LAKESHORE PUBLIC SCHOOLS
"I have had the great fortune of working with David Stacey and the RZ Turf Crew for the past 17 years and the results that we have had are amazing. We have worked together on rehabbing both existing lawns & athletic fields as well as planning, designing and installing new lawns, practice and competition fields for both our school and community. Their knowledge and expertise on infield surfaces and grass playing surfaces is second to none. The ongoing physical care, maintenance plans and advice that we receive after installation is what keeps our fields and playing surfaces as some of area's best."

LAKESHORE YOUTH BASEBALL & SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION (LYBSA)
(Lincoln Charter Township, Stevensville, MI)
"Our park would not be one of the premier parks in the state without the continuing partnership with yourself and RZ Turf. Your company has ALWAYS gone above and beyond for us and it is evident that you love what you do and stand behind your work. For other teams/leagues that visit our park and ask us how we do it, I tell them to rely on experts and give them your contact information. I also tell them to make sure they are looking at apples to apples if just evaluating a fertilizer program, because anyone can throw down fertilizer, but you provide a turf management program and there is a dramatic difference as we have learned."

SCHOOL CITY OF MISHAWAKA
(Lincoln Charter Township, Mishawaka, Indiana)
"On behalf of School City of Mishawaka we are extremely pleased with the current football field conditions at Mishawaka High School's Steele Stadium. The RZ Turf team exceeded our expectations from the very start. After the initial field assessment, the RZ Turf team thoroughly explained the current issues and conditions resulting in native soil, massive organic build-up and virtually zero drainage. Their plan to eliminate the issues included the installation of drainage trenches with tile, gravel and USGA sand. In addition to this, the entire field was "killed off" and covered with a 2" USGA Grade Sand Cap. The "Built-up Sand Cap" field was then drill seeded and top dressed with several fertilizer applications. The attention to detail, continuous care and education to school staff was above and beyond the service we expected. We are super proud of our football field, not to mention saving hundreds of thousands of dollars by staying with a natural turf. Ongoing care costs will even be less the cost to maintain an artificial field. As a corporation, we truly believe a natural turf field is here to stay in Mishawaka, thanks to David Stacey and his team from RZ Turf!"
- MICHAEL P FAULKNER, School City of Mishawaka – Director of Operations
