This is a presentation I gave for a seminar at Bangkok Thonburi University in July 2018. I explained, for Thailand's climate, how I would work with grasses and soils to achieve these goals:
- Suitable gradient and free from dips and hollows
- Well drained
- Good grass cover of desirable grass species
- Firm and stable to give good playing characteristics
Those are some of the "main characteristics of the playing surface that need to be achieved," taken directly from FIFA's "Manager's Guide to Natural Grass Football Pitches."
