Turfdrain is a high performance sports pitch drainage geosynthetic system that is pre-formed and designed to replace traditional pipe and filter stone drainage beneath existing grass sports pitches.

Turfdrain provides high performance drainage capacity with an outer surface that is totally permeable, allowing water to freely enter the Turfdrain.

Turfdrain drainage geocomposite consists of a dimpled plastic core which is completely wrapped in a highly permeable geotextile filter fabric. It is specifically designed to replace traditional methods used for creating drainage channels which utilise perforated pipe and filter stone. The outer textile wrap ensures that fines cannot enter the core, preventing the system from clogging.

Turfdrain is suitable for use in all existing grass surfaces; including playing fields and amenity areas, football, rugby and cricket pitches, lawns and golf course fairways.

Turfdrain is just 25mm wide and can easily be installed in trenches just 35mm wide. This results in less disturbance of the playing surface than encountered with laying pipes and gravel and also less materials to remove from the facility. The slit trenches are backfilled with sharp sand and provide long-term drainage performance. This narrow trench installation technique also means that the playing surface can be put back into use immediately after installation.
