Beaver Stadium, this storied field, has had many renovation projects over the years, but the entire playing surface has not been renovated since 2005. Ten years and five straight, rainy home games in a row; Beaver Stadium was ready for a makeover. Working for four days, our crews were able to strip the old surface off with the Koro Topmaker and haul it off-site with our dump carts. The next step was to laser grade the field to the correct crown and the field was then finished with thick cut Kentucky Bluegrass Big Roll sod. Thick cut sod was used to ensure that the rolls would stay in place when the field was used only two weeks later!
