Natural Turf Drainage and their success with AirDrain Agronomic Drainage from Craig Potts at Texas A&M
We were so pleased to receive this letter from Craig Potts of Texas A&M on the success they are experiencing with their AirField System with the AirDrain Agronomic Natural Grass Drainage System on the four natural turf fields at Texas A&M some dating back to 2002, take a look:
For Natural Turf
It was concluded thru a research project conducted at Texas A&M University that irrigation needs can be reduced by using AirField Systems AirDrain. This five year research project was jointly funded by the United States Golf Association and AirField Systems, and was a collaborative effort between Texas A&M University, AirField Systems and the United States Golf Association.
The data from the research showed that the AirField Systems drainage profile provided up to 3 more days of plant available water than a United States Golf Association recommended gravel and sand profile.
Benefits of an AirField System Design include:
up to 3 more days of plant available water stored in the root zone (depending on climate)
Significantly reduces daily irrigation needs (as told to us by our customers)
Healthier turf / stronger root system (as told to us by our customers)
100% Vertical Drainage under the entire playing surface
AirDrain is a 100% recycled copolymer which has the impact modifier “metallocene” added to it for
qualification as a “No Break” plastic, making it able to withstand extreme heat and cold and still maintain
Helps eliminate standing water / simplifies maintenance (as told to us by our customers)
Minimal site disturbance / far less excavation and disposal
Several installation days are saved over a gravel installation
Compact shipping which reduces overall storage and transportation costs
AirDrain System sand profiles create its own almost perched water table
