Any natural sports turf surface requires regular maintenance and renovation to ensure that the playing surface stays in the best playable state. With little or no maintenance programme in place, your existing sports pitch may have deteriorated over years of use. Perhaps the area started out as a ‘grass field’ and now the old grass sward is unable to support regular use and recover from the effects of play.
We believe that the right renovation programme is just as important as the construction itself, to keep the playing surface in peak condition at all times. A relatively modest initial outlay at the end of playing season can help reinvigorate and extend the longevity of a natural sports pitch.
Poor drainage, water-logging and compaction are likely to occur on surfaces that have received little or no attention. This inevitably results in poor grass coverage and large areas of wear and weed infestation, restricting use during the winter months. During summer months, these areas can harden, with the surface becoming cracked, bare and unforgiving to play on.
Choosing the right renovation programme is vital to restore your playing surface to optimal condition and ensure it’s ready for the challenges of the new season, so this should be planned along with a thorough maintenance regime.
