PST Specialist Pitch Maintenance
While an artificial pitch may be low maintenance, it is not maintenance-free and will age prematurely if not looked after correctly. Regular maintenance is essential and will ensure your pitch performs better and lasts longer. We encourage every pitch owner to adopt a comprehensive maintenance regime following installation to prolong the longevity of the surface.
Monitoring your artificial pitch in its first year as it beds in is critical. Ensuring infill levels are correct will help prevent carpet fibres from flattening, and repairing any minor seam failures will help you avoid any expensive repair costs in the long term.
Along with day to day maintenance, specialist maintenance is critical for optimal performance and maximum life expectancy. The biggest issue that we see with artificial grass pitches is the compaction of sand and rubber infill after intense usage which results in damage to carpet fibres and poorer playing characteristics.
PST has a dedicated in-house maintenance team offering a range of Specialist Maintenance Packages including carrying out any necessary pitch repairs. So, if your pitch is firm underfoot, contact us today to find out more about the different maintenance programmes we offer.

PST Sport carried out a maintenance project on our existing artificial playing surface – we’re very much a sports-focused school so it was important that we were able to extend the lifespan of the artificial pitch.
From initial planning right through to the finished job, PST Sport were very easy to deal with and were very professional in terms of the practical know-how that they brought – delighted to say that their maintenance program has ensured that our pitch is now a top quality facility that all of our students will benefit from.

3G Pitch Rejuvenation
Due to the natural process of rubber migration an artificial grass pitch can lose several millimetres of rubber infill over time. PST Sport offer a pitch rejuvenation programme to replace the lost infill to ensure optimum performance and maximize the lifespan of your pitch.
