Wringing Out The Water

There isn’t any one secret to keeping a field in good repair; rather, regular upkeep and proactive care will ensure a better playing surface over time. Like the athletes who play on it, staying in shape is the key to long-term health for the field.

    We are aware of only one panel drain manufacturer that will sell it’s panel drain without a geotextile wrap for use in natural turf (for competative pricing reasons). Having drained thousands of fields with our fabric wrapped product we would never consider giving up the improved performance and longevity of the system to save a few pennies per foot.
