The Row Planting System

The planter is designed to plant into open ground or into existing grasses to convert strain. The concept is cost effective and saves on downtime.

Most systems rely on pre-made planting material which is susceptible to drying out, both at preparation and planting. This system produces the stolons from fresh turf at the time of planting.

Demand for water is one third of that needed by conventional disc planting systems

This method puts 90% of the planting material below the ground. The surrounding soil needs only be kept moist.

The unit is highly maneuverable

The rear castor wheels can be placed easily into difficult areas and very efficiently maneuvered around obstacles such as trees and bunkers. The hydraulics enable easy lifting over sprinkler heads and valve boxes.

Applications

  • Golf course fairways
  • Golf course tee blocks
  • Council parks and gardens
  • Sporting ovals
  • Convert cool season grasses to drought tolerant species

Testimonial

"Hicks were awarded this contract on the basis of their innovative row planting machine which takes sod fed in at one end and then plants stolons into the prepared seed bed. The quality of the planting was of high order and gave a very good plant to soil contact at a good density."
