Fraise Mowing

When set at shallow depth for “fraise mowing” it only removes the top layer along with thatch, weeds and rogue grasses whilst leaving main root structure intact, effectively a form of mechanical weed control. This process is termed “fraise mowing” and is used to remove organic debris and shallow rooted Poa annua. This method leaves the perennial ryegrass roots & crown intact on winter sports pitches and cricket. facilities (the majority of sports turf outside of golf in the UK are predominantly perennial ryegrass). The perennial ryegrass then re-establishes with a much reduced amount of Poa and no thatch. The resulting  debris is deposited into trailers via a conveyor system. Fraize mowing is generally also considered as the easy option to remove a small amount of thatch (few mm).
