Capillary Hydroponics

Capillary Hydroponics is a new system that offers a solution to many of the problems faced by cities worldwide

Water management


The Material has superior drainage capabilities and reduces risk of flooding as the system acts as a water-bank for rainfall

Strain on day water-systems

Less strain in cities as the system rapidly drains heavy rainfall and stores the water to be used for irrigation.


Water consumption is up to 85% less compared to overhead irrigation


Poor air quality in cities

Grass binds air pollution and consumes CO2 through photosynthesis

High temperatures in urban areas

Lowers temperature when shifting hardscaped surface to grass

Noise pollution

Grass significantly lowers noise in urban areas

Environmental friendly

Long-lasting solutions

Our turfs have an expected lifespan of +50 years

Over fertilization

No leakage of pesticides and fertilizers, and up to 50% less fertilizers used.


Lower emission than soil-grown grass and helps with carbon sequestration

Why Capillary Hydroponics

A sustainable growth of strong grass

The Capillary Hydroponics system is efficient and ensures that the grass grows stronger with deeper roots, providing outstanding wear, shade, disease, drought and heat stress-tolerance, excellent tensile strength and faster establishment. All, with less maintenance, water consumption and use of fertilizers and pesticides.

A vision of greener cities

A sustainable choice

Hydroponic grass has a lower carbon footprint

Compared to other soil-grown grass and artificial turf

Water management

Automated collection and distribution of water

Naturally collect rainwater and decrease risk of flooding or overload on sewage and day water systems in cities

The Hydroponic Basins act as a natural aid to heavy precipitation events and help unload the burden of other water systems. Collecting and reusing the water helps decrease the water consumption.

Naturally collect rainwater

Research and reference project: Water consumption

Studies indicate 85% less water consumption

Several installations over many years prove significant water savings compared to traditional overhead irrigation systems.

At MSU and the Hancock Turfgrass Research Center, a multiple year study with 6 identical putting-greens was started in 2022. 3 of the greens are built with the USGA variable root-zone depth method and 3 are built with the Capillary Hydroponics system. Initial results are very promising and indicate similar levels of water savings previously recorded.

85% less water consumption

Enclosed natural biofilter

Strain, sift and filter water automatically

Using an enclosed system with natural sand and underground basins, it filters all water naturally from air and water pollution and then collects it to be reused

By using subsurface irrigation and distribution of fertilizers and pesticides in the water there is no leaching of harmful substances or microplastics into adjacent soil, surrounding water streams or ground water.

Life Cycle Analysis - LCA

Hydroponic turfs for a lower carbon footprint

With a lower maintenance and less need for renovation the environmental impact of a hydroponic turf is significantly less

According to the LCA Analysis, hydroponic lawns have the lowest annual maintenance and lower need for renovation. They also have lower consumption of water and fertilizers, reducing the stress on the ground, drinking water supply and risk of eutrophication. These features make hydroponic lawns a more sustainable and beneficial alternative to traditional grass lawns.
