In the News: River Campus

The picturesque River Campus is featured in the August 2020 edition of SportsField Management magazine. Get River Campus Director Bret Mash talking about the annual transition from ryegrass to bermudagrass, and it turns into a two-page spread.
In a case study provided by Ecologel, makers of CytoGrow, River Campus Director Bret Mash talks about how his crew uses an EPA-registered, seaweed-based root growth biostimulant to accelerate the transition between grasses on athletic fields — 26 of the school’s 80 acres in North Nashville. Jump to page 36 of SportsField Management magazine linked here to read “Reviving Bermudagrass in the Transition Zone.”

The case study includes a mention of the entire River Campus team, including Drew Stinson, Ty Johnson, Dillon Anderson, and Brian McLaughlin Williams.

“We do it all here, from the turf care to game prep to irrigation to construction,” Mash told the magazine. “No contractors. We do everything from tree trimming to replacing toilet paper in the bathrooms. I enjoy the work and I think my guys all enjoy the work. We’ve had a lot of success here, in this area and others, because I have a really good crew. We would not have had that success without them. Ownership is a great motivator to get it right.”
