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.

Earl’s Turf Sprig Planting:

This method 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 150mm 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.
