Terrain Aeration - Book for Trouble Shooters on a discount
BTME 2005 Stand Q 13
As January to May is the prime time for deep, compressed air de-compaction treatment on golf courses, (the summer months are usually too dry and too busy) Terrain Aeration are offering a 15% discount on any work booked at the show.
Concentrating on greens and tees, and fielding three Airforce terralift machines, the company are increasingly finding themselves in the role of "trouble-shooter," called to redress water logging when all else has failed.
"Often a golf green will have a perfectly good drainage system, but the area above it is so compacted that excess water is blocked before it can get away," explains Terrain's operations director Lynda Green.
Working on a staggered grid pattern at two metre spacings the Airforce machines inject air under pressure, one metre down to create fractures and fissures. These minute air channels are then kept open by the insertion of dried, milled seaweed, which swells on contact with moisture. Treatment can be performed at a rate of 4 to 6 greens per day, (depending on size and soil conditions) and as there is no disruption to the surface, play can commence immediately.
Lynda and David Green will be available on the stand, but should you miss them, you can call the company on Tel: 01449 673783, or visit their website at : www.terrainaeration.com
