Aeration  

We have a range of machinery using different methods to help relive compaction and aerate soil. The Wiedenmann XP6 has the ability to spike with 25mm tines up to 350mm deep . The Terra Spike or Verti-Drain vertical aerators can use solid or hollow tines to take out cores, reducing organic matter. We offer a range of slitters for fast, minimal impact aeration. Alternatively, there is also our latest machine the Verti-Quake, this linear aerator decompacts the soil using a set of rotating steel blades. As these blades cut cleanly through the soil, they create a wave action that shatters compacted areas and opens up the subsoil.
 
Aeration can have the following benefits:

 

  • Enhanced soil water uptake.

  • Improved fertilizer uptake and use.

  • Reduced water runoff and puddling.

  • Improved air exchange between the soil and atmosphere.

  • Stronger, deeper turfgrass roots.

  • Reduced soil compaction.

  • Enhanced heat and drought stress tolerance.

  • Improved resiliency and cushioning.

  • Enhanced thatch breakdown.
