about turfplaning services - g2 tuftools, inc. company history

g2 turftools® is a company dedicated to providing precision turf equipment for sports fields and golf courses. Its mission is to provide experienced quality turf managers with high quality products that make their jobs more cost effective and help them establish a new level of playability and aesthetically beautiful turf.

Our equipment has been designed and developed by an experienced sports field contractor. Pro Rain, owned by Eric Merkt and Clellon Downs, started building and maintaining athletic fields in 1997. They needed a better way of keeping the fields smooth and playable, so they developed a turfroller™ to use instead of the bulky asphalt rollers used by most athletic field managers. The turffloat™ was also developed to replace the drag mat that was used to break up aerification cores and to fill in low spots. The problem with a drag mat is that it only broke up the cores and followed the contours of the field. The turffloat™ not only gets rid of the cores, but fills in the low spots without creating a high spot on one side.

Although all of our equipment has been further developed from the original models built by Pro Rain, they are still of the highest quality and keep the same principle Eric and Clellon want – quality turf equipment to help maintain a high level of playability on sports fields.

turfplaning services® is a division of g2 turftools, inc®. It was started when the turfplaner® was developed in 2009. g2 turftools® needed a way to be able to sell the equipment but also control the quality of the service. The turfplaner® is unlike any machine on the market today and with this brand new technology, this was the best way to ensure the end customers would receive exceptional service and would be happy with the results of the turfplaning.

turfplaning services® is not a franchise.


"The Turfplaner is an exceptional piece of turf equipment for renovating athletic fields. It shortens the preparation time needed to have a field ready. It eliminates the old method of tilling the root zones and then trying to get them to grade correctly.."
