Primary Drainage – Installed using a tracked laser grading trenching machine to minimise damage to existing playing surfaces.
Secondary drainage – Slit drainage (sometimes known as sand slitting). This type of drainage is undertaken to allow instant drainage into existing primary drainage systems, therefore minimising the chance of surface water accumulation.
Sandbanding – The Blec Ground Breaker and Sand Master relieve compaction and installs a secondary drainage system of sand bands to link directly to the underground drainage system.
Another method used to relieve compaction is to use a Vertidrainer. This punches holes to aerate the ground and in addition encourages root growth.
Topdressing – The application of topdressing sands assists the surface drainage. Works well when done in conjunction with vertidraining.
Hutton Grammar School – Construction of hard standing permeable road/track for regular use throughout the year to access sports fields.
Hutton Grammar School – Planting of deciduous standard trees adhering to a designated planting scheme to create a screen.
Alston Lane Catholic Primary School – An area of land was transformed into an environmental area for the Children to use. This was achieved by levelling and sectioning areas off, installing wood chip paths and creating raised vegetable beds with a wetland area.
