No-Till Renovation vs. Conventional Reconstruction
No-till TifEagle can save you up to 75% of the cost of conventional greens reconstruction. Complete rebuild-costs range from $1.50 to $4.00 per sq. ft. versus $.45 to $.80 per sq. ft. for no-till. six to eight weeks is normal turnaround for no-till versus 10 to 18 weeks for a complete rebuild. Reduced down time greatly reduces lost revenue. Site prep can be done with your own crews and equipment to fit your own schedule. Original putting surface grades and contours are maintained. Healthy mature seedbed is retained and serves as base for new putting surface. You get a speeding conversion from poor quality greens to TifEagle, the ultimate ultradwarf putting surface.
Are Your Greens Good No-Till Candidates?
Not all older greens are good candidates for no-till. Serious disease, pest, drainage and soil profile problems may require conventional reconstruction. Heavy thatch build-up resulting in layering can only be solved with a complete rebuild. Older greens may also require significant design changes to increase cupping areas. We provide on-site inspections and a green-by-green analysis with special emphasis on how surface drainage, percolation rates and contour breaks affect current playing conditions. We take multiple samples from all greens and collars to identify potential problems including diseases, nematodes, organic matter build-up and poor soil profiles (layering).
Advantages of Certified TifEagle Bermudagrass
TifEagle was bred to handle the aggressive management practices necessary to deliver superior speed, consistency, and overall playability. Compared to other bermudagrass varieties, TifEagle recovers more quickly from injury and is extremely drought tolerant and disease resistant. TifEagle exhibits superior color retention and a more robust recovery under cool conditions. With an appropriate schedule of topdressing and light verticutting, TifEagle provides an excellent seedbed for poa trivialis/bentgrass blends. TifEagle also produces less thatch than other ultradwarfs. Frequent brushing, grooming, and light top dressings will reduce the need to verticut to control thatch buildup.
