Solving Challenging Conditions:
Below, an architect of a new building for a school wanted to create a communication area between two existing wings and the new area. The site was quite steep and had a base of hard unfractured rock. Faced with expensive excavation of at least 12″ of rock to allow sufficient depth for a well drained lawn, the consultant sought out Capiphon™. The result was a design for a very shallow excavation, utilizing the flat structure of the Capiphon™ belt to allow for a healthy lawn to be grown at a very minimum depth of soil.
Capiphon may provide the perfect drainage solution for challenging conditions.
Mitigating Poor Drainage:
This garden was beset with perennial flooding. Conventional drainage would have been extremely disruptive, with deep and wide trenches, requiring heavy machinery. Capiphon’s powerful capillary and syphonic drainage system installed by hand with simple construction techniques resulted in a simple but effective solution.
