Oftentimes a coach or grounds manager will battle rain running onto the playing surface from a hard surface or water movement causing material loss from a playing surface. A trick to assist in possibly managing this issue is to use straw swaddles.
Depending on conditions, the straw swaddle may lessen the water to a point to lessen or eliminate the issue. This is why I recommend this as a first step for certain playing surfaces due to the inexpensive cost of the process. If this does not solve the issue a manager may be looking at a more detailed and costly remedy.
