Two toolkits are available for managers of Irrigated Public Open Space (IPOS). You can read more about IPOS here.

It gives you a yearly calendar of maintenance tasks and activities to help you get the best out of your turf. Given the variation in conditions at different locations, it is only a guide – but it's the best place to start.
