This week we are Verti Draining our greens with 8mm Solid Tines to a Depth of 180mm. Carrying out this operation is crucial in promoting healthy deep rooting grasses and has three main benefits 1. Aids percolation/drainage.2.Releives Compaction allowing deep rooting 3. Last and certainly not least gets oxygen down into the profile allowing gas exchange and the Soil food Web to Thrive, beneficial Fungi & Bacteria need Oxygen to work at breaking down organic matter and locked up nutrients making them available to the plant/roots.
