Maintenance Week

 

Week commencing 29th July we will be verti-draining with a 13mm solid tine to a depth of 6-8 inches, scarifying with a 3mm blade at a 20mm depth, over seeding with pure bent and applying a heavy dressing.

The verti-drain relievs soil compaction and introduces air space for healthier and increased root growth.

Scarifying helps lower the organic matter content in the top 25mm.

Over seeding with pure bent helps improve the grass species throughout the playing surface. 

The groove made from scarifying creates a perfect pod for the seedling to grow. 

The GKB sandfiller used for scarifying infills the grove with kiln dried sand preventing the side walls from collapsing. 

A heavy top dressing will be applied to increase sand inputs helping dilute organic matter and aid in creating a smooth playing surface.  

 The greens will recieve a fertiliser application a week before to help aid recovery.

Once the new seedlings start to germinate a growth regulator will be applied to increase root growth creating a healthier grass plant.
