Sat in those seats for an early euro tie when the main stand was closed...they are odd seats. If you sit normally on the seat the goal and far corner are blocked but a slight lean to the side and they come in to view...it is only the very end seat, the 2nd column is fine...

"GrassMaster reinforces a 100% natural grass pitch by vertically inserting 20 million polypropylene (PP) fibres into the soil. The 20 cm long PP fibres are injected by computer-controlled machines, 18 cm deep so 2 cm remains above the surface, in a grid about 2 x 2 cm. The natural grass roots entwine with the fibres and grow deeper and wider, building a stronger and healthier rootzone. The PP fibres above the surface ensure an always even and stable surface. GrassMaster can be installed before seeding, after seeding or on grass sods"

 

 

God help the groundsman who sets the mower height to one centimetre.

I sat in those seats when Sam Nicholson scored  a belter against Hibs.

My view showed no angle at all along the line so that both goal posts were exactly in line.

 

It wasn't until the net bulged that I knew it had gone in.

Am I missing something here...I thought we were ripping out the under-soil heating? Going by the pictures it looks like we've removed the grass and gone straight to laying what looks like gravel?

Sand maybe?

Perhaps we're just not bothering digging down to save time and installing the sand, new heating and other layers on top of what's there?

A pitch 3 feet higher than the bottom rows? Novel idea.

I vaguely remember noticing the old Trafford pitch  (for example) is a fair bit above ground floor in the stand, not 3 feet right enough, maybe 8 inches IIRC.

Looking again I can see it is gravel and that there's sand to come though, and it's clearly going on top of what's there just now.

Pictures of excavations would have been good

 

Maybe that work has been done but seems very quick

Gravel - sand  then soil seems normal to me for laying a bed for a pitch. I assume they dug down and replaced any knackered pipe work and didn't need to do a complete renewal. Just a guess, otherwise if it's going in now you'd expect to see the existing feed pipes poking out the ground for connecting the new grid? Just conjecture on my part though as it's not remotely in my field of expertise.

To compare novoman's photo from the 15th May to the one Hearts shared on twitter today (look at the concrete slabs, quite a lot filled in). Can't be long until they put the grass down. Can only assume they did any work to the undersoil heating before the 15th May.

C6D4395E-BA80-4EC3-A554-B2EE83D8835D.jpegTh undersoil heating is under the sheets. Will be long pipes under the sheeting and the green things spread evenly out are the pop up sprinklers I would think.

Will it definitely have pop up sprinklers (something that we didn't previously have)?

 

Do you think there was any scope to widen the pitch (even if just by a couple for yards).  I know the stadium is tight but I still reckon they could widen slightly and loose a bit more track. Especially in front of the main stand.

 

Will they be seeding it or laying new turf and then injecting the fibre's?  I assume it will be true given the timescales.

Is that not face about arse?

 

  The drains should be bedded into gravel then a layer of membrane over the top before you put the sand down. That helps stop them from clogging up.  

 

   Does anybody know how they fixed the subsurface and drainage problem or are we being ripped off again?

Ffs why do people just assume it's getting done all wrong because of half arsed guess work from a few photos. 

Maybe the club should ask KB before doing any work to make sure it gets done right.

Looks arse about face to me, they've planted the Grass at the bottom, I also suspect with little foundation and knowledge that they've connected the drainage to the stink pipes. All signed off by Levein of course. 

 

I'm away to slit my wrists for the second time today. This SHAMBLES can't continue ffs.
