Bancroft’s currently operate 2 Koro Field Top Markers, these machines are designed to remove the surface of the pitch to a specified depth, removing thatch, poa annua and weaker plants leaving healthier deeper rooting species. Overseeding following this process to create a healthier, stronger sward containing more preferable hard wearing species.


On older pitches sometimes surface levels are lost which require correcting, following cultivation our grading machinery which is designed to be guided laser is the ideal equipment to create a smooth level surface, ready for seed bed preparation.
