Athletic Field Services
We use a hollow cored tine, tractor-mounted aerator to remove 4-inch plugs from the play surface, in order to relieve soil compaction and lessen the thatch layer This process encourages deeper root growth and improved penetration of water, air, and nutrients.
Deep Tine Aeration
Deep Tine Aeration uses a tractor-mounted aerator that makes use of a solid core tine that penetrates the play surface to a depth of 12 inches and fractures the sub soil. This service is very valuable on play fields that do not have irrigation or have an extremely compact soil structure. Deep Tine aeration greatly improves drainage and helps to reduce standing water on milti-use athletic fields.
Top dressing is the process of adding compost, soil or sand to existing turf to improve grass quality. Compost and other soil amendments add organic matter, improving soil structure and biology, while helping with water penetration, compaction and promoting over-all turf quality. Aeration of the turf at this time will aid in the incorporation of new materials into the soil and reduce layering.
We use a tractor mounted slit seeder which cuts grooves in the soil and deposits grass seed that is specific to your play field conditions. The seed is covered with top soil and tamed back in to place. Used in conjunction with core aeration this service is used to thicken existing turf grass to provide a much less expensive alternative to sod.
