Aerating your Turf

Home Lawn

  • Many lawn problems are caused by soil compaction as people and vehicles repeatedly move over the lawn. Wet soils are especially prone to compaction.
  • To relieve compaction for small lawns a simple garden fork can be used to aerate the soil. Work the fork backwards and forwards at approx. 10cm intervals to open up the soil.

Aerating Larger Sites

  • Earl’s Turf contract aerating using an agrivator for large areas. Ideal for sports fields, school ovals, parks, etc.
  • Aerating increases oxygen, water and fertilizer penetration to the root system creating a healthy plant.
  • Ideal to aerate in spring and autumn when fertilising.
  • Established turf sports fields can be rolled after aerating and played on immediately.
  • Having a healthy sports field reduces sports injuries and therefore litigation.

Contact Earl’s Turf for pricing of large areas.

Planting Turf

Planting Your Turf

  • Earl’s Turf has been successfully establishing large grass areas through turf planting. These have been done using economical methods of grass establishment.
  • Earl’s Turf planting method relies on using sprigs of turf planted into the site soil. Our aim is to provide customers within six months a similar result as if solid turf was installed, but at 25% of the price of turfing.
  • Sprig Planting uses a purpose built turf planter that was originally designed to establish turf crops on turf farms. It shreds and plants sprigs/runners of turf into shallow continuous furrows 200mm apart. It is an ideal method to be used on large sites, with at least 100mm of topsoil and adequate irrigation.
  • We do not use any form of straight seeding as warm season turf cannot be successfully established. Seeding is limited to short term aesthetic or erosion control measures.
  • Over planting of new species into existing grasses is possible with our Sprig Planter.
