A drainage solution for large, turfed areas and sporting fields.
Verti-draining (or aeration) is one the services offered by the team here at Hancey’s Turf. This is a necessary step in turf maintenance, helping you keep your grass healthy, strong, and looking its best.

What Is Verti-Draining?

This method of aeration involves rolling a specialised machine over the ground, driving attached spikes (known as tynes or tines) vertically into the turf. These tynes move while underground, loosening compacted soil. Depending on the type of grass and the use of the area, tynes may be different sizes and reach different depths.
While most turfed areas will benefit from aeration, it is particularly important for large or high-traffic areas experiencing regular use. These areas tend to end up with packed, hard soil that doesn’t let water or air penetrate through to the subsoil.

Benefits of Verti-Draining

There are a number of benefits to aerating your turf. These generally include:

  • Allowing oxygen and water to reach root systems
  • Encouraging root systems to get stronger and deeper
  • Opening up subsoil for drainage
  • Helping reduce excess thatching

Overall, these elements combine to result in grass that thrives. This helps eliminate sparse patches and gets you on the way to enjoying thicker, more attractive fields.
