Project: Decompaction in the Royal Parks
Client: Royal Parks
Contractor: Terrain Aeration
Following popular events over the winter, Terrain Aeration has been helping the ground to recover in the capital's Royal Parks.
As part of the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, a temporary ice rink was in action from the first week of December to the beginning of January. Under contract to White Horse Contractors, Terrain Aeration spent three weeks treating compaction caused by the weight of ice on turf before turning its attention to Green Park.
Armed with two Airforce Scamper Terralift machines and the original Airforce - and under contract to Enterprise - the firm set about relieving compaction caused by temporary buildings and generator lorry parking.
Enterprise project manager Andy Grover said: "We have a policy to keep the parks looking their best in the summer for the benefit of the thousands of visitors. To do that we need to attend to all our maintenance in early spring. We have employed Terrain Aeration to treat a heavily trafficked area in Green Park as well as two other sites."
