Field Update: August 26, 2016

Somerset Elementary’s sneak peek on the morning of August 26th offered not only the opportunity to visit the classrooms and meet the teachers, but also a chance for parents and students to look out the windows at the fabulous new turf field nearing the end of construction!Somerset Field August 26

The fabric was delivered on Tuesday of this past week (thank you to all our neighbors for their patience during this process!) and the bulk of the fabric installation has now been completed. Placement of the organic cork infill and grooming is scheduled for next week, and 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.
