Golf Course Aerification

Drill and Fill Aerification Improves Drainage

For greens, fairways and tee boxes, Turf Time West’s deep drill & fill aerification process will relieve compaction, promote deeper root growth and increase drainage. The condition of turf largely depends on the events occurring below the surface. For grass to grow, deep healthy roots are needed, and roots demand oxygen. In good soil, they receive oxygen from tiny pockets of air trapped between soil and sand particles. The everyday traffic from players combined with the weight of heavy equipment causes the soil to become compacted, and the air pockets on which the roots depend for oxygen are lost.

Drill and fill aerification is a mechanical process that creates more air space in the soil and promotes deeper rooting, water drainage and compaction relief while purging toxic gases. This creates enhanced water infiltration and drainage, placing sand channels through the top 8-12” of root zone to permanently amend the soil. We use ¾” and ⅞” drill bits on the greens at 12” deep, and 1-¼” drill bits on the fairways at 8” deep.

Deep Drill Aerification Relieves Compaction

The “gentle footprint” of the deep drill aerifier, in conjunction with the absence of cyclic vibration and the “straight in, straight out” action of the drill bits, gives this machine the capability of aerifying fields that are wet, dry or experiencing periods of high stress. The deep drill aerifier is also excellent for use in all problem areas because the rotating drill bits will penetrate subsoil areas, where other machines tend to walk or bounce, often causing trauma to the playing surface. Our deep drill works best on GREENS, with 5” centers, going 10” deep using ⅝” or ¾” drill bits.
