October 2010 Newsletter

Hi everyone, I hope this finds you all well, fit and rested. Spring is finally here and it’s time to get busy. So much has happened at Evans Turf over the past 12 months I hardly know where to begin.

The Simplot products have gone from strength to strength and are by far the best performing and diverse product range that we have been lucky enough to distribute. Virtually every turf situation is covered from inexpensive homogeneous standard release for all heights of cut through to industry leading slow release fertilisers such as Turf Gold for safe long lasting nutrition.

Possibly the most impressive part of our Simplot range is the selection of liquid fertilisers. Greenmaxx has led the way with its almost freakish ability to quickly produce a deep green and more importantly “natural” colour. In fact we are so impressed by the success and popularity of this product we are setting up the Greenmaxx Club, which will be a web based initiative where all Greenmaxx Club members can post pictures, discuss the issues of the day and receive invitations to take part in Greenmaxx promotions and functions.

There is no huge purchasing requirement; an order of only 20Lt of Greenmaxx is all it takes for you to join. We would encourage you to sign up with your Evans Turf Representative or contact us via our web site.

Evans Turf Supplies have recently taken on the David Golf distributorship for NZ and to show our commitment to this high quality range of products we have established David Golf NZ which will run as a separate business unit and be managed by Ray Moffat. Ray will be doing his best over the next few months to ensure he calls on all of you, however this is a colossal challenge and if you have any product requirements in the mean time please give him a call on 021 719 080.

We are also lucky to have Andrew Lloyd join the team in September. Andrew comes to us with an appreciation of both green keeping and business after being AGCSA apprentice of the year in 2008 and also having a stint with Fruitfed Supplies where he became aware of the “other side” of the industry and how it works. Andrew has already fitted into the company extremely well and I am sure he will become well known to all of you over the coming months.

Please browse our web site regularly as we are frequently running promotions and specials which are posted on our home page.

Have a safe and successful spring and I’m sure in what will seem like no time at all we will be enjoying a Christmas tipple.


All the best


Tony Evans
