Casey Fields, City of Casey
Casey Fields was Lilydale Instant Lawn's very first commercial TifTuf Bermuda installation.
It began with 800 square metres surrounding the tennis pavilion, on 23 January 2018. This site was a great test straight out of the blocks with its East facing perspective shaded by both Pear trees and large gum trees. The south side of the building has heavy wear and is shaded by the structure and the site was established with our irrigation establishing on hose and sprinkler and then surviving on what nature delivered. ( irrigation was installed two years later)
Our second TifTuf Bermuda installation was a large mounded playground in September 2018, this playground is a very high traffic area, and our client felt that the strong rhizome structure would help the grass handle the wear and tear through Winter and ensure great recovery in Spring – it has delivered in every aspect.
Our third TifTuf Bermuda project here was driven by the performance that was noted in the first two sites. Our client decided to convert a high water use Rye grass Australian rules football ground into TifTuf Bermuda.
The oval can now handle a much greater volume of use and has dramatically reduced its water usage which is a major benefit given the sheer size of this facility and the amount of sports fields requiring irrigation. TifTuf Bermuda was placed under great pressure at a very early stage when the field was used for a large multi day event then went straight into a football season it travelled through very well and has consolidated into a high quality sports surface.
Sept 2018 onwards
