Another successful MoonWalk London

Over 10,000 MoonWalkers gathered on Clapham Common Event Site last Saturday to raise money for Breast Cancer Research.¬†¬† The big pink tent on the Common was the start and finish point for half and full marathon walking routes through London.¬† The event raised over ¬£6million in 2018 and it looks like this success will be repeated in 2019. With all those feet and the rain which fell during the build and break periods for the event you might expect to see signs of extensive impact.¬† On the whole the site is looking good as the photo below shows.¬† There were 3 key areas where we saw damage and 2 areas where due to the rain surface mud has dried over the grass.¬† These should over the coming days and with the expected rain and with footfall event out the surface and wash away the surface dirt to allow the grass to return.   However, there is still work to be done on the area where new grass has not spread to create dense coverage along side the jobs to be done to reinstate the site post MoonWalk. Friday 17th May ¬† – Lambeth Landscapes will begin to fill the tent peg holes (fingers cross the rain doesn’t get in the way)     Monday 20th May – Vertidraining – Lambeth Landscapes will undertake a close tine deep vertidrain – this is where the length of the tines is 215mm rather than 175 and they are placed 2/3 inches apart rather than 5.¬† This will give a more comprehensive coverage at greater depth.¬† We do this to de-compact the ground...

Winterville Reinstatement Update

We want to provide a further update to local park users and residents about the reinstatement works following Winterville. On the 22nd February Lambeth Events, Lambeth Landscapes and Winterville organisers met onsite to review progress. Due to ongoing wet weather the 22nd February was the  first day Lambeth Landscape were able to use machinery.  Prior to this day they had been working as best they could without using the tractor or vehicles.  Slitting is now being carried out to spread and level out the top dressing as well as aerate the ground. This process pulls out any debris on the ground which is then removed by hand.   The Landscapes Team also begun to chain harrowing to further level out the area including the entrance. There are three separate areas that remain too wet and ground too soft for machinery to work on.  There is a clear improvement on the middle section and the left side (from vehicle entrance) where the ground is level and a lot of grass is coming back. Furthermore the entrance from Long Road to the site has now been jet washed.  The fence line was brought in last week in two sections. The plan is to bring the fence line in much further, by the end of next week, whilst keeping the three areas that require further work fenced off. This is subject to weather conditions which impact on ability to carry out work. The rate of which the grass will re-grow is dependent on the weather. It is anticipated that most of the site will naturally grow back however in the spring the Landscapes...
