Reseeding and Planting:
Spring is a great time to reseed or plant a new section of lawn. You want to mow as the grass grows but don’t want to upset the dirt and fertilizer. You also don’t want the rotary mower action of sucking up dirt and seeds.
Brill Razorcut Mowers Best:
We have found the Brill Razorcut Reel Mowers are the best mower to use on newly seeded lawns and first few cuts. Because of their light weight, the Brill Razorcut does little damage to the ground. You can push them over the newly seeded or planted areas and the ground is not harmed. If you mow using the Brill Razorcut 38 or 33 without the Grass Catcher, the grass clippings will help fertilize the area and even hide the seeds from the birds.

The Walkover Sprayer: The Greenkeeper Walkover Sprayer is a wonderful machine hand made in the UK. As you push the sprayer the wheels drive a pump which sprays. The sprayer is ideal for golf courses, tennis courts, and any athletic fields in which turf care is required.
Minimal Drift: The Greenkeeper Walkover Sprayer nozzles are mounted on the sprayer just 5″ above ground. This provides an accurate spray with minimal spray drift. Most commercial & knapsack sprayers spray from around 3 ft height & cause major problems with spray drift, particularly in populated areas ( asthmatic effects ), but also dangerous for the operators.
PSI: The Greenkeeper Walkover Sprayers operate normally at around 1 Bar pressure. This is
the equivalent of 15 Pounds per Square Inch pressure (psi). The output of the pump is 1.82 litres per minute at walking speed of 3.5mph
2 Nozzles: The Greenkeeper uses 2 sizes of spray nozzle. Both are supplied with the sprayer. A Red nozzle. The 25litre tank (5 gallons) will give coverage of 600 sq.
yards = 5400 sq. feet. A Blue nozzle. Will give coverage of 800 sq. yards = 7200 sq. feet.
Nozzle Size: The nozzle sizes are metrically calibrated: red is 200 micron & blue is 150 micron in size.
