Soil recycling for heavy duty turf renovation. It aerates the underlying soil both horizontally and vertically providing an oxygen rich environment for sustained root growth while eliminating soil compaction. The underlying soil is removed from the root-zone and re-distributed to the playing surface; recycling the soil for use on the field of play. This process eliminates soil compaction and allows the fertilizers to work more effectively in the newly oxygenated soil. Best of all, existing root zone mix is brought to the surface for topdressing and levelling, avoiding the costly process of importing sand and applying it, while eliminating the risk of non-conforming soils being introduced to your fields and features.
