Turf and Sports Pitch Maintenance Planner

Plan your work schedule for the year with Horticulture Week’s month-by-month guide to essential maintenance and management tasks for turf and sports facilities such as bowling greens , cricket pitches , football pitches , rugby pitches , golf courses , lawns and other recreational and fine turf.

Jobs should only be undertaken when ground and weather conditions are suitable and will vary according to location and may vary significantly from year to year. While the year nicely divides into 12 months, activities often overlap.
