Lower the environmental impact of your golf course, horse arena, pitch or city

CapillaryFlow’s proprietary technology enable the construction of greens and spaces with less environmental impact due to less maintenance and water consumption, an increased life length of sand and turfgrass and an enclosed system for distribution of fertilizers and pesticides.

How it works

We help you decrease maintenance, water consumption and the use of harmful chemicals

Wash sand with Capillary Wash Box

Wash sand instead of replacing it

All our solutions are designed and built to help reduce maintenance costs and efforts for sports ground, greens and spaces. For sand we let maintenance crews wash it instead of replacing it with the help of our Capillary Wash Box.

Use nearly 50% less fertilizers with Capillary Hydroponics

Reduction of fertilizers and pesticides

The drainage CapillaryFlow solutions offer help avoid waterlogged surfaces, making grass less prone to diseases and fungicide. Hence, less harmful pesticides need to be used.

By irrigating the surface from below, water consumption is reduced with up to 90 %. Distributing fertilizers and pesticides through the subsurface irrigation system avoids leaching of it into adjacent soil and land.

Lower maintenance with Capillary Hydroponics

Significantly reduced maintenance

The Capillary Hydroponics grows stronger grass that needs less verticutting and slitting, deep loosening and core aeration and mowing, and there are no costly replacements or maintenance of sand-clogged irrigation and drainage systems.

Sand bunkers and horse arenas won’t have to be irrigated or spot raked and no particles will migrate into the drainage system.

our vision

A world where building low-maintenance natural spaces for sport and leisure is easy and sustainable.


Lower the environmental impact of turfgrass

Our Hydroponic system is efficient and enables a lower environmental impact of turfgrass, according to an independent Life Cycle Analysis. Here are a few of the environmental issues the Capillary Hydroponics address successfully.

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.

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.

Michigan State University

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.
