Hybrid Pitch

We let an orchestra on the pitch just before we were due to play. That tells you everything.

 

The orchestra thing is not the direct reason for the state of the pitch, it may have caused it indirectly but the fact is that we could probably have a concert on the pitch next week and no lasting damage would be done to the pitch. (if it was perfect now)

 

The club did ask the manufacturers if it would be ok and were told that it would.

 

The speculation is that having the concert meant that we did not do the proper maintenance on the pitch.

I seriously hope so but even still, that’s a whole year of owning a barely useable pitch following a big investment on the pitch. Not really acceptable at a professional football club.

It's a pretty big positive tbf. If we can't get it back to how it was last season at minimal cost and effort then happy days. It was like a carpet and I'm sure we'll have learned lessons from it.

If the problem is as Cruikshank says then it is an easy fix in the summer, the fibres should be fine just now it's the grass that's the issue.

Not sure about the minimal cost thing though as Wolves say it is a six figure sum to take the top surface off and replace.

Hearts and easy fix in the same sentence now that's encouraging. Good times ahead hopefully.

I still don’t get why it couldn’t be done because of the concert. Wouldn’t it normally been done prior to the first home match, which was prior to the concert? 🤷🏼‍♂️

Good point, no idea then.

 

Maybe Budge didn't fancy putting it on top of a brand new surface then took a chance that the pitch would survive without being resurfaced and it's backfired in her puss.

It's money we'd be spending anyway as going by the Wolves article it should be done every year anyway. Minimal as in, not more than we should have been expecting.

Some seem to think Wolves spend a six figure sum on maintaining their hybrid pitch every year. That’s not what the article said - they spent a one off six figure sum back in 2010 mainly on the subsoil and drainage for their traditional pitch.

Their hybrid pitch was installed in 2017.

Regarding the mosaic, it looks more like something leeching through from behind. I'd have hoped the club sought advice on conservation from HIstoric Environment Scotland or the national museum to get this right. If not, I'd rather they approached them now than just take well meaning, but possibly not best advice from tilers (honestly no offence intended).

 

As for the pitch...I'm thinking that's going to be 50% grass free by end of Feb. It's certainly getting worse.

That’s not what they said in the article published on here Grayco.

Scarifying the surface and re-seeding is not a six figure cost.

I'd be surprised if there was just a switch that the groundsman turned on or off to operate the undersoil heating. 

Surely it would be part of the pitch monitoring system and would come on automatically as required. 

 

Not to say there couldn't be a fault in that system and it has been on when it should be off!

Same!

I'm remaining sceptical on the maintenance angle.

The "skimming" seems to be 6-7mm effectively scarifying the top layer. Across a football pitch of 100m * 64m you are only talking 45 m3. This equates to about 30 tons. That's very small beer.

Compared that to the figures that went into the pitch.

 

The new Tynecastle Park pitch in numbers:

17,000,000 hybrid insertions
40,000 km of yarn
27 km of undersoil heating pipes
1500 tonnes of gravel
26 irrigation sprinklers
4600 tonnes of sand


Looking at the video of the Toro top surface machine it's a couple of hours to do a football pitch, replacing with new top dressing would be about the same. There is 2 months to do this from the end of the season to the start of the next and another month till the concert.

Another question would be why would a hybrid top surface so desperately need to be deep scarified and replaced from a newly seeded pitch just 10 months old? If it is to remove surface thatch I'm sceptical too that such an amount of thatch could develop in such a short time, the pitch is regularly mowed, brushed, loose material removed. Why would missing out this maintenance make the pitch deteriorate so precipitously at the end of November?

I certanly don't have answers just questions. I'm interested as an old boy keeping his lawn under control at home, past involvement in a cricket club which meant mowing, scarifying, tining, fertilizing and any other mainternance, and involvement in club football and trying to solve pitch drainage. In all these amateur cases the grass keeps on growing and growing! 😁

Would have thought year two or year three before carrying out such a procedure to allow the new surface to establish itself.

Let's be honest. We're all just speculating, and uninformed speculation at that. It just seems to me more likely that something happened in Oct/Nov causing the problem rather than something NOT happening in May causing the problem 6 months later.

For what it’s worth I used to be a member at Prestonfield golf club and theu would hollow tine the greens in the winter every year, to allow the grass room to grow. Not sure how that would work with a hybrid pitch though, some sort of that surely needs done every year if it’s 95% grass though?

I think they do that to aid drainage in winter and to stop a fungus from forming underneath the green surface, rather than to aid grass growth. There's been a couple of winter greens this year and like last year they are using the two practise par 3's and taken the 2nd and 13th out of action for a rest. The practise par 3 greens are remarkably firm and durable compared to the main greens in the winter though!

Good stuff, I should’ve mentioned the fertiliser they put on a couple of times a year that the ladybirds love. They seed it too so new grass grows. Thanks for the Info, hope the club is doing well.

I sit down that way and there's definitely noticeable looped lines down there and it's not always the exact spot where the warm ups are done. The warm ups won't help of course but it doesn't feel like it's solely down to them. I don't think the grass has been burnt though, I don't really know what it is.

A busy November where it got used four times, but presumably trained on too. However it is a hybrid, it can handle that. There was a similar usage over the same period last year and it was fine the entire season. I posted this earlier in the thread where I went back further before the women's cup final:

Forty Thousand KM’s of yarn?

Could well be correct. 25,000 miles (40,000 KM’s) just seems a bit OTT. 
40,000 Mtrs seems more likely but WTF do I know about hybrid pitches 🤷‍♂️

Lifted from the Hearts website article on the pitch

I think the 17m insertions is the biggie but (I think!) it works out every 4cm2 at about 23 cm each, the news article says 18cm below and 2 cm above so it roughly adds up.

Could well be correct. 25,000 miles (40,000 KM’s) just seems a bit OTT. 
40,000 Mtrs seems more likely but WTF do I know about hybrid pitches 🤷‍♂️

 

You know as much as 99% of us on here. 😄
