Field Update: August 19, 2016

The construction of the new turf field at Somerset Elementary is currently underway. It has been a busy couple of days, and the following milestones have been reached:

Somerset Field August 18– Stone bed top dressed and ready for fabric;
– Fencing complete and field secure;
– Soft play areas top dressed and ready for use; and
– Limits of Disturbance stabilized and mulched.

The fabric delivery and installation is expected to start next week. If all goes smoothly over the next few weeks, the field should be ready for use when the kids return from the Labor Day holiday on September 6th.   Ground cover and tree planting will follow later during more optimal planting conditions in late October/early November.
