Healthy Growth at Passmores Academy

Added: 15th November 2014

A recent site visit to Passmores Academy - where comprehensive earthworks and the installation of the Turfdry Drainage System using Hydraway Sportsdrain transformed the school's formerly 'twisted' and poorly draining field into sports facilities to be proud of - revealed that the sward establishment has progressed well since the seeding in May.

This has been helped by the school's receptiveness to Turfdry's advice regarding the ongoing maintenance required to successfully see the project through to completion, and provide the pupils of Passmores with top class sports facilities to inspire a new generation of young athletes.

During the site visit, it was excellent to not only recieve positive feedback from the school with regards to the continued development of a healthy sward, but also regarding the performance of the drainage system. Scott Alderson - the school's Community Facilities Development Officer - stated: “With the recent rainy weather, we’ve really been able to see how well the drainage is working: whilst the undrained areas of grass are soft and muddy, the field itself remains firm underfoot, and in excellent condition.”
