  • Pitch Renovation Process

    Every sports pitch has a different set of maintenance requirements. We use our deep knowledge and years of experience to create an appropriate renovation plan for each individual pitch.

    From community pitches to elite sport stadia our renovations are tailored to the condition of the pitch, intensity of usage, and level of play. Works are planned to minimise disruption and maximise value.

    1. Site Assessment

    We begin the process with a site assessment and discussion with grounds staff to identify a program of renovation. Required works may include:

  • Removal of dead organic matter
  • Compaction relief to lift and aerate the soil profile
  • Balancing nutrient levels and re-establishing grass
  • Maintenance and clearing of drainage ditches
  • 2. Proposal and Quotation

    Following the assessment we will develop a pitch renovation plan. Following any feedback and changes we will provide you with a detailed breakdown of costs in our quotation.

    3. Renovation

    Works will be conducted by our in-house team using our wholly owned plant and machinery. We have the experience and capability to overcome any unforeseen challenges and ensure we achieve agreed deadlines.

    To minimise disruption the team carefully plan logistics in advance and rapidly de-mobilise upon conclusion of the works.

    Privacy and Confidentiality

    With a client base spanning schools, elite sports teams, and stadia all of our staff understand the importance of privacy. We treat all enquiries and conduct all works in strict confidence.

    Safety and Environment

    Reducing the environmental impact of our work is an key mission for White Horse Contractors. We continue to investigate and introduce environmental mitigation measures and regularly work for leading environmental organisations including the Environment Agency, the National Trust, and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.


    We are accredited and certified by key governing and advisory bodies for your peace of mind. These encompass quality management, supply chain, procurement and risk management systems.

    We are members of the Sport and Play Construction Association (SAPCA) and The Grounds Management Association (GMA).
