Aim:

  1. To lift creeping stems and leaves of grass before mowing to create an even surface.
  2. To remove dew and prevent disease in autumn and winter.
  3. To work in materials into the turf surface.
  4. To clean up rubbish from pitch ends after a game. 

Method:

The moving of a brush against the surface of the turf. The can be pulled by a groundsman or be tractor mounted if conditions allow the tractor on the surface

Timing:

As required.

Effects of Incorrect Procedure:

If lateral grass growth is not removed, layers of thatch will be product reducing the pace and bounce on pitches.

Equipment Selection:

  • A pedestrian power brush.
  • Some pitch mowers have a mounted brush which brushes the surface as you cut.
  • Some mowers have a cassette system which has a brush cassette for power brushing a surface.
  • A tractor mounted brush for larger areas. 

Practical Tips:

In pitch preparation brush the surface before each cut to remove more grass from the surface.
