Installed drainage systems in athletic fields are the most efficient way of moving water off of a playing surface and out of the soil profile. Fields without installed drainage systems must rely upon surface drainage and internal drainage (downward movement of water into the soil). Surface drainage is highly dependent on the contour of the field and internal drainage is greatly impacted by the soil structure and compaction. Even with ideal conditions, surface drainage and internal drainage are slow processes. Utilizing specialized trenching equipment, Iowa Cubs Sports Turf can install a drainage system on your new or existing athletic surfaces.
