How to fix your lumpy bumpy turf

evaluate dirt-turf edge

1. Start by mowing the grass to about an inch and a half. Also water if your ground is not moist. The next step does not work so well if your ground is dry and hard.

2. Core aerate in multiple directions so you have at least 10-15 holes per square foot. This will mean at least 2 passes if not as many as 4. You should get the core holes down 3-4 inches.

3. Let the cores set and dry a bit. They can become your topdressing since you did so many passes. Then pull a metal mesh screen drag around on the infield grass to break up the cores. This levels them out and fills in many of the small dips.

4. You might be left with some small bumps that the hand roller can take care of. If you do this same process again in about 3-4 weeks, you should have a perfectly flat field.

This is just one way to level lumpy, bumpy infield turf.
There are at least five more.
