We're expecting a tinge of green to be coming through at Martin Luckie Park in Berhampore this week - soon to be the practice ground of the Wellington Phoenix Football Club.
Recently we’ve been dimple seeding the first of the two fields, having spread 2,000 tonnes of sand (and counting) to form a 100mm sand carpet. The ground will be ready for the Phoenix to swing into action in Spring.
Mexteds has already installed primary drainage and irrigation, before planing the surfaces, laser grading and sand slitting.
Playing fields at Karori Park have had a drainage upgrade over the autumn and early winter as we gravel banded the entire six hectare park for Wellington City Council.
We’ve also installed primary drainage and irrigation into the new #5 cricket field.
Come Spring we’ll be back to spread sand, helping to protect the gravel bands and keep the secondary drainage functioning well without contamination from surrounding clay particles.
