Turf Renovation Services



Scarifying is a fast and efficient way to remove thatch, moss and dead/organic matter from turf. Scarifying has become common practice as part of renovating turf areas prior to overseeding during the spring or autumn months. Removing thatch, moss and other organic matter will enhance the turf encouraging healthy growth and a more dense sward. Our machines are suitable for all fine turf areas and winter sports pitches, fairways and outfields.

The Imperative of Sports Turf Renovation

Sports turfs aren’t just any patches of green – they’re grounds where athletes give their best, where dreams take flight, and where champions are made. Ensuring that these turfs are in the best possible condition is not just a matter of aesthetics but also a critical component of sports performance. This is where the process of scarifying comes into play.

Why Scarifying Is A Game-Changer

Promotes Robust Growth: Beyond the removal of unwanted elements, scarifying invigorates the turf. The process provides an avenue for new shoots to flourish, leading to a more robust and resilient playing surface.

Ensures Even Playing Field: For sports, an even turf can be the difference between a fair game and a flawed one. Scarifying ensures that the ground remains level and consistent, vital for games like golf, football, and tennis.

Optimises Nutrient Uptake: With the removal of barriers like thatch and moss, the soil can absorb water, nutrients, and air more effectively. This means a greener, healthier turf that’s less susceptible to diseases.

      “The lawns had begun to deteriorate over time and were full of weeds such as Daisies, Dandelions and Speedwell. The mature shrubs and bedding plants meant that it was a tricky job calling for expertise that we don’t have. We contacted the ALS Contracts Team because of their professional reputation, we’ve used them before and found them to be very good. We were contacted the day before to finalise arrangements, we’d elected for an early morning spray to avoid conflict with the public and the ALS team turned up on time and ready to get stuck in. Before I knew it they’d applied the herbicide and were applying the granular fertiliser. It was evenly applied and despite the proximity of delicate plants not a single plant was damaged, no signs of scorch or baulk marks which meant that it all went exactly where I wanted it. I could see the Daisies starting to die later that same day. The overall effect has been amazing, it really sets off the planting display. Bridgnorth is being judged by the Britain in Bloom Awards in a fortnights time so to have the lawns looking so weed-free and consistent really adds the finishing touches. Very impressed with the ALS Contracts Team.”
