Verti Draining

Here at ALS, one of our most popular services is verti draining, we can complete verti draining on any sort of sports turf, big or small. Whether we need to send out a whole fleet of verti-drainers to complete the job or just a singular one, we have the equipment, workforce and ability to do so.

What is Verti draining?

Verti draining is the process of inserting tines into the surface of the ground, used to break up soil compaction. These tines create multiple, small holes on the surface of the turf. The holes created from vertidraining allow oxygen into the soil and the greens to drain properly, making room for aeration.

What does Vertidraining do?

Using verti-drain machinery provides the best conditions for healthy root growth and helps prevent waterlogging. It also helps thatch breakdown and improves cushioning. It’s best practice for turf renovation and maintenance, we recommend carrying out verti draining once or twice a year to keep your sports turf looking its best, usually in the months of February and October or November.
