About TurfCareBlog

Welcome, 

To the Home of TurfCareBlog

TurfCareBlog.com was started back in 2017 but under a different name, a grounds person(me) just blogging about his everyday life as a cricket grounds person.

In 2019 TurfCareBlog included other sports and opened the doors for any grounds person or greenkeeeper to blog. 

The aim was the creation a community that connects, shares and learns together via blog writing and in doing so gives a community a voice.

Myself and the community publish around four blogs a month, we have social media groups totally 12,0000 followers. 

We get between 8,000-12,000 plus website views a month, depending on the time of year.

Take a two minute guide tour around our site – https://youtu.be/UIBReMg7tk8 

My dream is to make the blog financially sustainable so it’s around for the long term, so I am unashamed to have a commercial element which will helps us in our goal.
