Core aeration is preformed on sand based fields when there is an excess of organic materials in the soil profile. Much like on golf greens, coring can be preformed to remove thatch and to aid in vertical drainage. Terrasol can core aerate up to 8″ using 1″ hollow tines.
It is recommended that the cores be removed and the aerated field be top dressed and swept with new spec sand or other amendments; this will ensure that the organics and thatch removed from the subsoil are not spread back out onto the field, essentially just relocating the initial problem.
Terrasol provides several different solutions of core collection; view a video of one of our aerators coring and collecting in one step!
