Professional application of a range of washed silica sands
Only washed silica sports sand should be used for application to a natural sports surface. Using reject or building sands merely introduces more silt and clay into your playing surface, increasing the chance of surface compaction and impeding drainage. Soft sands will break down quickly.
Adding silica sand will gradually improve the particle size of the soil but needs to be implemented on a continuing basis over a number of years. It is not advisable to apply more than 100 tonnes per pitch in one dressing for fear of smothering the grass.
We will supply a washed sports sand from the nearest quarry to you to keep the haulage costs to a minimum. The sand is delivered, tipped on to a stone free area close to site, and loaded on to belt and spinner spreaders pulled by tractors all with sportsturf tyres to avoid any unnecessary damage to your playing surface.
Although sand application should ideally be carried out in conjunction with other treaments, the introduction of a good washed medium/coarse silica sand into the rootzone will go along way to aiding drainage and improving the wear tolerance of your grass playing surface.
We can carry out particle size testing on your exisiting soil in our own laboratory to ensure that you are applying a sand that will enhance the soil structure. Please see our Pitch Perfect service for more information.
We have our own experienced maintenance teams who can help you with the following as part of a Maintenance Package or as a one-off maintenance service.
