Case Studies

Natural History Museum

Description

We were lucky enough to work on the grounds of the Natural History Museum, removing the existing lawn due to damage from the ice rink that they install over the festive period. We prepared the ground using a Five Tonne Digger and a Tractor Mounted Stone Burier, removing what was left of the old turf and preparing the earth underneath.

One of the main concerns was that the ground was extremely saturated from the ice rink. To overcome this, we supplied and installed over 50m3 of Sandy Loam Topsoil to create the final level. The area was first graded off using the digger to create a flatter surface, we then passed over the area using the stone burier, turning over the ground to a depth of 500 mm. This ensured that the turf we then laid would get the best start and continue to grow healthily.

Once we had created a level surface, we rolled out 2040m2 of Rolawn Medallion Turf. This was installed over a period of 3 days, being sure to leave the finished project looking sleek and professional.

We spent extra time and care to make sure that the preparatory works were completed to as high a standard as possible. This ensures that any new lawn has the best start possible.

We were limited to only accessing the site prior to 10am, meaning that we had to overcome this logistical challenge when organising the delivery of materials and machinery. Timing was also key when carrying our this project, as we were tasked with completing the project within 5 days. We were proud to achieve this, whilst also meeting the very high specification.

We completed this project to our usual high standards, taking all site restrictions into consideration. An exciting project, delivering our loyal customers exceptional results.
