JULY 2016

We’ve just had the summer solstice and temperatures are expected to rise this week, so expect to see warmer soil temperatures and harder greens soon. Luckily simple measures can be taken to prevent your greens from becoming sealed and your grass seed from dying. Here’s GreenTek’s top tips to save you time and effort when maintaining your healthy greens.

Stop your greens becoming hard or sealed this summer

sarel

Spike the surface of your greens regularly before they get hard or sealed to allow dew and rain to filter through, leaving you with a good firm surface that drains freely and watered roots. Sarel Rollers are ideal for this, producing thousands of holes across the greens. They are available as Thatch-Away Supa-System Cassettes, or tractor-mounted versions either 5ft wide or the new 18ft wide hydraulically folding model.

Overseed discreetly and your golfers won’t even notice

Now that soil temperatures are rising, give your seed the best chance of germinating with the ultra discreet Dyna-Seeder. Overseeding with your Triple Mower won’t upset your members as they won’t even realise you’re doing it! Dyna-Seeder’s super precise mechanism has a fast spread rate of 2g per square metre.

JUNE 2016

Following a wet spring we’ve had some surprisingly hot weather recently with glorious wall-to-wall sunshine. In the south especially this has resulted in rapid growth on the greens which will now need managing to keep green speeds acceptable. If the hot spell continues the greens will start to dry out, making the need for good aeration crucial before the surface becomes too hard. Northern areas will be seeing a more manageable growth on the greens at this stage, along with the annual seed head problem!

Here’s our advice on how you can cope with these regional variations in growth:

Aerate your greens and keep your roots irrigated

sarel

Spike the surface of your greens to allow dew and rain to filter through, leaving you with an open surface that drains freely. Sarel Rollers, producing thousands of holes across the greens, are available as Thatch-Away Supa-System Cassettes, or tractor-mounted versions either 5ft wide or the new 18ft wide hydraulically folding model.

Control growth and seed heads with the Poa Buster

poa

When the greens become lush with rapid growth and poa starts to seed, it’s crucial that you don’t create slits in the greens for seed heads to fall into. Swap your Verticutter cassettes for the Poa Buster cassettes to help prevent this. Poa Buster cassettes will thin out excess growth and remove and collect loose seed heads, without marking the greens, boxing them off to prevent re-germination. The result – smooth, clean greens where the ball rolls faster and truer. Find out more

Smooth and speed up your greens for competitions

Another great way to give your greens a true surface is with the True Surface Select-A-Vibe roller. These vibrating greens rollers create smoother, faster greens – great for competitions – and are safe and easy to use with your triple mower.
