Lip Prevention Quiz Please sign up for the course before taking this quiz. Heavy winds aren’t a factor with lips, but heavy rains can cause topdressing and infield soil to migrate to the outer turf edge.1 True False If your tractor is going too fast while you’re dragging the infield, you can toss loose material onto the turf edge, potentially creating a lip. What other negative effect can you have when dragging too fast?1 Infield soil will awkwardly turn dark orange in color. Finishing your field maintenance tasks too quickly will make it appear that you are not doing a good job. You will cause unnecessary wear on your tractor. You'll 'bowl out' the infield skin, creating a drainage and puddling problem. To help prevent or reduce lip formation along the turf grass edge, you should:1 Go slow, especially when turning, as you nail drag or float drag the infield. Never nail drag deeper than 1/2 inch. Hand drag along the turf edges, then stay about 6 inches away from the turf edge when dragging the infield with your tractor. All of the above.
