Abstract/Contents:A technically constructed sports ground is one with a drainage layer below a root zone of sand with hardly any fine particles and a small organic matter content. A biologico-technical sports ground is one constructed with 5% organic matter (by weight), 15% fine particles < 0.02 mm, 30% fine sand (0.02-0.2 mm) and 50% coarse sand (0.2-2.0 mm), in a layer 30-35 cm deep, giving increased biological activity and waterholding capacity. Less biological activity and water storage in the first type may lead to increased thatch accumulation, with root growth restricted to the thin root zone and no significant water movement from the root zone to the drainage layer because of differences in pore size. The tolerance to wear of turf on both types of ground is discussed.
