Sports Pitch Aeration - Verti Draining Services

Compaction is a perennial problem for sports pitches where amenity turf can suffer from a combination of heavy usage and extremes of weather. Deep loosening of the ground, using hollow tine aeration, is an extremely successful treatment, resulting in a well drained, healthy sward that is safer to use and more wear resistant.

Bawden's Terra Spike XP/210 verti-drain equipment is ideal for golf courses and for soccer, rugby and hockey pitches. The verti-drain unit is tractor-mounted and has a working width of 2.1m. It can be quickly adjusted and calibrated to achieve the correct depth and degree of 'heave' suitable to treat the varying conditions across the pitch or grassed area.
