Rosedale Gold Turf Sand
Our premium “Rosedale Gold” turf sand is sourced from our Rosedale quarry in Central Gippsland.
This unwashed product in its normal screened ex quarry state produces a very desirable turf sand with excellent Particle Size Distribution, neutral pH and achieves expected drainage rates.
Many fine sands are sourced from dune deposits which can have high salt content and narrow Particle Distribution. This can lead to caking, poor drainage and unacceptable pH levels. A fast drainage rate will lead to high water use and the leaching of nutrients, a slow drainage rate will cause “ponding” and can cause the sub layer to become anaerobic. Both these conditions lead to poor growth and in extreme cases will lead to failure of the turf.
Gippsland Premium Quarries is in the process of creating a premium golf course and sportsfield turf blend in conjunction with scientists from SESL laboratories. Watch this space for more information.
Using Rosedale gold turf sand as the base material we are creating ready to plant vegetable soil for the professional landscaping and urban design industry, ideal for rooftop gardens, open spaces and specialised plantings.
