Make the most of CGM’s autumn sports pitch maintenance service

Date: September 4, 2014

With summer coming to an end now’s the time for those with sports pitches to think about their autumn pitch maintenance requirements.


Looking after your pitch is important and CGM provide the complete solution to ensure you can stand out from the rest. Here’s just some of the services you can plan in now for October/November 2014:



This service spikes the ground to relieve compaction and significantly improve drainage. The real benefit comes in allowing oxygen into the root system and stimulating growth.




Applying slow release autumn/winter fertiliser feeds the root zone and maintains a healthy swarth for the winter months.




Carried out fortnightly during the playing season, this process hugely improves surface drainage by cutting 4 inch deep slots into the ground.


Scari tracking


Here you can provide an absorbing pitch dressing on a fortnightly basis, working to the opposite weekend to slitting. The purpose is to redress the field of play to ensure it remains playable throughout the season.


Initial and over marking of pitches


This service ensures your pitches are clearly marked out and we will ensure we work around the key games and times you need extra attention to detail.



Many CGM clients have reaped the benefits of these services. Operations Manager Ian Burton, who has many years of grounds maintenance experience was quick to emphasise this.


“We use these services at a number of schools, sports clubs and recreation grounds throughout East Anglia,” he said. “They see some real benefits, better quality pitches that endure the colder months much better than if this treatment wasn’t applied.


“We’ve noticed that once our clients have put a maintenance package together, they see the improvements and use it year after year. And we also recognise that requirements vary depending upon the site – we have the flexibility to be able to adapt to any specific requirements.”
