10 Tips to Keep Your Bowling Green Looking & Playing Great in 2017

Keeping your bowling green in great condition throughout the season is a big challenge and takes a lot of knowledge and effort to get the best results.

Bowling clubs don’t always have a full-time greenkeeper working on their bowling green, however, members and visitors still expect a great playing surface throughout the season.

10 Tips To Keep Your Green Looking Great

  1. Scarify to remove dead and dying material and let in air to stimulate growth
  2. Aeration is essential to grass health to get air and water to the roots
  3. Mowing your green regularly during the summer months
  4. Mowing at an increased height during the winter whenever weather permits
  5. Monitor for any signs of disease, infection or general deterioration
  6. Prepare for and deal with the impact of inclement weather, including flooding
  7. Fertiliser supplies nutrients to the grass plants to help them grow healthily
  8. Top Dressing in the Autumn to finish off the Autumn renovation
  9. Apply quality grass seed after aerating and before top dressing
  10. Keep your green well watered in dry weather, utilising an irrigation system.
