There are always areas of well used ground that require re-seeding. This often includes gateways, around feeding areas, shelters or any patches of poached ground damaged by the constant trampling of horses, livestock or machinery in wet conditions.
For these areas we recommend to repair them in Spring time and as soon as conditions allow, by harrowing, over and rolling until level and consolidated. We then lightly harrow again whilst distributing grass seed evenly and precisely from our modern variable rate seed applicator.
We calibrate the seeder and adjust the seed rate depending on the situation. The machine also varies the seed rate to accommodate for the speed travelled using wheel mounted sensors and an in cab control box. For positive germination this is then followed by a pass with a Cambridge or flat roller.
For bare ground which has yet to be sown we can offer an over-seeding service in conjunction with creating a suitable seedbed. A variety of specialist grass and wild flower seeds are available at competitive rates. The type of seed mix should be tailored to the intended use. In conjunction with our agronomist and seed suppliers, advice is available to help you make the right choice.
Re-seeding and over-seeding can be performed when grass is growing and the soil is warm enough to allow the seed to germinate. Depending on weather conditions this is typically from late March through to late September but taking care to avoid drought periods which typically occur during the peak summer months.
