Football Pitch Renovation

Observing Football Pitch Renovation

We were invited to spend the day observing and helping the end of season pitch renovations out at Northampton Town FC. Head groundsman Paul Knowles had arranged for the grass to be taken up in order to remove unwanted grass varieties such as annual meadow grass which have built up over the season. A layer of fibresand was then applied before seeding with a perennial ryegrass mix.

The last three images show the growth of the new grass over just 3 weeks!
