All sands are tested to New Zealand Sports Turf Institute requirements with test certificates available on request.
Fields 800 is a sand product ideal for use in the turf industry.
Fields 800 exhibits excellent drainage and particle distribution for use in field drainage systems, sand top dressing applications, and turf replenishment.
Particle distribution permits soil aeration and provides good resistance to compaction.
The product performs well in high rainfall locations and has been installed widely throughout the Auckland region since June 2006, in applications ranging from top dressing to full sand carpet re-installment.
Fields 800 is a marine sand sourced from deepwater (30 metres) and is consistently coarser than other marine sands available for turf application.
Fields 800 has been tested in trials carried out by the NZ Sports Turf Institute. They found no significant difference in grass growth characteristics or worm activity between grass-grown using Fields 800 and grass grown in a “proven industry-standard” sand.
Fields 800 is also available in smaller quantities suitable for customers wanting to refurbish residential lawns.
Fields 900 is an inland sourced sand from the relict Waikato River. It shows excellent particle size distribution and is slightly coarser than the Fields 800 and has no Calcium Carbonate content. Where fields may be susceptible to higher pH concerns this is the preferred option for top dressing and full sports field applications.
Fields 900 is also a popular sand for use in golf bunker or field renovations due to its lack of calcium carbonate content and high drainage characteristics.
Fields 1000 may be used as a blinding sand in certain applications or as a cleaner fill due to its coarseness. Note that due to its high pumice content it is not appropriate in all applications so please check with the customer to ensure it matches their provided specification.Please add in the two attached specific test reports plus the image from the product samples I provided you.
