Natural Turf Renovation Works

Swindon, Wiltshire

Renovation and seeding works on grass football pitches

Earlier this year, Fieldform were appointed by South Swindon Parish Council to carry out Spring renovations on several natural turf football pitches at Buckhurst Sports Field, works included:

  • Application of selective herbicide weedkiller
  • Initial cut and collect using our tractor mounted Amazone Groundkeeper
  • Carry out a verti-cut and scarification to reduce sward and remove thatch content
  • Aeration and soil decompaction
  • Top dressing
  • Application of granular fertiliser
  • Seeding at a rate of 35g/m2

To complete these works we utilised several machines from our extensive fleet including:

  • Amzone Groundkeeper
  • Shelton 3T Universal sand and gravel hopper
  • Campey Speedresser
  • Mumby Star Seeder

Client Testimonial

After five years of the football pitches at Buckhurst Field being inactive, South Swindon Parish Council seized the opportunity to reactivate them and enable football to be played once more. Robins FC, a local boys club and Spitfires FC, a local girls club will be the biggest beneficiaries with over 200 youth members between the two clubs. 

The playing surfaces were manipulated intensively by Fieldform and immediately looked much improved. We are very confident the pitches will soon be better than they have been for he last couple of decades and will be retaining this level of quality by delivering an enhanced maintenance schedule in-house. Fieldform will remain a valued contractor to the Parish Council. 

We though Fieldform were excellent. Their initial advice was well considered and clearly bespoke to our land and situation. Public land brings extra challenged to project management and Fieldform were wise to these challenges and planned the work thoroughly. The guys who came and carried out the works were first class operators and nice chaps too. Thanks Fieldform.
