Deep-Tine Aeration

This is considered the most effective aeration type in the industry. Our Deep Tine Aerator uses a series of 7-10” solid or coring tines at 2-5” spacing, punching holes at a high rate of compression speed while moving forward under 2 mph. Deep Tine Aeration allows for maximum penetration into the soil of any aeration type with the least impact to the playing surface.

  • Applications

    We offer a range of liquid and granular treatments proven to help establish denser, healthier, safer turf. For each client, we develop a specific program including specifications for each field based on detailed soil analysis and field use.

  • Core Aeration

    Our JD Aercore pulls 3-4” cores on 2 x 2 spacing allowing more oxygen, water, and nutrients into the root zone. Aeration helps minimize soil compaction which can damage the soil profile of a field and harden the playing surface, ultimately sacrificing player safety.

  • Core-Redistribution

    Following the Aerecore process, cores may be collected with a turf sweeper and re-distributed into areas that require repair. As opposed to using top soil and seed only to repair areas, cores are packed with viable nutrients and roots and, with proper care, begin growing immediately.

  • Top Dressing

    Top dressing incorporates sand, compost, or a blend of both into the existing soil profile. This creates a channel for oxygen, water, and nutrients to move easily through the soil profile and into the root zone where they can be utilized by the plant. Topdressing can also aid in decreasing compaction and providing a more stable and safer playing surface.



Verticutting is the process for removing thatch from bermuda turf which is periodically necessary for plant health. Thatch buildup is a result of clippings that form a thick matt on the surface of the soil which prohibit oxygen, nutrients, and water from getting to the root zone. Verticutting thins the grass to increase drainage and allow more leaf blades to emerge which ultimately improves the aesthetics, ball roll, and playability of the overall surface. After disturbing all the loose thatch from the true Bermuda base, a VersaVac machine is used to vacuum clean the playing surface so that all debris is removed and the field is ready for play.


turfplaning services™

Laser turfplaning™ is the precision removal of surface irregularities (up to 2″) from turf areas in a single pass. Through the use of a g2 turftools, inc™. 84″ turfplaner™ equipped with proportional laser, leveling to an accuracy, never before attainable, of +/−  ¼” on existing turf areas (athletic fields, golf tees, golf fairways) is now reality. This revolutionary turfplaning™ process does not require the need to remove or replace the turfgrass on effected areas. Turfplaning™ not only reduces cost of resurfacing to a fraction of conventional turf removal, tilling, re-grading, and re-grassing, but also greatly reduces time and need to re-grow root zone prior to using.

  • Cost

    Conventional surface renovation requires the removal of existing turf, tilling of the soil profile, rolling, laser grading existing soil profile, removing excess soil material, repeat laser grading of existing soil profile material, re-grassing (seeding, sprigging, or sodding), and finally growing in new turf. turfplaning® only requires a single pass to remove top layer of existing turf and soil, without disturbing the underlying roots or soil profile. At 1⁄₁₀ th the cost of conventional renovation, turfplaning® is the best alternative.

  • Accurate

    Conventional surface renovation requires that the existing soil profile be disturbed and re-compacted prior to laser grading (maximum accuracy +/- ¼”). This can lead to potentially inconsistent compaction that will result in settling and a surface that goes “off grade” much faster. With dual proportional laser control and a laser accuracy to +/- 1⁄₁₆” you can expect your turfplaned® finished grade to be accurate to +/- ¼” and stay there since the underlying soil profile is un-disturbed.

  • Faster

    Conventional surface renovation can take 4 weeks or more, depending on weather and turf availability. turfplaning® with production rates exceeding 4,000 square feet per hour, an average football field can be put “back on grade” in 2 days or less, not dependent on weather or turf availability.

  • Grow-in

    Conventional surface renovation requires from 2—52 weeks of “grow-in” to get ready for return of play depending on whether, seed, sprigs or sod are used. Even if sod is used a 2—4 week grow-in is required to get a minimum of 2″ roots to stabilize the soil and reduce irrigation. full turf coverage in 3 weeks.

  • Maintenance

    turfplaning® on a regular basis (every 2 years) can decrease or eliminate all together the need for verticutting, top dressing, and use of herbicides on over seed. In most cases this reduced maintenance will pay for the turfplaning®, and keep your turf “on grade.”
