Each and every thing happening in this world are based on science,and how can you imagine that cricket will be different from this.
Cricket pitches are manufactured by taking various factors in to consideration.
1) Ground on which pitch is to be prepared. If land is of sandy in nature then full sand is to be replaced with soft mud. If surface is not flat then it is to be made flat.There is one cricket pitch in Chail, Himachal Pradesh which has made by flattening/leveling the hill top and this is the highest pitch in the world having an elevation of 2444 meters above sea level, built in 1893.
2) If the land is soft, it is to be hardened by rolling it again and again.
3) If it is dry, it is to be watered, and if it is wet or damp it is to be dried.
4) For firmness, grass is to be grown on the pitch so that its roots will bind the mud together, and it will not be eroded. If grass is more, it will be more bouncy, then we need to cut the grass as we don't need more bouncy pitches. If we remove the grass totally, then the pitch will become baldy and the speed will be more.
5) If grass is very less and if most of the grass is removed then the pitch will break early and the pitch will help spinners.
We have to use all these techniques and Science and prepare pitches as per requirement.
I think you have got the answer for your question.
Have a nice day.
