Project Profile:

Texas A & M Soccer Field

Project Summary

The reasons Texas A&M chose the Driancore2 system over conventional sand based field systems were the many benefits they saw in test plots at Oklahoma State University: a ten year warranty; lower cost of installation; 300 percent greater root mass, better water retention and superior drainage. The Draincore2 system was designed to out perform all of its competitors in every single facet of performance. In the Texas A&M University installation, the Draincore2 system has met or exceeded all of the Athletic Department’s expectations.
