Sports Turf Management

Gavin Jones Limited manages numerous contracts containing both natural and artificial sports surfaces for many different clients, including; all stadia and pitches for the MOD and Cardiff Metropolitan University, as well as St. John’s (in Leatherhead) where we received an IOG Highly Commended award in 2016 for agronomic advancement.
We are able to renovate any natural turf surface, whether it be via fraze mowing, heavy scarification or koroing. Additionally, we can design and build sports pitch surfaces along with sub surfaces, including primary secondary/drainage and irrigation. Our technical design team can assist with projects form inception through to completion and beyond.

As members of the IOG, we have up-to-the-minute advice to support our service delivery; we also retain a specialist and very experienced installation consultant with many years’ experience of working with top sporting venues and clients.
