Summary: To prevent rainwater from creating a worn rut around the perimeter of the golf club house, DC2 was used to stabilize the turf and allow the water to pass through the filter fabric without causing any erosion. The cart path ends where the hard surface met the grass was reinforced with GP2 to prevent compaction and bare dirt areas. The turf rooted very quickly into the sand filled rings.
