts of lead were within federal safety guidelines, the citizens say the chance of contamination within storm sewers, shrubs and grass is enough of a concern to warrant the fields' shutdown.
June 6, 2019 – As public complaints continue to mount about Guelph's overgrown sports fields, the city has assured user groups it is doing its best to keep up with field maintenance in the face of excessively wet weather. In many cases, staff can't get mowers onto the extremely wet fields and turf is higher than normal.
June 4, 2019 – Adult leagues have been banned from playing baseball and softball at the MacGregor Park diamond in Toronto due to numerous home run balls hitting an adjacent new condominium building. Deemed off limits now for adult play, closure of the park – centrally located to accommodate 99 per cent of the user leagues – will force players to commute to other parts of the city.
Summer has arrived, meaning professional landscape contractors are in the thick of the mowing season. With customer demands high and busy schedules testing the durability of equipment, it is it critical to arm all operators with the information they need to keep machines up and running, regardless of demands they face each day.
Contractors agree that sidewalks pose some of the biggest challenges in winter maintenance – high labour and high risk. Taking a preventative approach to sidewalk maintenance provides solutions for both of these concerns. It also allows companies that are interested in adding liquids to their operations to start out on a smaller scale.
