Thatch removal


Over time, if end of season work has not been carried out consistently to a high standard and the square has not been constantly maintained throughout the season then thatch can build up in the top layer of the surface and seriously effect the quality and structure of your pitches. We will take a soil sample to determine what solution to apply to your square.

One solution is to fraise mow the square. This process removes the top layer  of grass in order to take out the thatch, before end of season work is carried out. The pictures below show the work we carried out on the Broomfield CC square in 2018 to remove half an inch of thatch and also saddled ends that had built up over the years.
