Aerification is a mechanical process used to cultivate the soil without destruction of the turf. Country Green Turf Farms has the right core aerator for your large project. Core aerating can help make your lawn healthier and reduce maintenance requirements through these means:
- Improved air exchange between soil and atmosphere
- Enhanced soil water uptake
- Improved fertilizer use and uptake
- Reduced water runoff and puddling
- Stronger turf roots
- Reduced soil compaction
- Improved turf resiliency
- Enhanced thatch breakdown
Slice seeding is an excellent way to overseed an existing sports field or large open space area. Slice seeding addresses many lawn problems quickly, easily and with very little mess. When lawn renovation is needed, slice seeding actually plants new seed into the soil without stripping the existing sod or tilling the entire surface.
Top dressing is an essential part of field and park renovation. After core aerating, slice seeding and fertilizing, top dressing is the last step in getting the results you are looking for in your park or field. It works by increasing the average particle size in the soil. Larger more irregular particles in the soil, creates more airspace between the particles. Top dressing can improve drainage, allow soil to better exchange gases with the atmosphere, and promote the development of soil microflora and microfauna.
FERTILIZER & LIME
A mechanical means of applying fertilizer and lime in large open areas with precise 100% coverage. Applicable for golf courses, sports fields, parks, schools, and other large open areas. No more hand-fertilizing and liming. No bags to clean up.
SUN MIXTURE – great for overseeding; best choice for most lawns; excellent fine bladed mix for full sun areas.
- 100% Perennial Ryegrass
- Seed rate: 6-8 lbs per 1000 sq. ft
FERTILIZER SELECTION & RATE
Fertilizer selection and application rates will vary upon soil test requirements.
DOLOPRIL – PELLETED LIME – Quick acting pelleted Dolomite Lime, supplies both Calcium and Magnesium-Carbonate. Easy to apply with a broadcast spreader. Apply in early spring or late fall to establish turf; or incorporate into soil when preparing for new sod or seed.
Application rates will vary upon soil test requirements.
Country Green Turf Farms is also equipped with a soil renovator. This machine does the work of several machines in a single pass. It creates a seedbed by cultivating, burying stones, clods, grass and debris of many existing surfaces. Used mainly on sports fields, golf fairways, and green spaces.
