• Improves and helps maintain a better playing surface
• Improves and helps promote good soil structure
• Promotes quicker drying of turf
• Better absorption of water from the surface to the drainage system helping prevent surface water problems
This process is usually followed by spreading sand on the sports turf. This is then brushed into the holes created by the vertidrain machinery to give the fairways better drainage. However, our budget at Redditch doesn't stretch to the spreading on the sand at the moment (it's a work in progress).
Verti draining can alleviate problems that sports turf face such as compacted surfaces interfering with the draining system.
Verti draining can be carried out at various times of the year (conditions permitting) and is very effective for improving drainage and deep aeration on all turf surfaces and helps prevent surfaces becoming water logged leading to game cancellations.
and finally clearing the fairway with the blower of any leaves and debris.....
