Project: Ready Lawn
Client: Ready Lawn
Ready Lawn were applying for a water right renewal and as part of this were required by Environment Waikato to put in place a Nutrient Management Plan for the Turf Farm operation at Mangatawhiri.
A nutrient management plan to meet the environment Waikato requirements was prepared for the Ready Lawn Turf Farm. This involved soil testing and analysis of fertiliser practices plus analysis of all relevant site characteristics. This included the specific requirements of the different grasses being grown, the land contours, adjacent water ways, drainage patterns, soil type, irrigation practices and normal turf production regimes.
The resulting “Nutrient Management Plan” took all of these variables into account and ensured that the fertiliser practices implemented complied with all regulatory requirements. In addition the Plan ensured that the most cost effective practices for the Turf Farm were implemented.
