#LifeOnTheRoad - Tricks of the Trade - Circle Stencil

This is another post in a periodic series entitled #LifeOnTheRoad.  The background is simple.  During my travels I  encounter many grounds managers/coaches doing great things.  Because of this, I have started this series.  The goal - expose more grounds managers, coaches, architects, etc to areas of facility and sports turf maintenance that may be implemented to their facility/design.

During my travels to Citi Field (New York, NY) and Dodger Stadium (Los Angeles, CA) the past month I observed an easy and effective way to paint circles.  Fielding circles are needed for cricket.  What is a quick and easy way to paint circles?  Simply cut out the bottom of the Dubble Bubble bucket.  Instant circle stencil with sides to prevent over spray. To top it off, carry the bucket/stencil around your field on a tray to eliminate any drips as you walk the surface.

Credit goes to the New York Mets Grounds Crew for the idea.  Innovation can come in many, and sometime simple ways!
