What Our Customers Say

Aire Valley Grounds Maintenance

Products:

  • Impact Gold Line Marking Paint
  • iGO Impact Line Marking Machine

Comments:

Impact Gold is fantastic and definitely superior to what we were using before. It’s a much more brilliant, clearer line we get and it lasts longer as well. Another plus is that we use a great deal less paint than we used to.

The iGo machine is fantastic too. We’ve got two of them and I’m going to order another next week.

Bird Hills Golf Club

Products:

  • Breaker Advance Tablets
  • Breaker Advance Liquid

Comments:

Having been on a Rigby Taylor programme for the last 5 years, the quality of the products along with sound management skills has produced a healthy and desirable plant. To pick one product in particular is unfair to the other products we use, but I have to say the Breaker Advance, tablets and liquid, is an excellent product, along with the Amino Acid Supplement and Microbial Bio Stimulant greatly eases the stress to a high footfall golf course along with the quality service provided by Gareth, he is a reassuring voice at the end of the phone. We have worked closely over the past few years and the results are there to see.

Bishop Stortford College

Products:

  • Activate R
  • Glider Marking Machine
  • Impact Paint

Comments:

I would like to say how pleased we are with the two Reps we have had over the last few years. Firstly with Steve Denton who over the years has been a fantastic help to us, advising on products and the way forward on matters concerning the grounds. Over the years he has become a good friend. With him finishing we were concerned who was going to take over but with Mark we have a great replacement. With Steve and Mark there is no hard sell and it is a pleasure to deal with them.

Your products over the years have been very good. I have been particularly impressed with the Activate R, something that I use on cricket squares an awful lot. Your grass seed is excellent – we use R9 on our cricket squares and it germinates quickly and gives a lovely sward – it tolerates close mowing and recovers well.

This last year we have been using the Glider Marking Machine with Impact Paint – it gives a nice bright line and stands up well to rain when dry – an easy way to mark out especially when we have 15 pitches to mark – no mixing needed.

Your service is good, always within a week the delivery has arrived and that is all we can ask for.

Products:

  • Turf Hardener
  • Breaker Advance
  • Mascot Contact
  • Fusion
  • Rayzor

Comments:

Turf Hardner – Excellent results through the winter months into early spring. Dense cover and good colour.

Breaker Advance – Over the last 2 seasons of using Breaker a noticeable reduction in dry patch.

Mascot Contact & Rayzor – All very effective for controlling Fusarium with lengthy disease-free periods. Very pleased.

Various granular and liquid fertilizers – again great results with all products – they do what they say – timing helps.

Chippenham Golf Club

Products:

  • Eland

Comments:

I am quite happy to endorse Rigby Taylor’s products and service. Recently I have used Eland fungicide, which has given good protection against fusarium at a time when the disease has been very active.

Also in Summer I used the HG range of Tee Fertilizer, which gave a steady and controlled amount of growth.

Before using the fungicide I needed some technical advice on drying times. I contacted Lee and was provided with the information almost immediately. I will be more than happy to use Rigby Taylor’s products in future.

Clitheroe Golf Club

Products:

  • Activate R Granules

Comments:

The service provided by Rigby Taylor from ordering and delivery to technical backup and assistance is first class.

Their wide range of products is constantly being improved with new and innovative ideas that are effective and reliable.

Using Activate R Granules on my greens has improved disease tolerance, reduced thatch levels and have helped to encourage deeper rooting than I have previously experiences.

Dunstable Cricket Club

Products:

  • Mascot Systemic
  • Barclay Ringer
  • R9 Grass Seed
  • R14 Grass Seed

Comments:

I like the friendly, informative advice that I receive from Darren Mugford.

The service is good with prompt delivery.

With money being tight these days, you have to make certain the products will do the job effectively, and Rigby Taylor products live up to that.

One item in particular, Systemic/Ringer is the only effective worm control I have used.

The R9 seed is excellent, it fives really good dense cover, as does the R14 that we use on the football pitch.

All in all I have always been happy with Rigby Taylor service and products.

Farnborough Bowls Club

Products:

  • Masalon
  • Contact
  • Amino-Form F

Comments:

Since changing suppliers to Rigby Taylor two years ago we have been more than pleased with both service and products. We get what we want when we want.

Your representative is to be praised for his enthusiastic help and knowledge, always ready to visit should a problem occur and offer sound advice. A valuable help with our green.

I commend your well laid out and informative catalogue for being so helpful with application times and dosages.

Masalon and Contact are certainly superior to previous products used for disease control. More cost effective too.

Amino-Form F has been remarkable in virtually eliminating divot damage on the green. Even Club members comment!!

Kirkby Lonsdale Golf Club

Products:

  • Ringer

Comments:

All the products I have used have all been satisfactory. I particularly find Ringer a very cost effective treatment for worm control.

Ashley, our Rep, is helpful with his knowledge of the products, etc. A big thank you for arranging visits by Brian Robinson and Neil Baldwin – both very interesting to talk to.

Kirklees Stadium Development

Products:

  • Activate

Comments:

We used Activate for the first time this season. We have been very impressed with the product and think it has helped to produce a healthier plant. We shall continue to use the product.

The service you provide us is excellent, going above and beyond what would normally be expected – Simon personally fetching a leaf spot remedy from the depot ensuring we got the product as soon as possible.

Any other deliveries have always arrived on schedule.

Longridge Golf Club

Products:

  • Premier HG 3-3-32
  • Magnet Rapide
  • K-Form

Comments:

Used Premier HG 3-3-32 for first time this Autumn and had great results, good colour, healthy plant and good comments by members and visitors.

Used Magnet Rapide and K-Form to hard up the plant and again good results.

All feeds used this season have provided good results.

The direct debit scheme has proved to be really useful for the golf club this year, by spreading the cost over the year.

  • Breaker Advance

Comments:

Rigby Taylor General Products
Since becoming a Course Manager 12 years ago, Rigby Taylor have offered me a wide range of products, backed up by a prompt and friendly service.

Wetting Agents
In particular the Breaker Curative and Breaker Advance have proven to be excellent products. Recent STRI testing on the greens at Morecambe show that moisture levels had little variation within greens, or between greens. This shows that the wetting agent programme is working well. Both Dry Patch and Fairy Ring occurences are well under control

Products:

  • Mascot R9 Grass Seed

Comments:

I have used Rigby Taylor products on the multi sports site of which I have been Head Groundsman for over 30 years. My number one product is the Mascot Range of Grass Seed, having had to produce wickets for cricket from first class to club cricket R9 seed has never let me down.

Any technical problems and help is only a phone call away (problem sorted).

First class products for first class playing surfaces.

Northants County Cricket Club

Products:

  • Amino Form
  • Activate
  • R9 Coated Grass Seed

Comments:

I have known Steve Blakeman for over 20 years while working at Northants Cricket Club and I now regard him as a good friend.

I am a keen user of Rigby Taylor’s Amino Form and Activate products which I have seen a vast improvement on my grass areas.

I was also pleased with the R9 coated grass seed this year, which has resulted in a stronger, thicker, greener sward than in previous years.

I think your service is excellent and prompt and very competitive within the industry.

I will continue using Rigby Taylor products for the foreseeable future.

Norwich City Football Club

Products:

  • Duramark Supreme
  • Impact Paint & Marker

Comments:

I use Duramark Supreme at our Colney Training Ground as we mark every week I find it gives us a sharp line and works out good value for money.

This season we have changed to the Impact Paint and Marker at Carrow Road, this gives us a far superior bright line and cleaning of the marker is quick and easy with the aid of the flush through product.

I find the service at Rigby Taylor to be excellent and reliable.

Prestwick St Cuthberts Golf Club

Products:

  • Maxicrop No.1 and No.6 Seaweed
  • Advanced Breaker Wetting Agent
  • Amino Form F
  • Magnet Rapide Liquid Iron
  • Microflow

Comments:

All products I use give excellent results.

The Advanced Breaker Wetting Agent in conjunction with a fungicide programme has helped to reduce fairy rings.

Maxicrop mixed with Amino Form F during the growing season provides a dense sward and minimum stress on the plant.

Amino Form F mixed with Magnet provides healthy colour and healthy leaf – ideal for pre-tournament when closer mowing is required.

The results from the Microflow have been excellent. I have found this year nutrients have been steadily released from the roots. This has given the greens an even top growth and excellent colour throughout the season.

Overall I am very happy with any products that I purchased last year from Rigby Taylor. The service and advice I receive from David Carson is excellent and very much appreciated. I will continue to use Rigby Taylor products for the foreseeable future.

Sandyhills Golf Club

Products:

  • Activate R Granules
  • Activate R Liquid
  • Amino Form
  • Masalon
  • Eland
  • Microflow CX
  • Mansfield 35 Sand

Comments:

Granules – I use this product regularly after hollow coring in the autumn and aeration in the spring. I also do my own green reconstruction and find it a valuable aid in root development when bringing a new green back into play. In between these treatments I use Activate R Liquid mixed with Amino Form as and when required with good results.

Microflow CX – This is of great use in the summer months, easy to mix and apply I find it very helpful to use just prior to big competitions.

Bunkers – we are currently in a programme of filling all our bunkers using Mansfield 35 sand.

  • Mascot R11
  • Mascot R9
  • Mascot R12
  • Mascot Fineturf Fertilizer 3.10.5
  • Timbrel
  • Edwards Sports products (Goal Posts, Sockets, etc.)

Comments:

I maintain facilities for cricket, football, rugby, hockey, rounders/softball, lawns and mature areas.

Very pleased with the results gained from using the Rigby Taylor range:-
Mascot R11, R9 and R12 seeds
Mascot Fineturf Fertilizer 3.10.05 good for our root growth
Timbrel – great results on nettles and briar

Also the Edwards Sports products – goal posts and sockets etc are good value for money

I have been using the Rigby Taylor range for more than fifteen years on school grounds and before that on Northamptonshire County Cricket Ground and Northampton Town football ground when it was a dual purpose ground – always with good results.

Tranmere Rovers FC

Products:

  • Magnet Dynamic

Comments:

We put the Magnet Dynamic on and almost overnight it greened up the surface really well. I was amazed to see the difference.

We use Rigby Taylor’s line marking paint on all three of our pitches. It always produces a very bright line which is rain-fast as well, which is important for us because if we’re marking an hour before the match and it rains you don’t want them to wash out. Even towards the end of the season when you’re marking on old lines with not a lot of grass, it stays in.

Andy Quayle,
Head Groundsman at Tranmere Rovers FC

Trentham Park Golf Club

Products:

  • Blockade
  • Integrate
  • K-Form
  • Seaweed

Comments:

Using Microflow range of fertilizers in conjunction with our maintenance policy I have been able to alter the nutrient input without creating a flush of growth. Combined with over seeding from the Mascot range there have been great improvements in the playing surface.

After recommendation from Tony I have used several of the Mascot Speciality range of products. Blockade, Integrate, K-Form and seaweed, all have worked very well on our site doing exactly what it said on the tin.

The technical knowledge of my RT Representative is very useful if I have any queries regarding products and end results.

After trying products from here, there and everywhere I now only use RT as they can cater for my every need, and respond to my loyalty with a very efficient service. From order to delivery I am very satisfied with the whole set-up.

Twickenham

Products:

  • R14 Grass Seed

Comments:

I have always been a fan of Rigby Taylor. Rodger Bowles is my third member of staff and we have a really good working relationship. We discuss all aspects of ground care and with the wrap-around stadium it is nice to bounce ideas.

I trust Rigby Taylor products to do what they say they will do. The fertilizer is very good.

I was most pleased this year with the R14 grass seed. It was the best take of grass seed I had ever seen!

I do hope that we can get the working agreement between the RFU and Rigby Taylor off the ground. Together we can push the standards of all pitches even higher.

Products:

  • Impact Gold Line Marking System

Comments:

After talking with Mark from Rigby Taylor about their new line marking system, we decided to make the change from our existing dilutable paint and move over to the new Impact Gold concentrate and Glider machine.

We have estimated that it should save us in the region of 3000 litres per year in water, plus it will reduce the man hours involved in mixing and refilling during a day’s line marking. Any of our staff can use the Glider due to the simplicity of the system and general operations are cleaner and safer due to no paint mixing.

Since taking delivery of our new system in January 2011, we have really noticed an improvement in line quality, they seem brighter and remain longer. Overall we are very happy with our new system.
