Hydro Seeding at North Harbour Stadium

North Shore Auckland New Zealand

Client:  North Harbour Trust

Date:   15 September 2006

Brief:   To hydro seed newly prepaed areas where turfgrass grass had been harvested for repair work to the main playing field with premium grade sports turf perennial ryegrass

On a number of occasions I was contracted to hydroseed areas on the practice fields at North Harbour Stadium, North Shore Auckland New Zealand with premium grade sports turf perennial ryegrass seed in areas where turf had been harvested to do repairs to the main sports field following concerts and other events that had damaged the turf playing surface

North Harbour Stadium is a stadium, situated in Albany, in North Shore City, in New Zealand. It was opened in 1997, after nearly a decade of discussion, planning and construction. Rugby union, football and rugby League are the only sports played on the main ground. The stadium also hosts large open air concerts.

The first Hydroseeder was invented by FINN in 1953, and trademarked thereafter, to efficiently shoot seed and fertilizers over broad areas. This invention was more than a product innovation - it was the seed that grew an entirely new industry of turf and erosion control contractors.

Conwed Fibers®

was a pioneer in the development of wood-fiber based hydraulic mulch in 1965. We set the industry standards for performance then, and nearly a half decade later, Conwed Fibers products are still delivering superior performance with unrivaled consistency.
