Paving Garrett Farms Tennis CourtsGarrett Farms, a large subdivision in Durham County, had two tennis courts that were in dire need of repair due to root and water damage.

Ruston Paving was contracted by North State Resurfacing, the general contractor of the project, to pulverize the existing courts and a portion of the subbase. We then mixed Portland cement into the blended material to stabilize the subbase.  After that was complete, we placed and compacted 4″ of crushed stone and 3″ of surface asphalt pavement mix in two lifts.

Once the color coating, fencing and nets are installed, the residents will be able to garner years of enjoyment from their new courts!

Grader at TCR

After many years of planning, the Tennis Club of Rochester (TCR), located in Pittsford, New York, has proceeded with renovations to six of its existing clay courts to make them more spacious and maintenance free.  Ruston Paving began working with TCR in 2008 to provide budget pricing for the project.  After some revisions in design and layout, TCR began the project this spring following the removal of the “bubble” that covers the court allowing play during the winter months.  The construction expanded the area by approximately 7 feet providing additional spacing between the courts.  We have been contracted to remove the existing clay surface and replace it with a new 3.5″ asphalt hard surface prior to the installation of  the new ClayTec clay tennis court system.  ClayTech produced by HarTru is a hybrid that provides the maintenance free  benefits of a hard court system with the safety and playability associated with a clay court.  In order to achieve the critical grades required for the project, we utilized precise laser guided machine control electronics installed on our grader.

Our latest YouTube video features Ruston Paving performing the full depth reclamation (FDR) process from start to finish. Chapel Hill Country Club located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina reconnected with Ruston Paving for another project after working closely with us during the reconstruction of their parking areas two years ago. A bank of 4 tennis courts were in such disrepair that the club feared that they would need to completely excavate and rebuild them starting from scratch. Mark Rogers, our North Carolina Division Manager, quickly identified FDR with portland cement as an obvious solution to minimize cost and reduce damage to adjacent grounds. Utilizing FDR with portland cement, we were able to reclaim and recycle the existing surface and base material (that had already been purchased years ago) and stabilize it with portland cement.  This limited the amount of new imported construction material and the amount of exported waste materials. More can be learned about the FDR process here.
