Sports Turf Construction & Maintenance

Sports turf built to withstand all seasons

From laying the groundwork for a beautiful, newly built field of play to maintaining existing pitches of the highest standard, your sports venues can be ready to host matches all year round with the help of our expert sports turf construction and maintenance services.

Maybe your old pitch is calling out for artificial grass installation so your team can play its best atop synthetic turf. Or perhaps you need new grass laid around the wicket area of your cricket grounds, or need to clean up the goalmouth of your football pitch or make your fairways and greens cleaner and ready for stroke play. You might need an ongoing plan to keep your ground watered and thriving from the first bounce to the last siren of the grand final and through the offseason.

We also handle planning and designing surfaces that not only suit your sports, but also the soil and environment in which they’re played. And each project is led by a dedicated manager who serves as your convenient, single point of contact for any questions or concerns you have along the way.

Whatever the case, Landscape Solutions can develop and implement a plan that works for your sports turf project.

See how we helped Brothers Rugby Club by finishing a complete turf re-lay in less than three weeks and performing ongoing maintenance to keep their grounds ready for hard-hitting rucks, mauls and scrums year-round.

Constructing a sports field is no small task. Building it correctly early on will save you issues down the track, particularly when it comes to drainage and irrigation. Since every field is different, the installation time can vary depending on a number of aspects. A sports field installation could take anything from a couple of months to a couple of years for larger projects. 

Choosing the correct type of turf to suit the purpose of the sports surface is crucial. This is why Landscape Solutions conducts a detailed assessment and selects a variety that best suits our customers needs and wants. Kikuyu and Couch are commonly used on sports fields, and synthetic varieties are also becoming more common. 

Couch is a common turf grass variety found on cricket pitches. However not all cricket pitches are built on natural varieties. Many are constructed using artificial turf.

Sports turf surfaces and facilities are commonly built by landscaping and sports management professionals. When engaging a sports turf professional, it is important to engage a company with knowledge and experience around all elements of the project. That includes everything from civil works, drainage and irrigation to the laying of turf and maintenance. 

Artificial turf is essentially what the name suggests, a synthetic alternative to natural turf. Composed of polyethylene, polypropylene and nylon, artificial or synthetic turf is a durable plastic polymer that mimics the appearance of natural grass. Originally mainly used in areas where drought was common, it is becoming far more commonplace on sports fields around the country as the production of it has evolved.

Sports turf management is a combination of professional skills, industry-leading resources and the latest in technology to provide clients with enduring, high-performance turf surfaces. It combines construction, maintenance and irrigation services to produce quality turf, enabling customers to stay focused on things like player development and training.

Sports turf management can also involve the other aspects of sporting complexes and events. Event preparation, line marking, set up of goal posts, maintenance of surrounding gardens and more. 

How long it takes to mow a football field mowing time varies. It can depend on how high-end the field is, whether it is for professional use or a local council sporting field, for example. The mower being used can also impact time frames. 

Sports turf naturally needs to be durable and suitable for all weather types, sports and scenarios. Commonly used varieties include Couch, Kikuyu and Zoysia. Synthetic turf is also commonly used on newly constructed sports fields as an alternative to natural turf. 

The time it may take to re-lay sports turf depends significantly on the size of the field and the condition of the surface. We have delivered a full turf re-lay for our customer Brothers Rugby Club in just 20 days, however it could take up to 60 days depending on the extent of the project.
