Our Methods

We use a proven analytical approach to improving playing surfaces. Because everybody likes to see their turf in a pie chart.

At Commonwealth Sports Turf Services, we obsess over the little details of your sports turf so you don’t have to. For instance you have root depth, soil compaction, and the grade in that heavy traffic area. Then you worry about the air and water in the soil and what this rainy summer means for your aeration schedule. You start to wonder if your Bermuda is feeling too “spongy”, if you have too much nitrogen in your application plan, or why water seems to be standing in that one area. You get concerned about the impact aerating has on your greens, the feel of your tee boxes, and what to do to prepare for the hot summer. It goes without saying that you debate how much rest your turf needs after that tournament, if over seeding makes sense this year, and if your turf color means something is wrong or maybe this is how it should look right now? Who knows, right?

We Do.

Verticutting: What Is It And Why Do You Need It?

Vertical cutting devices, called "verticutters" are well known. An example of a verticutting turf device is set forth in U.S. Pat. No. 6,393,814 to Gorey. Verticutting devices have a number of blades connected to a driveshaft. As the driveshaft turns, blades make vertical cuts in the ground, cutting runners in the turf and removing dead thatch and other dead foliage from the turf. When attached to mowers, a verticutter only penetrates the ground at small depths because it is under powered to cut deeper depths.
