As part of a national drive from The FA, Football Foundation and IOG to improve grass pitches across the country, a HIVE Groundskeepers Community has been launched for groundskeepers to build knowledge, seek expert advice and share expertise.
Anybody can join and use the app to seek advice and guidance on how to improve pitches. There is a wealth of useful guidance on the app, from tips on how to mark a pitch to what form of aeration is best.
The information contained in the links below is being continually updated as new information and knowledge becomes available.
