GrassMaster Solutions offers advice on how best to extend the life of a hybrid pitch
The maintenance of a hybrid pitch is similar to that of a natural grass surface and will vary at different sites, with ‘closed’ stadia and ‘open’ training grounds having differing needs. That said, grounds managers must always consider a number of factors, such as the availability of natural light, air movement, climatic/micro-climate conditions and frequency of use. Annual renovation and professional pitch consultancy are also mandatory if a stable pitch quality is to be maintained.
