belgrave rec reserve gets droughtproofed

Work is set to begin on a major oval renovation for Belgrave. The works include converting the ground to summer, drought tolerant grasses and improving drainage at the ground.

The old surface will be removed and a new surface constructed then warm season grass will be sown. Warm season grasses require less watering and provide a better quality, longer lasting surface.

The surface needs time to establish so it won’t be able to be used by cricket and football in the short term. However the short term pain will bring long term gains as Belgrave has a more drought tolerant, better quality ground for our community.
