Case Study:  Shearon Environmental Design Successfully Rebuilds Softball and Baseball Fields at the Hun School in Princeton, NJ after Hurricane Ida


The Hun School, located in Princeton, NJ, is a prestigious private school with a rich history of athletics.  The school’s athletic programs are an integral part of its culture and community, providing opportunities for students to learn valuable life skills, build confidence, and form lasting relationships.

However, after the devastating impact of Hurricane Ida in 2021, the school’s softball and baseball fields were severely damaged.  The school administration immediately contacted Shearon Environmental Design, a renowned landscape company known for its expertise in environmental design and restoration, to rebuild and restore the fields to their original glory.


The main challenge that Shearon Environmental Design faced was to rebuild the fields within a tight deadline before the start of the next sports season.  The company also had to ensure that the fields would be fully functional, safe, and attractive for the students, and meeting all regulatory requirements.


Shearon Environmental Design started by assessing the damage caused by Hurricane Ida to understand the extent of the damage and the scope of the work required.  The company’s team identified that the drainage system of the fields had been severely affected and needed to be replaced.  Additionally, the sod and infield of the fields also needed to be re-done.

The company proposed a comprehensive plan that included removing the existing sod and soil, replacing it with high-quality sod, and installing a new drainage system.  The company also ensured that the infield was properly maintained with new soil and clay surfaces.


Shearon Environmental Design successfully completed the project on time and within budget, exceeding the school’s expectations.  The newly rebuilt softball and baseball fields are now safe, functional and aesthetically pleasing, giving the students a top-quality facility to exercise in.

The school administration expressed their gratitude for the incredible work completed by Shearon Environmental Design, who went above and beyond to make sure they delivered an outstanding end result.  They also appreciated the company’s professionalism, reliability, and attention to detail throughout the project.


Shearon Environmental Design has once again proven to be a leader in the landscaping industry, delivering a high-quality solution that met the client’s needs while also ensuring their satisfaction.  Their innovative approach, attention to detail, and unparalleled expertise in environmental design & restoration continue to impress and guarantee the happiness of their clients.
