Aeration

Compaction is the biggest single problem encountered by sports turf managers.  Compaction is compression of the soil, which reduces the movement of air, water and nutrients through the soil profile. Compaction issues — caused by heavy traffic — drive the need for frequent aeration on sports fields.

We  offer several aerating techniques to reduce soil compaction and improve  the safety and playability of the turf surface. The services we offer  include:

  • Deep tine aeration utilizing solid or coring tines
  • Traditional core aerating
  • Deep slicing with the SISIS Maxislit
  • Deep linear decompaction/aerating with the BLEC Groundbreaker
  • Air injection aerating utilizing the SISIS Aer-Aid System 

Over-Seeding

Dense, sturdy turf forms the best playing  surface on athletic fields. One method of increasing density is over-seeding. This  process adds turfgrass seed to an existing turf grass base. The primary  objective on athletic fields is to improve the playability of the field with  better stability due to the increased density and the elimination—or at least  the reduction—of bare spots. When performed properly and incorporated into a turf maintenance program, over-seeding can provide dramatic results. 

Top-Dressing

Top-dressing is one of the most important cultural practices in the maintenance of quality turf.  Top-dressing is the application of a uniform thin layer of soil or finely granulated organic materials applied over the turf surface. It is used to level the playing field when minor variations or depressions are apparent, help to amend physical soil properties and create a better growing environment for the turf and aid in the reduction of thatch. Top-dressing materials include: quality sandy topsoil,  pure sand, sand/compost combination, a sand/calcined clay mixture or any  combination of the above material.
