Stadiums, sports complexes, schools, and parks & recreation fields – Turf Time West has a solution!
From stadiums, to sports complexes, schools and city parks & recreation fields, 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” of root zone to permanently amend the soil. 25 tons of sand will cover 1 acre of turf with 1-¼” drill bits.
Safer playing conditions depend on noncompacted soil. Our Wiedenmann aerifiers use coring and solid tines, with multiple options for compacted soil.
