Home to Swansea City FC and the Ospreys regional rugby team. Award-winning Head Groundsman, Dan Duffy, was concerned about the stress levels from the stadium’s heavy football and rugby season. He only had a small window of opportunity to renovate the pitch during the summer. Dan needed to see rapid germination, with a deep root system and thick sward. Using Maxstim allowed him to see excellent results, despite cooler temperatures of just 13 degrees C.

In just 5 weeks:

  • Germination within just 5 to 6 days
  • Rapid growth despite cool temperatures and overcast weather
  • Healthy, rigid plants
  • Pitch ready to play in just five weeks
  • Sturdier, more stable playing surface

Product: Maxstim for Professional Sports Turf

Where: Swansea, Wales

Time: May 2013

“Since the renovations, we’re using Maxstim as part of our normal maintenance routine. The pitch is growing, looking and performing really, really well, and I’m putting that down to Maxstim, as it’s the only thing that I’ve done differently this season.”
