to improve drainage and soil oxygen levels. In our compacted soils water does not readily penetrate and oxygen levels are very low. The Soil:Air:Water continuum is the relationship of these three elementals. For proper growth it is essential that the ratio of the continuum is 50% soil, 25% Air and 25% water. When this ratio varies, root systems cannot efficiently and effectively perform their operations thus causing the plant to decline.
Proper planting in well drained soil and subsequent aerations helps to maintain the proper ratios and allow the plant to properly develop and thrive.« Back to Glossary Index
