Professional Turf Care

◯ Bowling Greens ◯ Golf Courses ◯ Football Pitches ◯ Rugby pitches ◯ Croquet lawnss

Expert Grass Care

Pro-Turfcare carry out maintenance contracts and one off specialist work all over Scotland. We are based in central Scotland which is ideally located to look after contracts in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Ayrshire, Lanarkshire, Dumfries and Galloway, The Scottish Borders and Fife. The work consists of many yearly bowling green maintenance contracts, football pitch renovations and in season maintenance work, rugby pitch and croquet lawn work and specialist golf course work. We invest heavily in our machinery making sure we have the latest in technology so we can provide the best service to our customers.
Our machinery includes , Air 2g2, Toro Hydroject, Toro Procore, Verti-Drain, Vredo Disc Seeder to name a few. Materials in our industry are always changing with chemicals over the last few year being removed from the market, with more to come and many new products being released so we make sure to spend time to ensure we are choosing the best products to give our customers the highest possible results.
We take great pride in the work we carry out, it is our best form of advertisement as a company so you can be assured it will be carried out to the highest standard possible to meet and exceed our customer expectations.

Our Equipment

The Air 2G2 uses three probes to laterally inject pressurized air up to 12 inches beneath the surface of the soil to fracture the compacted layers that form as a result of foot traffic, mechanical traffic and nature’s daily wear and tear. These laterally injected air blasts loosen up compacted soil immediately, but without any disruption to the surface of the turf or to the roots below.

With frequent use, the Air 2G2 creates surfaces that are healthy, firm and ready for play immediately after treatment. Air is everything to anything that lives, and for your soil, the Air 2G2 is a breath of fresh air.

THE AIR2G2 324 HELPS WITH:

  • Compaction Relief: Fractures hardpan layers without disruption to roots or playing surfaces
  • Porosity Increased: Lateral air injections increase pore space, promote faster drainage and root development
  • Respiration Enhanced: Forces oxygen in and pushes CO2 and other anaerobic gases out for root zone gas exchange

LONGTERM BENEFITS OF AIR2G2 324:

  • Immediately relieves soil compaction
  • No downtime or turf disruption—lawns, sports fields and golf courses are ready to use right after treatment
  • No post-application cleanup necessary!
  • Instantly breaks through compacted soil, brings air to suffocating roots
  • Quickly improves water drainage
  • Encourages deeper root growth
The benefits from carrying out aeration?

  • Improves soil surface drainage (water infiltration)
    Helps to increase soil temperatures
  • Increases soil pore space – allows gaseous exchanges in the soil (oxygen in, carbon dioxide out) that improves root growth and development
  • Aids integration of topdressings into the soil profile
  • Aids the breakdown of thatch/organic matter
  • Promotes better surface levels that will increase ball roll /speed
  • Aids surface firmness/dryness, thereby increasing ball bounce and surface grip
One of the challenges faced by the turf care professional is the battle against compaction. We hear so much these days about compaction and its associated problems that it is important for our users to understand precisely what is meant by compaction, how it affects our turf and what can be done to alleviate it. First of all let us identify the problem. Plants have certain basic requirements if they are to thrive; food, water, warmth and light are all obvious and readily spring to mind. In addition to this they require the right growing medium. This is usually described as rootzone; the rootzone should be open and contain a high proportion of air as healthy plants require oxygen within the root zone. These air gaps and pockets provide the pathways through which both water and air can easily move around and be stored. In addition this assists both drainage and irrigation. It is also through these cavities that the plant develops and extends its root system.

Compaction exists within the soil when it has been forced together; causing the air gaps and pockets to close. When compaction develops, the micro-environment within the soil begins to go into decline causing anaerobic conditions to develop within the soil.

The verti-drain going down depths of 10 inches helps to relieve all the issues stated above leading to vastly improved drier, firmer, faster surfaces.

The advantages of the HydroJect 3000 extend beyond those of traditional core aeration. High velocity water injection more deeply penetrates (an average of 4″ to 8″, or beyond 20″ with additional shots) and laterally fractures soil layers. This deeper and adjacent penetration advances root growth and improves water uptake which in turn gives you a more stress tolerant turf and a more uniform appearance.

With HydroJect there’s virtually no disturbance of the turfs surface. Because there’s less risk of injury to the plant and root, there’s no need to wait for prime soil or weather conditions. Aerate your greens and other turf areas when they need it most; under a hot stressful summer sun or just before tournament play. HydroJect allows you to precisely manage your turf.

Overseeding is important in keeping a lawn healthy. Young grasses will keep their colour better and will be strong enough to fight off weeds and moss. Every 3,5 centimeters the Turf-Seed makes a small slit into the turf, discarding the seed. The Turf-Fix’s tires then close the slit through pressure, enabling a good contact between seed and soil, making the seed germinate and take root fast.

  • Double V-shaped discs which make a small cut in the soil.
  • Seed is placed in between the discs.
  • The slit is closed by the compaction roller.
  • Optimal situation for germination: The seed is in contact with the soil and gets the optimum amount of light and air.
    The seed is protected against weather influences such as frost and birds.

Since taking over the maintenance of our pitch at New Dundas Park the transformation has been fantastic. Pro-Turfcare are reliable and very professional in what they do and never let you down Billy, Martin & Robbie are doing a great job for Bonnyrigg Rose. I would 100% recommend them to any club.

Charlie Kirkwood, Chairman, Bonnyrigg Rose

Troon Portland B.C was one of the worst bowling green about with runs all over every rink diseased and very very heavy, season 2015 was an unbelievable change regarding speed of the green and the draws on all the rinks, they have transformed our green into one of the best around now and I have also been told this by other bowlers from other clubs. Would certainly highly recommend Pro- Turfcare to any other clubs that are having problems with there outdoor green, I now look forward to my outdoor season where I know I will be playing on a fantastic green which brings more enjoyment when I play.

Paul Foster MBE, Troon Portland B.C

Billy and Martin and more recently Robbie have been involved at our greens at Girdle Toll B.C for over 15 years. During this time their Proffesionalism has been outstanding. They really care about doing a good job and are ever ready to respond to any unexpected events (mower malfunction, damage to green etc) often journeying many miles at the drop of a hat.

Eddie McColm, Green Baillie, Girdle Toll B.C
