Challenge

The Natural History Museum in London has a well-earned reputation for the appearance of its lawns and landscape.

Each year, an ice rink is built on the East Lawn, followed shortly after by a huge marquee housing British Fashion Week. As soon as these events are dismantled, pressure is on to regain the pristine appearance for which the grounds are justifiably renowned.

Solution

Grasslands was contracted to repair the ravages of the events and restore the lawns to their customary excellence without delay.

Weather caused some delays to the preparation work, but in spite of busy traffic conditions and awkward access in Kensington, the lawns were relaid in Rysport turf in big roll format, laid by machine in very quick time.

Outcome

Visitors to the museum even a day or two later would have been none the wiser as to the scenes of devastation that had been evident only a few days before.
