Merseyside Pitches Uplifted By Souters Sports

Liverpool, a city famed for its football, is making a big effort to raise the quality of public pitches controlled by Liverpool City Council. This summer, end of season renovation work began on 90 of them across the city, conducted by Souters Sports, one of the UK’s leading natural sportsturf contractors.

Souters was chosen as sub-contractor to Glendale, the largest green maintenance provider in the UK. It was the latest project in an on-going joint venture between Glendale and the City Council to lift and maintain the quality of outdoor amenity and sports facilities across the city. Glendale-Liverpool is now in its seventh year of trading.

Over a three-week period Souters provided a range of renovation services to the pitches as required. These included scarifying, top-soiling, sand top-dressing, aerating, deep slitting, selective weed control, and re-seeding. Among the specialist equipment the company used were the Imants Shockwave to improve pitch aeration, and the Vreedo Overseeder.

“It was a very tight working window, and it was essential to maximize the grow-in and establishment of the new swards,” said Colin Parker-Rich, Glendale’s Service Manager in charge of the project.

“We use Souters Sports because we find them, not only 100 per cent professional and competitively priced, but totally flexible in their ability to deliver the kind of quality renovation programme we seek.”

Liverpool’s football pitches have never been greener or in better shape for a new season.

Nick @ NM Garden Services Ltd replied to paul watson's discussion Stihl Hsa 86 overheating
"There is nowhere to screw a grease tube on. That's why you need to take the gearbox cover off and apply grease directly.
 Suggest you take another look at the machine. We know this is correct thing to do as we have 4 of them. "

"This is the battery hsa 86 Nick it only has 2 torx screws holding a plastic casing over the gearbox, the gearbox gets the odd bit of cuttings in which is not ideal as it is not sealed like the petrol ones."

Chinese made equipment

Hi everyone, Personally I would not be buying anything made in China, Because of the covid 19  virus I believe there will be a kickback at chinese products and thus availability of parts. Never mind conspiracy theories, the chinese have covered up…
