CORING / AERATION
Coring is the process of punching small holes in your lawn removing plugs of soil to promote increased water penetration and oxygenation into the root zone. The coring tyne punches a hole up to 70 mm deep into the turf subsoil and through the organic and thatch layers, resulting in instant water penetration, deeper distribution and more effective absorption of wetting agents and nutrition. Coring will also provide relief from traffic compaction (kids play, swing sets, trampolines, cricket pitches, pet activity) on all soil types. Brisbane's hot Summers and extended watering seasons present a real soil and turf hydration challenge. Wetting agents and a good slow release fertiliser are vital in this quest to keep ahead of the game. Coring is a great strategy to get off to a good start and maintain the Winter soil moisture throughout the Spring and Summer.
