Verti Draining :Penetrates the soil from 10" to 16" deep and penetrate any pan which may exist.
While the tines are in the ground, they heave the soil, cracking up the pan and relieving any compaction. The lift achieved is uniform, leaving the surface immediately playable. The lift is adjustable and can vary from 0.5" to as much as 2.5".
When Verti-Draining is carried out, shallow rooting grasses can be transformed into plants with 8" and 10" roots in as little as four weeks.
Over Seeding : During the playing season sports ground are often without grass on those parts of the pitch or area where most of the activity takes place.
Cill Dara Sportsfield Services can overcome the problem by using the Blec disc seeder which enables seed to be stitched into the ground while causing minimal disturbance to the existing grasses.
The discs make a slit in the ground at 5 cm spacings. The seed is placed in the slits and in turn, closed in by the action of the rear roller.
This is a very successful technique with proven results. By placing seed precisely where it is required, under controlled conditions, great saving in seed and time can result.
Sanding : Sports grounds and golf courses greatly benefit from sand spreading.
