Grounds and Gardens

Effective and affordable drainage in any conditions.

Capiphon™ drainage strips and pipe can be installed easily regardless of the ground conditions. Simple installation and minimal construction with hand-held tools provides an accessible and affordable solution to most drainage issues.

New School Lawn

The construction of a new wing at a school presented the perfect opportunity to createa central lawn area – great in theory, but in practice the site was steep and built on hard unfractured rock.

In traditional landscaping methods, it would be necessary to excavate at least 300 mm of rock to apply suitable drainage for a healthy lawn – expensive and time consuming!

The architect found out about Capiphon™ strips from a landscaping consultant. He was able to allow for a much shallower excavation because the flat structure of the belt strips enable a well-drained and healthy lawn to be grown on a lower volume of topsoil.

Draining established gardens effectively

For a garden that regularly floods or pools from rain, installing deep and wide trenches can be disruptive and destructive, needing heavy machinery and great expense to repair.

Because Capiphon™ strips and pipe solutions can be installed in many cases with hand-held tools, this garden was beautifully restored without major disruption.

The capillary surfaces of Capiphon™ products siphon water away from the area. Significant volumes of water can be moved efficiently, resulting in a clean, dry surface even when it rains.
