Soil Decompaction

One of the common adverse impacts on our urban growing environment is soil compaction. This reduces moisture and gas exchange into the soil and can generate an anaerobic environment which restricts and in some cases kills root growth. Decompaction alleviates this issue by opening the soil profile with compressed air while avoiding impacting on existing root structure.

Soil often is the initial step in any tree or garden rehabilitation plan. It is the introduction of air into the soil that is the key to revitalising soil biology and plant health. The longer soils remain compacted the longer rehabilitation will take. So if you have any concerns about your trees or plants heal call us to day to arrange an assessment.
