Check the frequency of mowing sports pitches

With the rain and cooler temperatures we are now in a period of rapid growth – particularly if autumn fertilization has been applied. Checking the mowing frequency is now vital – removing more than a third of the plant height in a single mowing causes the accumulation of grass cuttings on the surface, gives a shock to the plant and the density of the grass sward suffers.  Frequent mowing encourages tillering and creates a denser and more durable grass cover as we prepare for the high demand of the winter season.
