After a certain period of use of these surfaces for sports, the soil will inevitably become compacted. If this compacting has advanced to the stage where not enough water, nutrients and oxygen can penetrate the soil, healthy growth can no longer take place. When the exchange of gases between the soil and the atmosphere is impeded, methane begins to build up. Within this environment, anaerobic bacteria begin to form in the root zone. These microorganisms have a negative effect on root growth.
Consequently, depending on the level of use of the sports grounds, soil aeration must be carried out on a regular basis. In this context, the time at which the aeration occurs and the general manner in which it is carried out depend on several factors, such as the level of moisture in the soil, the soil type or, as mentioned above, the frequency with which the green areas are used. To assist with the implementation of this aeration work, we offer a wide range of aeration tools in various configurations.
