Lessons of Limited Use: Natural Grass Field Maintenance Planning for 2020 into 2021

August 13, 2020

Zoom Meeting


Speaker: Jerad Minnick, Lead Advisor, Natural Grass Advisory Group; Field Surface Consultant, Major League Soccer



The use of sports fields is starting to return across Maryland. Going into June, natural grass fields looked to be in excellent condition after the “rest” during a spring and early summer of limited or no use. But since June 1, Mother Nature has unleashed near historic heat across the Mid-Atlantic region, leaving many grass fields showing stress similar to years with high-use.

As fall maintenance work on natural grass fields is set to begin, this session will focus on the lessons - and the solutions from those lessons - that have come out of 2020’s ups and downs. New solutions are plentiful as field mangers work to help their grass fields take more.



Jerad Minnick is Lead Advisor at Natural Grass Advisory Group™ and Field Surface Consultant for Major League Soccer.  A former Sports Field Manager, Minnick brings his on-field experiences to clients and into the classroom. Working with fields around the world, from Parks and Professional, Jerad is dedicated specifically to improving high-use natural grass fields #GrassCanTakeMore®

He has served as Manager of Grounds for the Kansas City Royals, built Sporting Kansas City’s entire field maintenance department as their first Director of Grounds, and lead the Grounds and Environmental Management team at Maryland SoccerPlex.
