BOWLING GREEN RENOVATION

3-5 June 2020

The bowling green has undertaken a renovation primarily to increase the water infiltration capacity and relieve compaction issues as a result from constant and intense foot traffic.

The procedure is similar to that of a turf green, only on a reduced scale to minimise impact and avoid any damage to the structure of the synthetic grass.

A delegate from the company contracted to install the green has visited the site recently for a team brief and a comprehensive programme was discussed and actioned by the maintenance staff.

The procedures carried out are in accordance with manufacturers recommendations and maintenance guidelines and are as follows:
 
Dethatching - mowing the green with a dethatching reel at bench height to lightly disturb the surface and increase the water infiltration capacity.
 
Brushing
- mowing the green with a brush implement to remove debris in the synthetic pile and the break down the compacted sand layer.

Sand Dusting
- the application of Kiln dried sand at a light rate to increase performance and re-establish surface levels. Sand also assists with Algae breakdown.
 
Irrigation - applied to integrate sand into the synthetic pile and reduce tailing.
 
Rinks Remarked
- New rinks running East/West have been marked to distribute wear. Existing rinks have been remarked.
