Turn hardscape surfaces into lush grass
The Capillary Hydroponics system moves fertilized water between the two sections for subsurface irrigation and oxygenation.
When the water moves and enters or exits the pores of the rootzone material, the gas exchange increases greatly, by up to 6.000%.
Evaporation is kept at a minimum and water savings are up to 85% and still the system drains any amount of rainfall.
The patented Capillary Material ensures a perfectly flat and level base beneath the rootzone, which is crucial for the functioning of a hydroponic system.

Because Capillary Hydroponics allows the grass to be grown in a very open medium, the drainage capabilities are superior compared to soil-grown grass.
The Capillary Material enables the use of an open growing medium and moves water and nutrients against gravity at the bottom of the rootzone as a result of which the grass develops deep roots. Simultaneously it creates a firmer and drier surface which leads to reduced weeds and disease pressure.
The durability of the Capillary Material ensures the groundwork doesn’t deteriorate over time. The porosity of the Capillary Material lets fluids sift through but particles won’t migrate into subsequent layers, or eventually into the drainage and irrigation systems at all.
By circulating the water in the moving water table before distributing it, it automatically heats up the water and, by extension, the ground. Additionally, using the stored solar-energy in the sub-soil, the temperature in the root-zone can be raised in winter. In the summer, high temperatures will be lowered in the root-zone.
Water is moved from one side of the turfgrass area to the other after having circulated through a buried pipe system beneath. The system only uses the sub-soil’s moderate temperatures and requires no other energy than that needed to move the water with an air-lift pump.
