What actually is


Vertidraining is the process of inserting large rods into the turf at equally spaced intervals to put holes in the turf.

This might sound counterintuitive but the act of vertidraining not only de-compacts the soil. It allows for air and water to filter down through the soil more effectively to the grassroots. The fresh air and water help revitalise the grass to promote a thicker and healthier plant.

Originally this would have been done with a pitchfork and a lot of hard work with unreliable results. These days we utilise specialized modern equipment and are ready to provide uniform and effective vertidraining services to any field, pitch, course or grassy area.
