Project Profile:

Springhill College Golf Course

Project 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.

This is another location where the GP2 was used in the grass at the end of the concrete path. You can see it looks really nice and the grass is healthy.
Permeable Paving was installed at Springhill College Golf Course in Mobile, Alabama, using Grasspave2.
The long roots show how deeply the grass grew in the sand filled rings in just a few weeks.
Erosion Control was achieved at Springhill College Golf Course in Mobile, Alabama, using Draincore2.
Now the club house has a very nice well-manicured grass border around the perimeter. There is no erosion from the roof stormwater. This is a simple solution to making a design look high quality.
