Cricket Wicket Renovation
Fineturf have extensive knowledge in the construction methodology of a successful cricket square. End of season renovation is essential in restoring a worn wicket and should be timed correctly to ensure its playability for the following season.
A renovation would typically involve the following:
Surface removal – level playing surface, remove annual meadow grass, weaker/older ryegrass plants and thatch and plane saddled ends
Graden – deep scarification for root pruning and lateral growth
Drag matting / luting – loam and seed are dragged evenly to ensure final levels are true
Deep tine aeration – relieve compaction, encourage new root growth and improve surface drainage
