Wates Construction Playing Field

Completed in

In September we constructed a sports pitch for the new Poplar Farm Primary School in Grantham.

We supplied, spread and laser graded a layer of topsoil on the 5000m2 site to a uniform depth of 175mm. We installed a main drain and silt trap fitted with a sump. Secondary drainage was installed at 4m centres and backfilled with 2/6mm washed gravel and 175mm of sport sand. A custom built trench compaction wheel consolidated the sand.

The final surface was lightly cultivated and a pre turf fertiliser applied at 50g/m2. Limagrain MM60 sports seed was sown at 50g/m2.
