GAA: 'Goal Mouth Longevity'Pot Planting of Grass Seed. Pot Planting of Grass seed
All levels of grounds keeping
MINIMAL input - MAXIMUM effect for seedling development
• Create small pots in the surface approximately 15mm deep.
• This will allow the seed to have 100% contact with the soil.
• Provides an ideal seedbed for grass to establish and be protected as the seed germinates and grows into a seedling
This is a process that needs to be undertaken after EVERY MATCH and it is up to the GROUNDSKEEPER to determine how much aeration and SEED is needed. It will become apparent after several weeks of this process the goal mouth will become tightly populated with HIGH QUALITY SPORTS GRADE GRASS and will stand up to the pressures of modern sport!!
INVEST IN YOUR SURFACE!!
