Sand insertion is our unique process of dramatically improving surface water drainage on sports grounds in winter. Years of built up organic matter (from lawn clippings) in the upper 100mm of the soil profile (commonly called the ‘Mat Layer’) and other factors such as soil type can cause water to sit on the surface making the surface unplayable and vulnerable to excessive wear and tear.
We overcome this problem by placing bands of drainage sand 20mm thick spaced 270mm apart. We find that by making the bands of sand 150mm deep we can create a successful passage for water to flow off the grass surface and drain away through the natural sandy soil below.
Top dressing helps resolve uneven levels in turfed areas and at the right application rate can facilitate the breakdown of thatch .
We have a variety of top dressing and material spreaders including Dakotas, Vicons and our own custom built spreader.
Our custom built spreader can top dress sand without leaving undesirable wheel ruts and with a row of 4 large tyres across the back of the chassis can easily carry and gently spread up to four tonne of sand at a time across a turf surface.
Root Pruning of trees is essential to treat root competition for water supply on ovals and golf courses. During the warmer months where water is scarce dry patches can occur on the edges of grassed areas due to tree roots sucking water down past grass roots. Root Pruning saves water stops root competition.
Our root pruner is able to cut tree roots up to 80mm thick and we are able to prune a golf course in 2 days.
