GOLF COURSE Construction

healthy grass starts with healthy soil

Preparing a good foundation for your seed is perhaps the most important part of the golf course construction process. Poor site preparation can result in poor drainage or an unlevel seedbed, which can hurt turf’s chances for rapid establishment.

A Trusted tool for golf course construction

The Barber TURF RAKE is an effective machine for rock and stone picking and is widely used by members of the Golf Course Builders Association of America Certified Builders (GCBAA) on their projects to prepare the soil for seeding.

stone picking & debris removal

Using hundreds of raking tines, the TURF RAKE removes harmful debris from the dirt such as stones and rocks from 1/2 inch to 4 inches in diameter, as well as roots and sticks that are longer in length. The TURF RAKE can be easily adjusted to rake and clean from 1 inch to 6 inches deep into the soil. The optional finisher assembly at the rear of the machine glides over the cleaned area leaving a smooth prepared surface. View more technical specifications.
