Specifically designed for the sports industry
It’s tried, and it’s tested. This formula has been unrolled onto prestigious greens up and down the country. Tournament Greens is grown on free-draining, sandy loam soil. A dense bent/fescue sward with very high purity and low thatch content. It can also be supplied washed. The washing process will avoid contamination of high specification rootzones and there will be no layering to impede the root development or water percolation. If you need your turf to root quickly, this is the solution as the roots quickly search to seek water and nutrients. A further advantage will be a greater biomass of roots. Finally, establishment time is fast, potentially giving a playable surface between 3 to 5 weeks dependent on temperature. Contact us for essential guidelines on managing washed turf. Its outstanding properties are hard wearing with quick repair and recovery. Mowing height at harvest is between 6–8mm.
LT2 Low Maintenance Fine Turf
On the golf course LT2 provides an environmentally sustainable solution. This low maintenance turf has a fine appearance, it requires reduced irrigation, fertiliser and fungicide inputs and has a greatly reduced mowing regime. With the added benefit of mowing short as low as 5mm or left unmown up to 600mm. This adaptable turf is ideally suited to many areas on the golf course which include greens, surrounds and fairways. Bunker surrounds which are exposed to draught, sand and difficult banks where frequent mowing is a challenge, will also be good choices to place LT2 low maintenance. Low fertiliser inputs are required due to excellent disease resistance to red thread, fusarium and dollar spot. It can be treated extensively with only one to two cuts per year or intensively as a low input fine grass with a greatly reduced mowing regime.
A great choice when aesthetics and quick re-growth are equally important and when a rye-based turf is not suitable for the course. LT4 is a popular choice with greenkeepers. It’s a quality mixture of smooth stalked meadow grass and 70% fescues, combines appearance with hard wearing properties and fast recovery. The smooth stalk runs consistently through the turf and the quick regrowth from rhizomes make it an excellent alternative to 100% fescue on wear areas. LT4 has been successfully used on tees and fairways on all types of golf courses across the nation.
The combination of wear tolerant ryegrasses and dense smooth stalked meadow grass provides outstanding wear and recovery. LT5 is suitable for heavy clay areas and will perform equally well on free-draining sandy soils. Successfully used on tees including par 3s and municipal courses where extreme wear and heavy footfall can be challenging. LT5 is a dense hardwearing mixture with quick repair and recovery. For a premium alternative to LT5 try upgrading to LT8 Creeping Rye for sports.
LT6 is designed to withstand the wear and tear inflicted on sports pitches. Football pitches, rugby pitches, training grounds, racecourses, polo grounds and school pitches. A turf with ryegrass as the main constituent yet with a strong presence of smooth stalk meadow grass which is so valuable for wear and recovery. LT6 sport turf can be supplied as a standard turf, washed turf or thick turf.
The response we are getting from this new product is complimentary to say the least. Its deep emerald green appearance is so appealing and it’s extremely hardwearing with rapid repair qualities. The fine appearance has been well received on the golf course where it has been used successfully on pathways, heavy wear areas and more recently it has been trialled on tees. During trials this turf has proven to be very drought tolerant and, even through very warm weather, retains its dense quality and deep green colour Creeping Rye for Sports is suitable for football goal mouths, run lines and any sporting area where traditionally wear has been a challenge. When combined with our hybrid range the results have been outstanding.

Lokturf is a mature turf for instant use, 40mm thick, grown by seeding hard-wearing cultivars of perennial ryegrass and smooth stalked meadow grass into Loksand, and polypropylene fibre reinforced rootzone.
All grades of turf can be supplied as a mature turf washed, using a highly specialised machine to remove all soil particles leaving a turf held together entirely by its root system. Washed turf is ideal for new greens surfaces constructed with a high specification sand profile, we have also used washed turf in many areas where time for establishment is of the essence. Some key features include: Avoids contamination of high specification rootzones with fine turf soil particles. Avoids creation of a layer which impedes root development and water percolation. Roots faster as it seeks water and nutrients. Produces a greater biomass of roots. Faster establishment time 3 to 5 weeks dependent on temperature
