At the core of our solution, Capillary Concrete, is a patented and engineered polymer-based concrete. The only building material that can rapidly drain water while also moving water up, regulating the moisture consistency of sand, soil, and turfgrass Capillary Hydroponics Turf System Introducing the first fully hydroponic growing system for turfgrass. Our Capillary Hydroponics Turf System ensures the right water content and gas-exchange in a turf profile by automatically controlling the water level to produce healthier turfgrass with less risk, water, maintenance and environmental impact. Greater gas-exchange deep in rootzone. Up to 85% less water consumption. Lower maintenance and labor costs. Longer lifespan of soil profile. Greater turf quality due to dryer surface. Greatly reduced soil temperatures (up to 15 degrees Fahrenheit) in hot climates, and increased soil temperatures during winter in cold climates.
