White Horse Contractors are proud to announce the successful construction of a brand-new hybrid turf sports pitch at the Ricoh Arena, home to Premiership rugby legends Wasps.
“A key technical challenge was the shallow depth of the heating and irrigation pipework systems under the pitch. To address this we raised the pitch level, which improved aeration and drainage in the upper rootzone, and utlised a microporous mineral to improve water and nutrient retention.
Through this work we enabled the new pitch to bed in faster, ensuring we hit the critical deadline, while allowing the grass to develop a stronger rooting system which will improve the quality of the playing surface and provide a consistently high-quality surface throughout the season.”
