Fineturf have just renovated Empingham Cricket Square. Based in Rutland, Empingham had contracted Fineturf for the first time and we were glad of the opportunity to work alongside another local cricket club. The square was scarified in 2 directions using a Graden. Scarification removes organic matter such as thatch and moss allowing air into the surface and encouraging new growth. The Graden leaves rows of arisings on the square which were cleared. Limagrain MM50 wicket seed, a 100% ryegrass mixture, was applied at 60gm2. Following this, 6T of loam was spread and finally 6:5:18 Autumn fertiliser applied at 40gm2.
“Fineturf ‘Koro’ planed the ends of our nine pitch square at Empingham CC. Although Empingham CC is a small cricket club it was clearly apparent that the care, attention and end product was a similar professional service that any first class cricket club would have been afforded. The team, led by Stuart and the MD, Simon Hutton for part of the job, provided a service that exceeded what was expected.”
