Relief Mowing

Our capabilities here start with relief mowing, to cover a period when your own equipment is broken down. We have a wide variety of grass cutting equipment from small to quite large, therefore are equipped to cover most requirements.

Aeration

For frequently used large turf areas, we have deep aerating/spiking equipment to relieve surface compaction and improve soil aeration and water percolation. Frequently, surface drainage issues can be significantly improved by deep spiking. This allows water through compacted or smeared surface soil layers to more open structured deeper soils and the drains.

Nutrition/Fertilization

For best performance, disease resistance, wear tolerance and improved appearance, turf areas need regular nutrition. We offer a fertilizer application service. We are equipped to cover small areas with a pedestrian operated fertilizer to entire school sports complexes or equestrian holdings with tractor mounded spreading equipment. For the most specialised needs where extra trace elements or non-standard nutrients are required, specialist turf feeds can be applied through any of our spraying equipment too.

Turf recovery /Rejuvenation /Recultivation

In some cases, turf is too far gone to recover just by applying nutrition and de compacting the surface. In these instances, we can help with our Charterhouse overseeder- a disc based direct drilling system where the new seeds are delivered into the soil through the existing turf for minimal disruption to the use of your turf area.

In worst case scenarios, often in instances of failed drainage or flooding, resulting in surface damage, we can fully recultivate and reseed your area with top performing grass cultivars from Germinal Seeds or DLF Trifolium.

Pesticide Application

We have a pesticide application service, for weed and disease management on your turf areas. Our operators are NPTC certified in PA1, PA2 and PA6A operations. We will do small spraying tasks e.g. around club houses etc with knapsack sprayers all the way up to a full golf complex with our Hardi, 8m hydraulic sprayer, mounted on a low ground pressure, 4×4, all terrain utility chassis. This machine is tested annually to conform to the current ‘sustainable use’ of pesticide regulations.

In worst case scenarios, often in instances of failed drainage or flooding, resulting in surface damage, we can fully recultivate and reseed your area with top performing grass cultivars from Germinal Seeds or DLF Trifolium.
