Sand Banding

Sand banding or slitting is the process of installing sand trenches at approximately 50mm wide x 200mm deep at 1-2m centres across the sports ground. These trenches are normally installed in conjunction with sub-soil ag-pipe drains. The sand bands then link in with the ag-pipe drain network to remove the water from the playing surface during rainfall.

Total Turf Care has installed sand bands without ag-pipe drainage being present and whilst the removal of water is slower than with ag-pipe drains being present, it still does remove water from the playing surface effectively.
