Last week, you may have seen that the Kingsholm posts were taken down, and soon to be replaced by a set of new ones - IRB standard, identical to those at Twickenham Stadium and now it's the turn of the hallowed Kingsholm to go through a renovation.
"Basically, the posts have been removed and we have put the sockets in ready for the International standard posts which are requested by the IRB ready for Rugby World Cup 2015.
"After we did that, we've done a bit of renovation on the pitch where we have taken 60 tonne of top-dressing and existing pitch surface over seeded with 25 bags of rye grass, verti-drained and fertilized.
"We killed off all the grass with weed killer, and stripped the surface off and now we let Mother Nature take over and watch the grass grow back.
"Hopefully within three weeks now, with a bit of rain and irrigation we can get mowing and preparing a surface ready for the Premiership Rugby 7s in July."
The final home game of the Aviva Premiership season saw a fantastic looking playing surface for the game with London Irish but why has the grass had to be removed?
"It looked good and green but I would say 40% of the grass in there was annual meadow grass which is shallow rooting which doesn't give you a good enough pitch and it needed over seeding.
"Hopefully by the start of the season we should have a pitch which is somewhere between 90-100% rye grass which gives you the best root structure and the best pitch. It will hopefully ensure that the pitch stays stable throughout the season."
Last season's summer ground work saw an updated drainage system installed and Balmer is happy with how that has gone coupled with the new installations around the ground.
"We're happy with the way that the drains have worked this year, hopefully that will continue. We've put in some astro-turf alongside the South stand from the tunnel, that's gone on type one hardcore and that will aid drainage on that side of the ground.
With Rugby World Cup 2015 fast approaching, there are only a few minor plans afoot to make any more changes to Kingsholm before the big event arrives.
"Hopefully, we won't plan to touch too much. Perhaps doing a light dressing of seed and the grass, just to see how the winter reacts. The only other thing we are planning on doing is putting a walkway and electronic provisions for the new LED electronic advertising boards in front of The Shed.
"We are hoping to get that all ready and set up and ready for the start of the new season. So a busy summer ahead!"
With the regulations for the Rugby World Cup to be met at Kingsholm, the changes are all being made in good time, one of which is a slight alteration to the size of the playing surface.
"Dimensions wise, we've put the sockets in for the new posts, the pitch will now be 95 metres long and for our season next year, the pitch will be 70 metres wide. Then we will move in a metre either side to put it to 68 metres for Rugby World Cup."
