    Southgate Hockey Club Double Pitch Resurface

    Blakedown Sport & Play are very proud to have been involved with the refurbishment of the two existing pitches at Southgate Hockey Club in Hertfordshire.

    The high specification Edel Triple-T carpet was chosen for both the water-based and sand-dressed pitches which offers a high ball speed with good grip and low friction, ideal for competition level hockey.

    The Edel Triple T Global standard water-based pitch also had the in-situ rubber shockpad replaced so providing the best playing characteristics possible. New kerbs and drainage channels were also constructed around the pitch.

    The second worn sand-filled pitch was replaced with the Edel Triple T sand-dressed option, providing a multi-use facility so as the club can continue to hire out to local football clubs and teams.

    Blakedown utilised their in-house skills with a design and build scheme for the surrounding pitch areas which included recycling the existing carpet around the club for spectator areas and walkways, and installing high specification paving and decking areas around the clubhouse.

    Charters, Ascot Soft Landscaping

    Blakedown Landscapes have completed soft landscaping works at the prestigious development Charters in Ascot, Berkshire.

    This high profile estate also closely neighbouring Royal Windsor was once a 1920’s Art Deco Grade II listed building, the new landscape therefore had to be in keeping. New shrub beds were created along with extensive tree and shrub planting across the estate.
    Over 200 metres of instant hedging was planted ranging from 1.2m high up to 1.8 high, along the hedging new automatic drip line irrigation was also installed.

    Finally the construction of a bespoke metal screen enclosing two of the new properties was installed; the metal trellis fixings were designed by Blakedown with the unique trellis designed by Enplan Architects. Further to this over 40 bespoke planters were built and planted giving a privacy screen to the communal areas.

    The works also include 12 months maintenance.
