It is often said that the grass is greener where you water it. At ALS Contracts, we could not agree more. With a rich heritage steeped in years of experience, knowledge and expertise, we have earned a reputation for providing first-class sports pitch maintenance services. Every bowling green, cricket pitch, winter sports pitch or multi-facility complex we maintain becomes an outstanding sports surface, delivering top-notch performance and aesthetic appeal.
Why Sports Pitch Maintenance Matters
A sports pitch is more than just a playing field. It is an arena where athletes unleash their potential, fans experience thrilling moments, and memorable games unfold. A well-maintained sports pitch is paramount for two key reasons: safety and aesthetics.
A perfectly groomed surface ensures that athletes can give their best performances without worrying about safety. It drastically reduces the risk of injuries while providing optimal conditions for play. Simultaneously, a visually captivating pitch fosters a sense of pride in the team and attracts more visitors, enhancing the overall sporting atmosphere.
What Makes Us Stand Out?
For over three decades, our team of dedicated sports pitch maintenance professionals has been delivering exceptional services. Our comprehensive approach covers every aspect of pitch maintenance, ensuring your playing field remains in excellent condition throughout the year.
Comprehensive Maintenance Services
We offer an extensive array of services designed to cater to your specific needs:
Contract Mowing: Mowing is crucial for maintaining the optimal grass height for your sport. It fosters healthy grass, prevents weed growth, and promotes effective water drainage, aeration, and fertilisation.
Fertilising: Our liquid fertilisers are packed with all the necessary nutrients for robust, healthy grass. As part of our contract spraying services, we can simultaneously apply fertiliser and weed killer with ease.
Watering: A well-watered turf ensures the natural grass remains healthy and vibrant.
Aeration: Our verti-draining and hollow tining techniques foster soil aeration, promoting healthy grass growth by enabling oxygen to reach the roots.
Scarification: Our scarifying technique removes thatch, moss and other organic matter, usually performed after aeration.
Topdressing: After aeration, scarification, and overseeding, topdressing helps level the playing field, improves drainage, and reduces compaction. This process also enriches the soil with organic matter, enhancing its fertility and structure.
Impact of Grass Sports Pitch Maintenance
The state of your sports pitch directly influences athletes’ performance and satisfaction with your facility. For instance, if a golf course’s turf is poorly maintained, it becomes challenging for members to play, prompting them to seek better-maintained alternatives.
While exceptional pitch conditions cannot transform an average team into champions, it undoubtedly makes gameplay more enjoyable and competitive. Kick off the season on a positive note with a well-maintained, high-performing pitch courtesy of ALS Contracts.
We bring passion to our work, and your success is our success. We are committed to delivering top-quality sports pitch maintenance services that adhere to industry standards and exceed our customers’ expectations.

We boast a diverse range of modern machinery and equipment, including a Leica Rugby 420DG Laser mounted on a Harley Power Box Rake. This precision grading tool is capable of grading to Sports England specification within a variation across the pitch length of less than 1:100. With a range of 800 metres, it can accurately grade an entire facility from a single location, ensuring a perfectly level pitch with no room for error.
