Abstract/Contents:Discusses the practice of aerification, suggesting that it "alleviates compaction, removes thatch, and delivers air, nutrients and water to the roots very efficiently." Distinguishes solid tining from deep tining, stating that "deep tine aerification penetrates the thatch, topsoil and potentially subsoil all in one motion." Notes that "core aerification removes a core of thatch and soil ejecting the plug every time it strikes the ground. The main reason to use coring tines is to remove and reduce thatch build-up from the organic layer." Details potential risks and effects of aerification, and emphasizes the possible importance of watering after the process.
