Sports Facilities Maintenance.

Sports facilities maintenance, or sports grounds maintenance is the overseeing and ongoing care of your outdoor sports fields and facilities.

Every outdoor sports field requires a base level of maintenance, such as grass cutting and weeding, which helps to keep the grass healthy and the grounds clear of hazards like weeds or debris. This routine maintenance also enables you to clearly identify any problems with the surface of the playing field, such as divots, holes or pests.

Alongside routine care, it is also important to consider what is happening beneath the surface. With repetitive pressure the earth on your outdoor sports fields can very quickly become compacted, causing poor drainage or anaerobic conditions, both hostile for grass growth, and resulting in uneven, patchy and waterlogged grounds. Ultimately: unsightly and unsafe.

Through proactive and routine sports ground maintenance these potential hazards can be avoided and the playing surface kept in great condition, ensuring the safety of your players and prolonging the life of the playing field.

In addition to regular mowing and weed control, we provide services such as line marking, goal post maintenance, aeration and scarification, and can identify or repair any damage to the playing surface. We’ll see to it that your outdoor sports facilities are safe, compliant, and looking their best all year round.
