It’s Time to Plan

If you have fall renovations in mind, then it’s definitely time to plan. The issues are fresh in your mind, fall is the perfect time to fix the problems that dogged you all summer.

Spring and summer can be exausting for field managers. So it’s no surprise their fields that get so much use in the summer are left idle in the fall. But when you think about it, fall is the perfect time to take care of those darn problem areas that you had to work around this year. Fix the low spots, remove the lips, get some much needed water onto the turf and infields. How about taking a close look at the infield soils? Are they too dusty? Too greasy?

Do they erode in the heavy spring rains? How about tidying up the edging, or replacing that worn-out home plate or pitching rubber? Wouldn’t the kids love a properly-shaped pitching mound next year?

And, our staff is eager to help. We love this stuff. Here is what one of our customers told us recently …

“The Friends of Hoggard Baseball recently completed Phase 1 of the renovation to its baseball facility at Hoggard High School. I want to thank everyone at Beacon Athletics for your support during the project. The customer service Beacon provided during the planning and construction of the facility has made all the difference in the world.” — John Zabriskie, Howard K. Jordan General Contractors
