The Vancouver School Board decided to upgrade the playfield and surrounding yard at École Laura Secord Elementary School and was looking for a durable natural grass playfield. The school has a large population relative to its land base and the field receives a high level of use.
Yardworks presented the Fibrelok High Performance Rootzone System as a solution. The system is designed to have excellent drainage characteristics while providing a stable footing for players and promoting healthy turfgrass growth. It is based on standards from ASTM and the USGA.
Parameters were agreed upon by with the landscape architect and owner that would ensure the desired properties were met. Yardworks had test batches blended and complete particle size analysis and physical properties testing done at a fully accredited laboratory.
The product was blended to specification and delivered to site to meet the contractor`s schedule. Yardworks performed on-site infiltration testing and also followed up with specific recommendations for fertilization and maintenance.
