Overseeding is the process of implanting grass seed just under the surface of the ground and sealing the holes to ensure the seed germinates and grows rapidly. Overseeding replenishes worn, high-use areas of playing surfaces such as goalmouths and tees by introducing new cultivars into the sward.
A disc seeder first creates slits which the seed is then dropped into, with the rear roller then closing these slits. Seeding is carried out in two to three different directions across the surface to give an even coverage; resulting in a thick, strong turf.
Chappelow Sports Turf operates a variety of overseeding machinery allowing us to cater for a variety of sports, clubs and facilities.
