A ‘lightning’ fast turnaround at Campbelltown

No sooner had the NRL season wrapped up, and GHG were prepping the Campbelltown Stadium again – this time for the World’s Fastest Man – Usain Bolt. The sprinter-turned-soccer player appeared for the Central Coast Mariners in an A-League pre-season match on Friday, October 12.

Grounds Manager Mick Sutton did a tremendous job transforming the well-used footy field into a carpet-like surface – in record time! “A flat and even pitch is critical for any top match” said a somewhat relieved Sutton. After the match the ground (and Mick) received plenty of praise from both teams.

Sydney’s iconic green spaces ‘GET A MAKEOVER’

When the City of Sydney needed its key parks and gardens looking their absolute best for Spring, who did they call? GHG – the turf experts.

During September and October, GHG have renovated and reinvigorated 15 green spaces around the CBD and surrounding suburbs utilising our newest specialised plant – the Field-Top-Maker (FTM).

“Service times have been halved and outcomes improved – yet again” announced MD Geoff Green proudly. “Forget about Gillette and Schick… for a first class shave you can’t beat our new FTM”.

Introducing GHG’s super-effective ‘FIELD-TOP-MAKER’

Designed for maximum efficiency for sports turf applications like football & rugby pitches, GHG’s newest fleet addition – the Fieldtopmaker, makes light work of removing unwanted surface matter or removing the entire surface to a depth of 50mm.

Many of GHG’s customers (particularly golf courses) will benefit from the Universe Rotor – one of the FTM’s easily fitted attachments. The heavy-duty scarifier de-thatches tees and fairways and eliminates 4-5 times verticutting. No need to thin out, sweep, blow and mow in 3-4 directions before oversowing….  FTM Universe Rotor will do all of that in one pass!
