Care And Maintenance
COURT AND SYNTHETIC GRASS CARE
Synthetic Grass once described as maintenance free. However, over the years this has been proven not to be the case. It is now recommended that a regular maintenance program will ensure more enjoyable, safer playing and living conditions and provide a longer life of your investment.
Synthetic Grass Courts are designed to have the following simple specifications:
- The fibres must remain upright.
- The sand infill must be clean.
- The sand infill must be loose (not compacted)
- The fibres must be exposed above the sand by a recommended length. (If too much fibre is exposed above the sand infill, they will bend on the shaft and not on the end causing them to break off lower down, reducing court life. If not enough fibre is exposed the sand infill the court will become very slippery and the lines will be hard to see.)

When a synthetic turf system is constructed, it is incapable of sustaining any life. However, being in a natural environment, it is introduced to air born dust particles, fungus, moss spores, vegetation, animal excreta, sweat and body oils etc. This makes your surface dirty and can even contribute to the reduction in free-flowing water through the sand infill. Your surface can then sustain the growth of moss and fungus, which can become very slippery and hazardous to walk or run on.
This silica sand itself breaks down due to wear, UV exposure and pollution. When it breaks down it turns into fine dust and when wet forms into a solid mass like limestone. This prevents the fibres from moving freely, therefore wearing out faster and reducing the life of your court. The surface will also become extremely hard underfoot and not provide the soft cushioning it was designed for. Hence ankle and knee joints will be jarred as per a hard court. The danger becomes apparent when your court has a mixture of hard and soft patches.
Bring your court back to life, the way it was designed.
We use specialised machinery approved by the major manufacturers of synthetic grass and the major agents of artificial turf.
Ultimately it is you who is responsible for your tennis court and sports surface aesthetic look, its condition and players’ safety. A regular maintenance program will ensure the court remains in superb condition and therefore prolonging its valuable life.
