Artificial grass. We know what you are thinking, what has artificial grass got to offer that tarmac of natural grass doesn’t? Well in today’s blog we are going to be answering just that and using our recent tennis court installation in Slingsby, North Yorkshire to illustrate it.

Tips to Make Sure your Tennis Court Installation Lasts:

Although artificial grass is low maintenance, this doesn’t mean that the surface can be neglected. There are a few tips that we recommend in order to extend the lifespan up to 20 years!

  • Pick up any debris that has fallen onto the surface at the earliest possible convenience, this can include leaves, rubbish and general foliage.
  • Brush the surface to redistribute the infill, you may also need to outsource power brushing which is part of our maintenance division.
  • Thoroughly inspect the surface on a regular basis, note any changes (e.g. a repair that needs sorting) and have this sorted as soon as possible.
