D04.4 Airfield Zone
This zone includes the runways in the Flightline District, the natural areas between the runways, and the areas surrounding the perimeter extending to the Longleaf Pine forest. Work in this area also includes the Flightline. The landscape in this zone must not support wildlife, especially birds because they can cause damage to aircraft and present a safety issue. Air Force standards must be met regarding vegetation that is restricted and allowed in this zone.
Grass for use at the Airfield Zone for utility repair will be Bahia grass sod. Use sod or plugs only. No seeding is allowed in this zone due to attracting birds. The landscape contractor is responsible for mowing the grassed areas at specific times of day and on certain days of a week, as coordinated with the base. Grassed areas in this zone will be mowed on a monthly basis. The landscape contractor is responsible for keeping all drainage channels clear from debris and silting. Cleaning all storm drainage structures on an annual basis is included in the maintenance of this zone.
