A cricket square is made up of heavy clay soils so aeration is vitally important and should be seen as a positive measure for clubs. This helps keep nutrients in circulation and increase the effectiveness of irrigation and root development in the summer. If thorough aeration is not carried out to de-compact the square it will impede the health and vigour of the turf, denying free passage of water, air and nutrients to encourage root development, which is important to bind the pitch surface together to prevent cracking and crumbling and allows top dressing to migrate into the tine holes.
Details of the aeration service including costs and booking can be found below.
