We provide 3G synthetic grass maintenance for a range of different facilities in the UK. Many organisations throughout the UK are choosing to have 3G artificial sports pitches installed to replace muddy and waterlogged natural grass surfaces which have become damaged and worn out over time. These 3G sports surfaces can be constructed to meet a range of design specifications and budget requirements for each individual project. 3G pitches also have rubber crumb infill particles installed within the fibres to provide the perfect playing characteristics for football and rugby.
Feel free to contact us if you need some more advice on these services, and we’d be happy to discuss this with you. Just let us know what you need and we’ll provide all the information you need.
Maintaining Artificial Grass Pitches
Even though artificial pitches require much less maintenance compared to natural grass, it’s still important to carry out 3G synthetic grass maintenance on a regular basis to ensure that the surface remains safe and does not get damaged. There are a number of ways for you to clean and maintain an artificial turf sports surface, some of these methods include:
- Grooming and Drag Brushing – This helps to keep the rubber infill evenly distributed to maintain even playing characteristics.
- Decompaction – Redistributing or extracting and replacing rubber infill to prevent it becoming stuck together deep in the grass fibres.
- Chemical Treatments – Prevent the growth of moss and algae which could contaminate the turf fibres of the pitch.
- Infill Top Up – The addition of extra rubber crumb infill particles to bring back the top playing qualities of the pitch.
- Resurfacing – This may need to be carried out if the pitch is in very bad condition and is unsuitable for use.
If regular 3G synthetic grass maintenance is not carried out, a number of pitch problems could occur and have a negative impact on the performance and safety of the surface. These problems could include infill compaction, moss and algae contamination and loss of drainage which can all lead to flooding and waterlogging of the 3G artificial pitch which would make it unsafe for use.
Costs for 3G Turf Maintenance
The costs and prices involved with carrying out 3G synthetic grass maintenance can vary for each project depending on the specification of the works, the site location and access to the area. A price for a total resurfacing job will of course be a lot more expensive than just a simple drag brush and redistribution of infill. However it’s important to consider 3G synthetic grass maintenance costs when devising a budget for an overall artificial sports pitch construction project. We aim to give you a great value service to keep your 3G artificial pitch in top condition while still staying within your budget requirements.
Although it can sometimes be expensive, proactive maintenance for a 3G sports surface is an investment for your organisation as it can help reduce the need for costly repairs and resurfacing in the future as the pitch is less likely to become damaged or worn out. Carrying out regular maintenance is important for any sports surface as it prolongs its life expectancy and maintains excellent performance characteristics, as well as keeping the facility safe for those who use it.
Woodhouse grove school
Soft Surfaces won a competitive tender to supply and install a new 6528 m² all weather pitch, marked for football, rugby union and three 5-a-side pitches. There is storage at one end for posts and equipment and the complex is enclosed by a 3m high rebound fence. Lighting columns were erected along the perimeter, and lighting bollards to the access path. A large-scale earthworks scheme was undertaken to create a plateau some 900mm above the 100-year flood level in order to accommodate the pitch. SS worked over weekends and during the normal Christmas shutdown to minimise delays.
When AFC Bournemouth wanted to create a new training surface, we looked into the various options. We discussed the performance and playing characteristics of a variety of surfaces. In the summer, we chose a 3G surface (Rhino Turf VT40) which was supplied and installed by Soft Surfaces Ltd. We chose the Rebounce shock-pad to compliment the VT40 surface, as it met the performance, quality and the most natural appearance – so much more realistic in looks, feel and performance than other synthetic surfaces. We have found Soft Surfaces to be very professional and easy to deal and work with.
Banister Primary School
We believe we received good value for money by opting to use Soft Surfaces and would like to thank the team for making it painless and stress-free installation experience. We were particularly impressed with the degree of flexibility your exercised as we wanted to change the perimeter area. It’s also important that I state how impressed we were with the cleanliness and tidiness of the work; the site was spotless upon completion. Likewise, the after service has been good and we appreciate that you’ve stayed in touch to make sure we were pleased with the end product. In summary i would be happy to reccomend Soft Surfaces without hesitation or reservation; it was a pleasure doing business with you!
Activity For All
Soft Surfaces came to run a brief presentation on the advantages of their product and why he felt that this was best value and straight away we understood what we was getting as a product, service and installation. I am more than happy with how the project ran with it being delivered ontime, within budget and now have a great football artificial 3G surface. I would strongly recommend dealing with James Dooley at Soft Surfaces who will talk you through the various costs, specifications and finer details because would definitely like to point out that the cheapest is not always the best value. Massive thank you to the team for providing us now with a thriving new facility!
Golborne High School
I would like to express my thanks to all the staff at Soft Surfaces Ltd for helping our school in the upgrade of our MUGA flooring. We were experiencing serious problems with contaminated sand causing flooding and making the surface dangerous under foot. You undertook a site visit and carried out an infill contamination assessment to investigate the problems. This identified that the sand infill needed replacing to bring the facility back to its correct playing characteristics and porous again. The PE staff in school are extremely impressed with the impact of the work undertaken and have commented that it has made a significant improvement to the MUGA surface. I would certainly recommend Soft Surfaces!
