Moss, Weed & Root Treatments

It is vital that you have your tennis court moss treated at least once a year to help combat moss, even if your tennis court it is not frequently used or is a new installation. Moss always forms on tennis courts and blocks the drainage, makes it unsafe underfoot and ultimately results in the breaking up of the surface area.

You can help prevent moss taking root by blowing any leaves or other debris from the surface on a regular basis, by cutting away any overhanging tree branches or hedges, and allowing air and sunlight to reach the court. A light annual or bi-annual wash-off of the court is also recommended, however please make sure this is carried out by a tennis court expert or more damage than good can be done.

Weeds

Weeds can grow practically anywhere and the perimeter of your tennis court is unfortunately no exception. Weeds generally penetrate onto a tennis court due to a lack of border management and, unless dealt with properly, will begin to extend to other areas of the surface breaking up those areas of the court.

Roots

Roots emerge from below tennis courts and raise the surface creating an uneven playing area and ultimately breaking it up. Absolute Tennis Courts can cut out the roots, repair the damaged surface areas and carry out further preventative works such as installing a root barrier along the exterior or interior section of the tennis court where the issue is prevailing.  

Tennis Court Root Damage

If not prevented and maintained, weeds and roots will contribute to the breaking up of your tenis court surface.

Inserting a root barrier is a favourable option to the halting of external tree roots onto your tennis court.
