The Football Association lists the four main criteria of good sports pitches’ playing surface as:
Sufficient/adequate grass coverage
Low level of weeds
Flat and true
Long gone are the days of a football pitch looking like a mud bath by mid-winter. Proper regular maintenance and renovation means that pitches can be kept in excellent conditions for the players and fans throughout the season.
This is true of all playing surfaces, whatever the sport. And that is what we deliver!
Sports we cover
We manage and renovate sports pitches for a wide range of sports, both professional and amateur. If it is played on grass, we can help!
We work with a wide range of sports clubs and local authorities on the following sports pitches and playing surfaces:
We also work with schools and colleges to maintain and renovate their sports pitches, for all the above sports, and more.
Sports pitch maintenance and renovation
We work with clients in a number of ways, most commonly renovation of the playing surface and ongoing maintenance.
Renovation, normally done at the end of the season, will entail:
Removal of the surface and application of sports sand – if the surface does not need removing, we will scarify instead
Aeration and de-compaction of the soil
Over-seeding and application of fertilizer
Top dressing, worked into the surface using a drag mat
A programme of maintenance will cover a planned schedule of aeration, scarifying, hollow coring, top dressing and fertilizer application. Part of the planned maintenance programme may include an end of season renovation. However, with regular maintenance, a full renovation will be needed every two to three years, rather than annually.
You can view our case studies covering a range of sports pitches and the different types of work we have done, including restoring the outfield for St Asaph Cricket Club after disastrous flooding and a moss-infested waterlogged playing surface at Carmel Bowling Club.
