September 2019 our Brand New Turf Harvester arrived, making the process faster and easier for everyone. Cutting time is 4x faster, and laying time is 30% faster, while the quality is better and consistent.
There’s one question people frequently ask about our turf harvesting, so we thought we’d explain for everyone!
"Does turf harvesting slowly lower the level of the turf farm?"
It’s fairly simple. When mowing our 15ha of lawn, we mulch it back into the surface. Annually we mow 3-4 metres of grass, each metre composts decomposes down to 10mm of topsoil back into the surface, totalling 30-40mm. This balances out with the approx. 25mm of soil we take off when harvesting.
So, while we are taking topsoil off when we harvest, our turf farm is not sinking each time, but is in fact coming up by 5-15mm each year.
