In the tough competition of golf courses, a perfect lawn and careful treatment of nature are increasingly decisive for their existence. But only those who know the condition of their turf layers (soils) can present good playing areas in the long term.

Dense, but still enough oxygen for the roots?

Soccer playing fields are subjected to constant high stress when played on. Various other factors influence the quality of the turf: the architecture of the stadium, climate, light, shade, ventilation and maintenance to name a few.

My advice is based on a particular sustainable maintenance strategy, which means, that quality improvements and financial savings can be made in all areas of greenkeeping.

This is why preserving and maintaining the pitch is always one of the greenkeeper's most constant and demanding challenges:

  • Density
  • Shear strength
  • Smothness
  • Water permeability of the rootzone
  • Favorable growth conditions
  • Cutting quality (Cylinder mower)

Lawn – more than just a good feeling

The issue of lawns is as complex as it is diverse. Having a really healthy and beautiful lawn is not achieved in the long term by mowing alone.

Soil composition, nutrient supply, location, lawn type or care all play a significant role.

For the ordinary amateur gardener, it can be hard to see the relationships between all of these factors.

Professional lawn consulting can save you unnecessary expense, as it prevents excessive or incorrect care such as using too much fertilis.
