Camden Borough Council Soft Landscaping

April 2012

In April 2012, Fineturf completed over 10,000m2 of turf and seed renovation in the Camden Borough of London. The project was spread across a number of sites including Russell Square, St Martin’s Garden, Euston Station Gardens and Tavistock Square. The park areas were in need of rejuvenation, prior to the Olympics, when they will be used by the media and as part of the Olympic torch route.

The Russell Square turf works included cultivation with a Blecavator and ground preparation with a pedestrian rotor rake before final ground preparation, by hand. The surface was installed using big roll turf.

Further work in Russell Square and 3 other sites included deep tine aeration, with 19mm solid tines and overseeding using a Vredo disc seeder and Limagrain MM50 grass seed.
