Whitgift School Sports Pitch Renovation

October 2011

In July 2011 Fineturf commenced work at Whitgift School, in South Croydon, on a 20,000m2 playing field levelling and renovation project.

The old surface was removed using a GKB Combinator to a depth of 20mm. The area was left clean and free of debris ready for two passes with a Kuhn Spike Rotavator to break up and loosen the surface.

Following the cultivation of the surface it was rolled, prior to being precision laser levelled using a Blec Laser Grader.

With the surface level the Kuhn Spike Rotavator completed one more pass and the playing field was rolled again afterwards.

Three passes were completed with a Blec Rotor Rake and 25mm of 70/30 rootzone was spread using Fineturf’s custom Sand Spreaders. The rootzone was luted into the prepped surface.

Pre seed fertiliser was applied and the pitch sown using Limagrain MM60 sports seed.

During the project a full irrigation system was also installed with Hunter I-40 sprinklers.
