Bourne CC - Groundcare Diary April

Whilst we are in ‘lockdown’ we are following the Bourne CC Groundcare team through the season as their ground maintenance programme progresses throughout the Spring and Summer.

We caught up with them earlier in the week......


1 Brush square with drag brush across the direction of play [removal of dew moisture]

2 Following drying out of the grass and using the SISIS Autorake, scarify in the direction of play, with blades set off the surface. Cover same breed twice. [very slow walking pace to allow the machine to do its work] Identification of each individual strip from the task.

3 Cut each strip, 20mm grass length in direction of play [emphasise the strip identification] with mower

4 Brush up each strip in direction of play using SISIS power brush


Hoping for some much-needed rain this week and the next task will be to verticut / horizontal cut across the square, hopefully this will be carried out towards the end of the week, following the much-needed rain!
