Cricket Square Maintenance-Annual Planner

by TurfCareBlog

Take a look at the below chart titled the cricket square maintenance annual planner, its aim is to just give you a rough guide and help you plan in terms of labour and material for the coming months and weeks.

This is rough guide, so whether the use of granular is suitable for the month stated has to come down to you, if in doubt read the label and you wont go far wrong or speak to the person who sold you it.

Please note timings are a rough guide, based on my own experiences of living down south and may vary.

Also check out a couple of videos below on winter maintenance by the ECB

Ideally this planner needs to be viewed on a desktop computer, to be seen as a whole.
