One of our schools in Christchurch requested brand new football goal posts, and Hants & Dorset Gardening Services was up to the task.
Working in schools always require extra attention to Health & Safety, and it’s with safety in mind that we installed new goal posts sockets, adding an extra football training field for the pupils at a local school in Christchurch.
Starting with official FIFA approved sockets, the same used by the 2015 Under 20 FIFA World Cup, we measured precisely the position of our sockets.
Before starting to dig, we carefully remove the top layer of grass, to ensure minimum disturbance to the field around the new socket, which can affect the game.
The dimensions of the hole are to comply with all Health & Safety requirements, ensuring the pupils have safe and sturdy play equipment for years to come.
After positioning the sockets, the hole is partially filled with concrete, offering a solid basis for the goal posts.
The top layer of soil and lawn is then replaced, and the field ready to play as soon as concrete is set.
