Scrumming demands well rooted stand of ryegrass to 50 to 75mm height. Traction in wet conditions is vital and with rugby played in the wet winter months, good surface drainage is a pre-requisite. To ensure a good surface is ready and persists through the season, a sound and well balanced maintenance programme must be in place.
As a rugby pitch consultant I am fully aware of the need for a well-drained and firm playing surface with a vigorous stand of predominantly ryegrass. In addition to advising on the minimum maintenance procedures I provide the service of designing, specifying and over-seeing construction through to satisfactory establishment.
