Our latest overseeding has germinated .
Germination is the easy part , it's getting these new seedlings to establish into an existing competitive Sward that is difficult along with the cutting and foot traffic from golf ! 

The correct balance of nutrition and irrigation is needed to give these new seedlings the best chance of surviving and thriving !

Summer Aeration & Overseeding

The last 6 weeks the weather has been very unsettled with lots and lots of rain , we have been out with both verti drains with 8 mm solid tines to help drainage and feed the soil some air ,apart from the putting green we have finished the big course already . 
After an iron with our True Turf we have also taken the opportunity to overseed the greens with Fescue using our Super Compact Vredo then Drop seeding Brown Top Bent into the Slits left behind.
