Gang, Rotary & Triple Mowing
Mowing can be scheduled twice weekly, weekly, every 10 days or fortnightly.
Summer fertiliser feeds the leaf of the grass and improves its appearance – Winter fertiliser feeds the roots of grass and improves strength and durability
Selective weed spraying removes weeds in a grass sward – Total weed spraying kills all grass and weeds on hard areas.
Verti-Draining relieves compaction in grass areas down to 300mm……It can be used to create holes, which can be dressed with other material i.e. sand, to improve the soil structure – best carried out at the beginning of the winter and at intervals throughout the winter if possible.
Drilled seeding can radically improve the reliability of overseeding.
Rolling is available, but should only be used in exceptional circumstances and then only in conjunction with aerating – we spend much of our time opening up the ground why should we compact it?
Aerating consists of slitting the turf to allow oxygen, water and nutrients to penetrate to the roots of the grass sward.
The setting out and remarking of summer and winter sports using traditional contact markers or modern spray systems. Soon to come is GPS marking using satellite technology.
Sports marking using the latest GPS technology, the white box picks up satellite signals and controls the marking without any lines being laid. Below shows the before and after of a tennis court.

What People Say
“The Old Northamptonians Association have been delighted with the work provided by R&G who have maintained our multi sports grounds of 16 acres over the past two years. They have worked very hard with us to maintain our grounds in superb condition with an affordable budget.
They take enormous pride in their work and manage the extensive usage of the site very effectively utilising an array of modern machinery. This includes the challenge of converting the grounds from winter to summer sports provision and vice versa annually. We have regular contact and meetings with them and communication is a strength of their organisation We would have no hesitation in recommending R&G as an excellent contractor.”
