The fastest way to a healthy and green lawn

Lawn care is a complex programme of measures and, in addition to mowing, also includes fertilisation, irrigation and mechanical scarification and soil cultivation such as scarifying and aeration. Regular reseeding is also an essential part of professional lawn management and prevents degeneration of the turf. Worn-out areas in the lawn or old, sparse and patchy swards can be effectively regenerated by a suitable reseeding measure.

The aim of reseeding is therefore to quickly re-establish a scar closure and a vital rejuvenation of the lawns. In principle, reseeding can be carried out during the entire vegetation period from April/May, whereby sufficient watering must be ensured. The most favourable month for reseeding is September. The existing area should first be mown to approx. 2 to 2.5 cm and the cuttings collected. In case of heavy moss and felt formation, scarify crosswise and diagonally. Only then can the actual reseeding take place. An essential factor for success is optimal contact of the seed with the soil. A lawn reseeding is even more efficient if a moderate and continuous supply of nutrients is added to the seed at the same time. This serves to quickly replenish the energy store after germination and stimulate the growth of the young grass plant.

Six steps in one operation - innovative reseeding technology today!

  1. Open floor The cutterhead, which is mounted at the front of the machine, cuts grooves 10 to 15 mm deep into the turf soil, creating the seedbed for the grass seed.

  2. Removing the milled material The blades rotate against the direction of travel and throw the soil backwards in a large arc so that it does not immediately cover the grooves again.

  3. Precision seeding A compact and technically unique seed distribution system feeds the seed under the throwing current of the milled-out material and precisely disperses it into the cut grooves via small channels.

  4. Seed and fertiliser distribution A small wind generator blows air through the seed dispersal hoppers. This makes the seed fall faster and land exactly in the seedbed. The slow-release fertiliser applied simultaneously in one operation promotes safe stand development.

  5. Rollers The driven rubber roller is located directly behind the spreading zone and presses the seedbed, creating good contact between the soil and the seed.

  6. Covering the seed The stream of soil carried away (see step 2) only now falls down on the seeded area behind the roller. This soil covers the seedbed after it is already sealed and provides a protective layer on the seed, increasing the chances of growth.
