Thringstone Bowls Club Green Renovation

October 2011

Fineturf have just completed the renovation of the Bowling Green for Thringstone Bowls Club. Following this season the club decided the bowling green was in need of a full renovation to remove surface irregularities and improve the growing medium and drainage.

The existing surface was removed by first stripping the turf and following this, the area was cultivated using a Blecavator prior to being precision laser graded. 40 tons of sports sand was then spread onto the bowling green in two separate 20 ton layers. Each layer of the sports sand was then ameliorated into the existing surface using the Blecavator.

The bowling green was precision laser levelled for a second time prior to final ground preparation using hand rakes. A Greentec 6:5:18 fertiliser from Headland Amenity was applied and the surface sown with Limagrain MM10 Grass Seed, an excellent bowling green fescue / bent mixture.
