Our cricket pitch renovation service is tailored to the client’s requirements. The majority of cricket pitch renovation work is completed in the autumn and includes scarification, deep scarification, seeding, top dressing and feeding. These processes repair the wear and tear incurred from playing, remove debris from the turf which firms the surface for a consistent bounce and ensure a healthy new growth to maintain excellent coverage
Through the winter months spiking and Verti-draining is then carried out to complete the renovations. Holes are punched into the ground, which assists with root development and helps with drainage.
