A brief description of the works is as follows;

  • Removal of 50mm of the turf wicket and sportsfield surfaces.(With assistance from Evergreen Turf P/L)
  • Rotary Hoeing to break up the heavy layer on the outfield.
  • Laser grading the surface of the outfield to a pre-determined shape and grade.
  • Spreading and blending of 1500 tonnes of washed coarse sand.
  • Laser grading the surface again to achieve a fine finish prior to seeding.
  • Scarifying the reduced wicket surface.
  • Spreading locally supplied wicket soil then laser grading and compacting to the desired contour and level.
