Siems Turfgrass Ltd will operate two independent services available to golf courses, football clubs and all other grass sport surfaces.

Siems Turfgrass Consultancy will provide site-specific golf course management consulting, tailored to support clients in improving all aspects of their golf course maintenance, from improved budget management to course construction and renovation. 

The topics covered are Turfgrass Management; Staffing/Budget Management; Project Management; Maintenance; Water Management and Environmental Management all available via individual customised consultancy packages

Dryject is the world’s number one sand injection service that aerates, topdresses and amends in one pass, with playing surfaces ready within one hour after treatment. Dryject is routinely used at thousands of golf courses around the world and Ken is excited to bring this unique service the UK and Ireland.

DryJect uses a high-speed, water-based injection system to blast aeration holes through the root zone to fracture the soil. The patented vacuum technology simultaneously fills holes to the surface with high volumes of sand or amendment. This means you can relieve compaction, increase water infiltration, reach the root zone with oxygen and amend your soil with high volumes of material all at the same time.  Using wet or dry sand, DryJect leaves the surface smooth and playable which results in no negative loss to club revenue.
