A winter sports renovation mix suitable for overseeding most worn sports fields and cricket outfields. This mixture will not only establish quickly but will leave a dense hard wearing sward that will recover well after play.
This mix is very popular with local authorities that require a balance of quality and value in the same mix.
At the end of the Winter sports season, there may be as little as eight weeks to get pitches renovated and back into tip‐top condition for the autumn fixtures. Key to the success of the renovation is not wasting time; make sure that you have seed and top dressing in stock.
Winter Sports Renovation Mix/ Summer Sports Mix/ Cricket Outfield Mix
For renovating pitches – a renovation programme should definitely include overseeding. For a stretched budget – overseed the most worn areas.
After a dry spring, restricting water encourages the seedlings to root down through the surface in search of moisture and nutrients. An early fertiliser (e.g. Phoenix Outfield No. 3) application can get seeds off to a good start – this ensures effective nutrient uptake and thus strong establishment.
Whatever the financial constraints, a cut in seed rates is really just wasting money, far better to assess the pitch areas that really need overseeding and treat them with 20‐25g/sqm for stronger establishment and more value for money.
