The newly created plateau required high quality and consistent drainage. Initial work on the old agricultural site began with clearing fencing, spraying, and flailing followed by an earthworks operation. Over 4,000 mᶾ of subsoil was cut and filled across the site, before the topsoil was carefully respread across the now levelled plateau. The installation of the primary drainage was completed using our brand-new Mastenbroek 20/15 trencher fitted with GPS system, laying 80mm piping at 5m centres at 450mm depth laterally across the outfield, then backfilled. Perimeter ring drainage was installed at 600mm depth around the circumference of both the cricket outfield and the playing square. The ground was cleared of stones and debris using the stone burying and power harrow machines. Then the secondary drainage was installed at 500mm centres perpendicular to the primary drainage, to ensure optimal drainage performance for the sportsturf pitches.
