We've been working in the Manawatu recently, after Palmerston North City Council decided to upgrade a section of Manawaroa Park. The upgraded area sits between four cricket blocks, doubling as hockey fields in winter.
Last year the area was affected by poor surface drainage caused by bumps and hollows, as this photo by Brendan Hannan of the NZ Sports Turf Institute shows.
We surveyed the area using our Total Station, and designed a cut to fill plan, planing off the top 20mm, importing 260 cu metres of topsoil to bring the levels up, and regrading. We then drilled, dimple seeded and fertilized the fields.
