Turf Grow lights in Australia

Gilba Solutions are turf agronomists and sports turf consultants. We are the experts in turf grow lights in Australia and are the agents for SeeGrow Stadium grow lights. 

SeeGrow is the world leader in turf lighting solutions and turf fans. SeeGrow units are designed specifically for shaded sports turf and golf course turf, and Comm Bank Stadium is the first Australian venue to use turf-specific LED grow lights.

US research shows that ryegrass requires a Daily Light Integral (DLI) of around 23 to maintain optimum turf quality. Even though ryegrass survives at DLIs as low as 10, in a high-use situation, recovery is restricted at DLIs this low.

In 2007, the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) was to improve energy efficiency across the USA, and a similar state of affairs will occur in Australia. States across the USA are beginning to include HPS Grow Lights in their efficiency targets and are looking to phase them out.

SeeGrow Stadium Grow Lights:

  • Use up to 80% less power vs HPS light rigs. In 2022 work, Etienne Abélard and Christophe Galbrun state that despite their initial higher cost, LED grow lights are the best choice of light source;
  • LED lights are very energy efficient;
  • LED turf grow lights last up to 50,000 hours. In contrast, HPS bulbs last only 16,000 hours;
  • Over 24 hours you get increases of up to 10mm in shoot and root growth;
  • SeeGrow lights are very maneuverable and have a small footprint. Storage is not a problem;
  • Have an inbuilt irrigation system and heater;
  • By using purpose-built LED grow lights, the turf gets what it actually needs rather than what the light emits;
  • Each individual LED diode can emit light of a specific colour spectrum. This light spectrum means that you can adjust and customise LED grow lights in a way that’s impossible to achieve with other grow lights;
  • As they do not give out massive amounts of heat, LED grow lights can be used without any burning of the underlying turf;
  • LED lights give a significant germination and growth response if seeding with cool or warm-season grass.


SeeGrow supplies LED lighting systems to the following venues:

  • Comm Bank Stadium (Parramatta).
  • Chelsea FC.
  • Aviva Stadium.
  • Wembley Arena.
  • Millennium Stadium.
  • Manchester City.
  • AS Saint Etienne.
  • Werder Bremen.
  • QPR.
  • Arsenal FC.
  • Swansea City.
  • Juventus and
  • Singapore Stadium

Grow lights for the lawn

We have just recently introduced small, easy to assemble LED light units that run off 220V. Simply assemble and “plug and play”.
