As reliable astroturf Contractors, we ensure that all our sporting surfaces are 100% usable in every weather condition. Our turf has a permeable finish which allows water to pass through both the artificial grass layer and the foundations beneath so that the ground is truly all-purpose.
Our surfaces are built using reduced fines angular stones for a durable quality that still allows water to pass through effectively. Head to our surfacing page for further info on the features of our different pitch surfacing options.
Artificial Turf Maintenance
Whichever turf you opt for, it is important that you give your sports surface regular, proactive maintenance that will prevent any issues arising with the pitch’s porous design.
The best way to do this is to ensure that all contaminations are dealt with by brushing and deep cleaning the artificial grass fibres. The turf infill also needs to be maintained and topped up appropriately to prevent flooding.
Should any damage occur to your surfacing, reactive maintenance may also be required on occasion to ensure the lifespan of our product; this may include seam repairs, infill rejuvenation or full resurfacing.

Does Artificial Grass Attract Flies?
Artificial turf has the advantage of not attracting insects, which is one of its best features. Since there is no uncovered soil on synthetic turf, there is no ready food supply. Ants, spiders, gnats, flies, and mosquitoes must find someplace to live.
How Do You Maintain Fake Grass?
While many people assume that low maintenance means no maintenance, artificial grass is a low-maintenance alternative to a real lawn. Although fake lawns do not need watering or mowing like real lawns, they do require some maintenance to keep them in good shape.
Once a week, most homeowners would need to gently hose down their synthetic lawns. Dust and other small debris that has collected during washings can be removed by spraying the grass fibres with a hose.
