Green improvements are usually carried out during the off season or any breaks that usually occur during the season. Time is generally spent in maintaining and protecting the green ensuring that an even and consistent grass cover is maintained while producing optimum playing conditions. Once the green is in play reliance is placed on all the good work that has been done either through renovations or pre-season work to ensure it plays to its potential.

Hollow tining is one form of Aeration. We can perform it in the spring time to allow soil temperature to rise quickly and to allow the surface to breathe with Solid or Hollow Tines or in late Summer/early Autumn just before the over seeding of turf.
The aim of scarifying is to produce a healthy vertical type growth of desirable grasses, to improve the turf surface and appearance. Top dressing is typically applied in the autumn after scarification and aeration and over seeding when around 8mm or 1/4 of an inch of material is applied and worked into the turf surface.
Lifting, repairing and re-laying edges & replacement of supports. One of the most important aspects of turf is the grass content and density but also as important, the turf edge where it meets a pathway
Our rolling/levelling operations are done to carefully consolidate the surface but not to the detrimental effect of air and water percolation and drainage and definitely not to over compact the soil beneath the grass.
Disease occurs during mid to late Summer and Autumn and can persist into mild winters, especially if the weather is humid and damp. Early and correct diagnosis is very important.
