From the ground up

Whether you’re in charge of an athletic field or your family’s back yard, Professional Outdoor Solutions has the tools to improve your turf.


Our “from the ground up” method is what makes our approach to athletic and commercial turf care different. We focus on more than just aesthetics — we build strong foundations that protect the health and safety of athletes, family members and pets.


We call it a “feed the soil” philosophy, as opposed to a “feed the grass” philosophy. We know from more than 40 years of experience that strong root systems produce healthy grass, and coincidentally, healthy turf is aesthetically pleasing.

Andy Ommen

Andy is a graduate of Illinois Wesleyan University in business administration. He has been head groundskeeper for the McLean County PONY Baseball Complex since 2002 and is highly regarded throughout the sports turf industry. Being mentored by MLB and major college groundskeepers led Andy to be part of the 2014 Major League Baseball All-Star Game grounds crew at Target Field in Minneapolis. He focuses intently on the safety of athletic field surfaces, which has resulted in his fields being recognized nationally as 2017 National STMA Field of the Year and 2018 Illinois STMA Field of the Year winners. In his free time, Andy enjoys spending time with his family in Bloomington, Illinois, and taking trips to visit his two adult sons who now reside in Texas.
