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 are extended significantly. After applying compressed air aeration, a simple and cost-effective permanent aeration via Lite-Strips is beneficial.
