turf advice

Assess your current situation
Do you want to improve the quality of your turf? Do you want to stimulate your grass growth? Before thinking about grass growth solutions, it is important to clarify the starting situation. How is the grass currently being maintained? How do you feed your grass? Are you already using data to manage your turf maintenance?

First of all, it is important to assess your starting situation. Based on this, we make an inventory of which aspects of grass maintenance we can support you with. Based on this, we draw up a complete grass maintenance advice.

Conditions for good grass growth

To achieve good grass growth, five fundamental ingredients are needed:
Light
Temperature
Water
Co2
Nutrition / fertilisation
Should there be a deficiency in any of these ingredients, it will hinder the growth and recovery of grass.
It is essential to supplement these factors as needed to ensure that the ideal conditions for robust grass growth are met. Soil temperature and moisture can be attained through field heating and irrigation. Meanwhile, the recommended Stogger Booster grow lights can help achieve the required lightlevels necessary for optimal grass growth and recovery. The natural light level can be compared to the recommended grass lighting solution to ensure it meets the required light levels for optimal turf growth and recovery.

Advice as a basis for cost efficiency

Energy efficiency
To keep running costs low, it is essential to provide the right amount of light. If too little light is provided, grass growth will not be optimal. If too much light is provided, then energy is wasted. This can quickly significantly increase operating costs, by thousands of euro's unnecessarily. Effective control and management of this aspect guarantees minimized cost and enhanced efficiency.
Light simulation
One of the cornerstones of any turf advice is the light simulation, in which the possible shadow formation as a result of stands or roofs, for example, can negatively influence grass growth. In these places the amount of supplemental light needed to stimulate grass growth is much greater.
A light simulation is a tool to provide insight into the amount of light received at parts of the turf pitch.

Direct sunlight

Providing more light to the grass is not always stimulating grass growth. Direct sunlight can also be harmful to grass growth.

Depending on the grass species, the grass experiences stress from direct sunlight in combination with high temperatures. Based on the light simulation and the climate, additional measures can be recommended.

Summary

Your turf pitch needs multiple ingredients to create grass growth. If there is an imbalance, it will not be possible to achieve an efficient growth. In addition, the costs will increase disproportionately due to an imbalance.

Before advising and implementing a grass growth solution, it is therefore important to start with sound advice to clarify the starting situation. Please contact us to request a free advice.
