February Maintenance

The weather for the most part has settled down with a reasonable mixture of rain, sunshine, cold and warmth. Last week I was sure that there was some movement in the grass, which was good to see.

March Maintenance

If we thought last year was a good test for a grounsman's skills then I guess that this year has been equally so, particularly with the levels of rain, sleet and snow giving this winter a very grey feel, and no surprise that the grass on most pitches will be looking a little thin in places.

April Maintenance

It is incredible to think that we have come out of one of the coldest, wettest winters on record only to experience the driest March on record. Hopefully, providing you manage to get your renovations timed to perfection, you may still be able to take advantage of some traditional April weather of warmer, sunny days interspersed with some of nature's watering in the form of rain.

May Maintenance

As we enter into the month of May football pitch renovations will be at the forefront of Groundsmen's minds. Most clubs will have nearly finished their playing season, albeit some friendly games or cup matches may remain.

June Maintenance

Hopefully, for the majority, you will have completed your pitch renovations by now, eagerly waiting for the new seed to germinate and get to the two to three leaf stage, so you can start mowing.

July Maintenance

The recent rainfall has been most welcome for the many groundsmen who have struggled to water their pitches adequately during the prolonged dry period. With plenty of moisture back in the soil profile, the grass will begin to colour up and promote some much needed growth.

August Maintenance

The weather predictions for this month are that it is likely to become wetter with frequent showers just about everywhere. This is probably welcome for those without an irrigation system to keep the water reserves in the soil topped up, and particularly in ensuring that new seedlings have the right moisture levels to survive.

September Maintenance

The weather predictions for this month are that it is likely to become wetter with frequent showers just about everywhere. This is probably welcome for those without an irrigation system to keep the water reserves in the soil topped up, and particularly in ensuring that new seedlings have the right moisture levels to survive.

October Maintenance

The recent dry weather in many parts of the country will have affected many grass pitches. Here in the Midlands, particularly in Shropshire, we have had less then 70mm of rain in the last six months - that equates to less than 3mm per week.

November Maintenance

For those who experienced a very dry August, the chances are that despite the more inclement weather experienced during October, you will not need to go too far down the soil profile before you hit dry soil and, in some instances, only an inch or two.

December Maintenance

The weather last month was remarkable, with many parts of country experiencing very mild temperatures; this time last year we were all having to deal with several inches of snow.

January Maintenance

Another year over and the end of a decade to boot, and may I extend my good wishes to you all for the coming year. We still have a long way to go to the end of the season and though the days will now start to get longer, we still appear in the grip of some very cold swings of weather.
