Fulham FC’s Head Groundsman, Phil Fifield has tended sports surfaces both in the UK and Middle East and is always looking for new and innovative ways to improve plant health, performance and root density.

Having read about Maxstim he was keen to see how it could help with the pitch condition at Craven Cottage. Maxstim was applied every 21 days and after a short time the playing surface was noticeable more robust with each application showing fewer divots and scars. The roots are stronger and denser which makes the pitch more resilient to stress and wear.

In just 3 weeks:

  • Fast seed germination
  • Dense foliage
  • Less divots
  • Healthy sward

Product: Maxstim for Professional Sports Turf

Where: Craven Cottage, home of Fulham Football Club

Application rate: Sprayed every 21 days

“Maxstim has played a big part in thickening the foliage and we’ve noticed fewer divots too, enough scars to keep us busy but the decline in divots is noticeable. Maxstim has become part of our pitch regime both here and at our training facilities. I would recommend Maxstim and am looking forward to seeing the results next season from seeding.”
