MINIMAL input - MAXIMUM effect for seedling development

Objectives
• 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

Evaluation

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!!
