No-till installation can be a good method for certain golf grass courses.


3 Factors That Show Your Golf Course May Be Suitable for No-Till Installation Golf Grass

No-till installation is a way of planting grass that does not disrupt the natural soil composition with tilling methods. By doing so, this kind of tilling allows the soil to retain its full range of organic matter and build up nutrients.

The no-till method is becoming more popular as conservation-mindedness becomes more prevalent across all industries. To find out if your golf course is an ideal candidate for no-till installation, see if the following conditions match your course space:

1. The Need to Weed. Tilling is a method commonly used to remove weeds – if your golf course soil has weeds or other parasitic presences, it may need to be tilled and therefore may not be an ideal candidate for this type of grass installation.

2. Soil Health. The main virtue of no-till installation methods is that they allow soil to retain its natural organic composition. The soil reaches peak health in a more organic way. If your course field has poor quality soil, no-till installation isn’t worth the effort, as it may not support the grass you plant.

3. Drainage. Because of the organic buildup, no-till landscapes need above average drainage to keep from flooding initially. Especially hilly courses would be ideal for no-till installation.
