For aerating the lawns the LITE-STRIPS are inserted vertically into the underground. They consist of environmentally friendly, high-strength and rot-proof geotextiles/nonwovens made of long-lasting polypropylene or biologically degradable raw material such as wood fiber. As these nonwovens contain up to approx. 90% open and interconnected voids, they can drain air and water very well on the one hand and additionally serve as a water reservoir.
Water and air from the surface are discharged in the subsoil. This process reduces the roots’ felting so they grow at a deeper level. By transmitting the water quickly from the surface to the soil the effects of water-logging and evaporation are reduced. This innovative technology of aeration offers long-lasting benefits.
Additionally, LITE-STRIPS can be mixed into the soil. With their extremely high water storing capacity they supply the plants in the long term and the intervals for artificial irrigation LITE-STRIPS is beneficial.
