CRICKET SQUARES AND BOWLING GREENS
We have been involved in the Design and Construction of cricket squares and outfields for a number of years. We have constructed school standard, club standard and have also built some county cricket standard wickets and practice wickets.
We are happy to be involved in the initial planning of any new wicket and advise as to which type of square and cricket loam would be most suitable. We can also source independent expert advice if required.
The key to a good square is that it should be level along the line of play and that the surface should be firm to provide consistent bounce and pace.
The cricket square has germinated and is ready for it's first cut.
There are two types of Bowling Green a Flat Green or Crown Green. The basic construction is similar both require a smooth and uniform bowling surface. Most greens are constructed with a gravel carpet for drainage with a perimeter drain leading to an outfall.
Whether it is a Crown or Flat green it is imperative the layers of the construction materials are built up evenly to ensure the green has uniform characteristics in the way it plays, drains and grows.
