"This is probably the single most important operation you can carry out on your pitch"
By Vertical Tine Aeration (VERTI-DRAIN) or Linear Aeration (SHOCKWAVE), the profile is disturbed creating cracks
that in turn allow water, air and nutrients in. This improves drainage, deeper rooting and healthier grass sward.
Scarifying and Verti-Cutting are also forms of aeration as they remove thatch which stops water getting to the soil.
Aeration carried out on a regular basis will markedly improve the playing surface.
