The City has many sporting reserves offering all year round use, with various clubs using the City’s Ovals and their facilities.
Sports turf surfaces are required to be maintained to appropriate standards such as SAA HB49.2 as recommended by the Sporting Facilities Manual. To achieve this, the City takes a technical data approach using soil and leaf tissue testing to ensure the
correct fertiliser and water is applied.
The City also measures the amount of soil moisture, evaporation and transpiration of turf grass to monitor our watering, as well as measuring thatch and organic fines to guide our renovation programs. By reducing the thatch, water and fertiliser is then
able to efficiently filter through to the soil profile to be taken up by the turf grass roots.
