Thruxton Race Circuit

Location: Thruxton, Hampshire
Area size: 30,000m²
Product: Hydroseeding using Sustane Organic Fertiliser
Client: Earthline

Project Background

RMB Hydroseeding was initially contacted by Thruxton Circuit’s contractor to hydroseed a large area that had recently been re-profiled. The area ran alongside the race track and our client required the vegetation to establish in time for their 50 year anniversary race event which was due to be televised at the end of June 2018. This project was completed in early May across two consecutive days.

Solution

Due to the need for rapid establishment we recommended an Amenity Grass Seed Mixture that contained Italian Ryegrass for rapid establishment and Clover to help build fertility in low nutrient soil. Due to the soil lacking nutrients on site the seed mix was supplemented with an organic fertilizer which added nutrients to the soil and encouraged bio diversity in the soil.

Outcome

The application was a success and the vegetation established in time for Thruxton Circuit’s televised race.

About Sustane 4-6-4 Organic Fertiliser

Sustane 4-6-4 is a natural organic starter and maintenance fertiliser. Sustane 4-6-4 works by replenishing the soil with a rich supply of humus (stabilised organic matter) and the essential nutrients required for sound and long term fertility programs. Sustane provides a combination of slow release nutrients and organic substances that provide all of the essential nutrients required for quality growth. Derived from biologically stable compost plus potash and feathermeal Sustane 4-6-4 Organic Fertiliser promotes a rapid rate of vegetation establishment. Sustane 4-6-4 was applied at 80g per square metre.
