Berkhamstead School Cricket Pitch Renovation
In August, we renovated an existing cricket wicket and constructed a new wicket. During the renovation the existing surface was removed along with a layer of the existing loam. The formation was cultivated and laser graded. New Ongar loam was imported, mixed with the stockpiled loam and spread over the wicket. Final preparation was carried out by hand, fertiliser spread and seed sown.
An existing artificial wicket was removed, the formation raised to be level with the outfield and the area seeded. Adjacent to this removed wicket a new natural wicket was constructed. The formation was excavated, laser graded and Ongar loam spread and consolidated. The wicket was laser graded again, prepped by hand, fertiliser spread and Limagrain MM50 sown.
