As the grass cutting season begins, new compost bays need to be made, so the team set about the task. The area is levelled and cleared ready for the hardcore to be added to form the new base.
Over the next two days the ten tonnes of hardcore, that has been delivered, is transported across the college to where it is needed.
Each trailor load is then spread across the area to form the new base using shovells and landscape rakes.
Once all the hardcore has been spread and levelled, Smudge then uses a whacker plate to compress all the hardcore into a firm base.

All that remains is the final cementing. This area will give easy access to the ride on mowers to empty their grass cuttings and, over the years, will be mixed with shredded paper, leaves and hebaceous material to create our valuable compost.
