South west London’s slow-draining clay soil profile has been causing almost total course closure for 2-3 months every winter at Malden G.C. “This is obviously unacceptable for our members,” says Head greenkeeper  Josh Thorley, “so this year we decided to invest in primary drainage throughout most of the course.”

Racing Ahead with Ecosolve

Ecosolve’s Gareth Phillips recently visited Ayr and Musselburgh racecourses in Scotland at the request of the Clerks of the Course to undertake an agronomic inspection of both racecourses. It is a British Horse Racing Association requirement that all racecourses must have an independent agronomic report each year, this includes looking at the condition of the track, sward cover, density and grass health, before undertaking soil profile sampling to ascertain the condition of the topsoil around the track.

Ecosol Team Gets Stronger

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Gareth Phillips to head up the Ecosol Turfcare operations team in the new position of Project Manager.

Gareth joins from agronomists PSD which specialise in professional sportsturf design and agronomic consultancy for projects across the full range of sports surfaces, from racecourses to bowls greens. His key accounts included Arena Racing Ltd, Bristol Bears Rugby, Bristol City FC and Principality Stadium, Cardiff amongst numerous other projects for organisations such as the RFU and Sport England.

After training at Cannington College Bridgwater and Bicton College, Devon, Gareth spent time as advanced practitioner for Reaseheath College’s Sportsturf Management course where he was responsible for the educational content and ran the apprenticeship programme.

Our team has recently been further strengthened with the addition of two skilled machinery operators, Steven Barber and Graham Witt, who have solid qualifications and experience in horticulture and agriculture respectively.

All three are enjoying getting out and about meeting our clients.
