Surface Drainage for Sports Fields



DS Serve are now a recognised verti-drain contractor.  The importance of proper surface and sub-surface drainage and the development of a good overall maintenance plan for sports field drainage will help prevent against waterlogging and general poor states of repair. Both of these will save money, provide better participant enjoyment, avoid weeks and months when the pitch is unplayable, and add to the life of the field. Installing a sub-surface drainage system in an existing sports field can be necessary for poorly drained natural grass pitches, which can be massively affected by inclement weather. With our experience and expertise, we can install a sub-surface drainage system so that you can still offer a natural pitch or we can install a 4G Artficial Grass with a sub-surface drainage system in place to replace a poorly drained natural grass pitch.


An ideal playing surface is soft enough to give bounce to the players legs, has no wet or bare areas, has few weeds in it, presents no danger from parts of the drainage or irrigation system, and has no stones or other hard objects on it.

All of these points can be achieved by good drainage.


DS Serve's Sports Field Solutions team can correct your poor field drainage:

1. Precision Laser grading
2. High-percolation rate sands for soil profile
3. Vertical under-drains (verti-draining & spiking)
4. Catch basin storm drains

Proper drainage to a field improves the overall playing surface and will make your ground a safer place to compete. It also limits the number of weather conditions that can cancel game play and budget spent on alternative venues.


Speaking at a school fortunate to have benefited from a football foundation fund, Caroline Dineage MP said: “The more access to high-quality facilities that our youth have, the better chance our community stands of living a healthy and active lifestyle for generations to come."


Paul Thorogood, Chief Executive of the Football Foundation, said: "The Football Foundation is dedicated to improving sports sites across the country with investment from our funding partners – the Premier League, The FA, and the Government, via Sport England."

DS Serve's reputation

Dear Sir,
I am writing to thankyou and to thank the young man (I think his name was Bobbie), who responded to a call made by myself on Wednesday evening on the 20th July concerning a blown flexi-hose to hot tap in bathroom.
Although unable to complete the job, he made sure all was left safe and made arrangements to complete the job with one of your plumbers the following morning.
Both were very polite and helpful and completed the job to a very high standard.I will certainly recommend your company to anyone that is in need of assistance with plumbing etc.
Your Sincerely
Mrs. V. Worcester, Chatham

 

The involvement of DS Serve, at the original behest I believe of the developers themselves, has brought some much needed expertise, and indeed corroboration to some extent in underlining the issues that need addressing...with the willingness to accept DS Serve's initiative, we now appear to be going in the right direction...
Regards,
Mike
Mike is the Technical Manager at one of our facilities management clients.
