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 decompact 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.
The Spiker will be transported to and from your club and operated by Phil Mortimer exclusively. Details of the aeration service including costs and how to book can be found below.
Basic spiker hire fee:
- £50 for up to 10 pitches
- £60 for 11 to 15 pitches
- £70 for more than 15 pitches
