Field Intersections; Tricky Business
Perfect intersections are the cornerstone (pun intended/U/420/Userfiles/Blog/Bad-2BField-2BLining-2Bby-2BMPAJ-300x169.jpg" width="320" />
To help you make sure that you are creating perfect 90 degree angles at each and every location we recommend using marking whiskers
to quickly and accurately locate your intersections.
The marking whiskers
are bundles of brightly colored nylon that are hammered into the ground after being attached to either a 60 penny nail
or a composite nail
. (the composite nail gets bonus points for being less of threat to your mowers. It will break instead of damaging the mower blade if the mower ever pulls the whisker out of the ground). You trim the whiskers to the height of the grass and can leave it in there all season. After your whiskers are in you will easily be able to find and string the lines so that they will be perfectly straight every time.
Some other items that will help you out:
– circles are a pain to paint, this tool will make it the easiest part of painting the field
– string gets tangled and takes a long time to rewind, let’s use a power drill and take an early lunch.
– another form of whisker for those that love options
– versatile construction grade anchors. These go in the ground and will never come out marking permanent locations. (take a look, we make whisker plugs
for them as well!)
