The Imants Recycling Dresser is a heavy-duty aerator and root zone recycler. The Recycling Dresser aerates vertically and horizontally, removes the underlying soil from the root zone, and redistributes soil as a topdressing across the playing surface. This vertical and horizontal aeration mitigates layering and compaction, increases biological activity, and allows for better utilization of existing fertilizers in the soil. The Recycling Dresser reduces the amount of new topdressing required, thus saving labor and material costs as well as promoting sustainable maintenance. The Recycling Dresser is best used on loamy to sandy soils.
