A FEW WORDS ABOUT US
Since April 2003 Marathon Turf Company has established a modern turf nursery
producing very high quality lawn turf ROLAWN has since become the brand of
choice for many professional landscapers.
THE TURF NURSERY
All our ROLAWN is grown on premium quality soils at our farm. These free draining sandy loam soils are as good as it gets for turf production. The soil is laboratory tested prior to each crop so that nutrient levels can be balanced. This maximises growing efficiency and minimises environmental impact.
We select seed from the best grass varieties which possess the characteristics we demand in our turf. Independent laboratory testing is carried out on each seed line prior to acceptance to ensure it meets criteria for the following:-
Seed Purity, Germination and high Endophyte
We take 12 months to produce a crop of ROLAWN lawn turf. Throughout this process we monitor weed and pest levels and treat them at the appropriate time. We feed the crop each month with the correct nutrients for its stage of growth.
Once established, the crop is mown frequently (approx. 80 times) to promote strong, close growth. The final mowing is carried out within 48 hours of harvest using precision mowers to give a clean leaf cut.
At ROLAWN most production processes are carried out using GPS control to optimise efficiency and minimise any environmental impact.
We set ourselves a benchmark for quality. In the absence of a New Zealand standard we adopted the UK Turf Growers Association (TGA) quality standards www.turfgrass.co.uk/tga-quality-standards-for-cultivated-turf/. TGA standards cover these key indicators ...
We pride ourselves that when you buy ROLAWN you can be confident that we more than achieve these standards.
