Following a competitive tendering process, Souters Sports, the UK’s leading crown green construction contractors, were chosen to construct the new bowling green on a former decaying factory site for Budenberg Bowling Club in Broadheath, near Stockport.

The new bowling green, which also sits beside a canal, had previously been situated across the road. As part of a new housing development, the previous bowling green and club house, along with the factory where the new green is now situated, were demolished to make way for a brand new state-of-the art green and club house.

The construction took around seven weeks to complete and also included main and lateral drainage installation, concrete channel installation, green construction, path installation and final surface installation along with a full automated irrigation system to ensure that the green plays to a consistently high standard for players.

During the construction, Souters Sports team of in-house operatives were presented with challenging weather conditions but worked professionally and efficiently to successfully reach the completion of the project on budget in the proposed timescales.

Souters Sports are renowned for their attention to detail when it comes to knowing about fine turf which comes from over 50 years of experience in the sportsturf industry, and it was this experience, along with the use of specialized equipment, which led them to winning the contract.

"From the very first site visit and throughout the whole process, Souters Sports were professional but friendly with a can-do attitude and flexible enough to deal with any issues that cropped up, such as the wet weather we experienced throughout the last 12 months”, said Graham Lloyd, from Bloor Homes, the housing developer.

“In what could only be called horrendous weather conditions at times, Souters Sports managed to complete the work as specified and on time”.

"If you like the Hayter and most of your lawns are large then maybe consider one of the new 22"? That should give you the best of both worlds with them being a wider cut and also quick."

Waste disposal problems

Anyone else having problems finding somewhere to take their waste at the moment? The two council areas I work under have both stopped garden bin collection and closed the tips. Commercial tips are also closed round here. I've got nowhere to store…
