Soil improvement / vitalisation

The carbohydrates contained in Maltaflor seed-o-gran fertilizers are ideal nutrients for soil micro-organisms which not only reduce lawn thatch but also guarantee a sustainable loosening of compacted soil.

 

Soil particles stored loosely after aeration (without any micro-organisms).

Soil particles stored densely after mechanical strain (without soil any micro- organisms).

Soil particles stored loosely despite heavy traffic (with soil micro- organisms).

 

 

Aeration

Permanent footsteps on lawns lead to a compression of the soil, curtailing air permeability of the pores and the drainage. Finally this situation results in the death of the plants through suffocation. As clay solidifies more than sand, highly stressed sport lawns should once a year be aerated and sanded with an aerator like Verti-Drain.

After the coring of the ground Maltaflor and Sand are being applied into the lawn base layer.

Maltaflor seed-o-gran contains nutrients which increase the microbial activity of the soil and remains permeable for a longer period of time.

Aeration and sanding with hollow core gouges

Aerators hollow tines lift earth out of the soil when processing the lawn. The holes resulting from this are finally filled with sand and Maltaflor. The earth exchange leads to an optimal fertilizer-sand mixture into the lower layers.

 

The procedures:

1.  Procedure with a aerator (here Verti-Drain)
2. Collecting of the cores
3. Application of sand and Maltaflor seed-o-gran plus

 

 

Aeration and sanding with solid tines

When using solid tines there is no earth exchange. While they do not relieve soil compaction as efficiently as hollow tine aerification, these practices cause less surface disruption and can be done anytime. Solid tine aerifiers insert solid round tines into the soil. Solid tine aerification can dramatically relieve soil compaction, but should be done during active turf growth.

The procedures:

1. Sanding (if necessary)
2. Maltaflor fertilization
3.  Processing with scarifier (here: Verti Drain)
