If heat, erosion or run-off is a problem, crimping straw into the ground needs to be the final step in grass seeding. The CR25 Series Straw Crimper keeps seed in place and undisturbed soil on top, promoting an optimal growing environment where resources can be scarce. Seeding along highways, large municipal sites, and residential areas are ideal situations for the Land Pride Straw Crimper. Its 72" width means its sized right for most landscaping tractors and can be used for large or small landscaping jobs or roadside maintenance. When the ground is hard and time does not permit another round of preparation before crimping, the additional weight of the optional water tanks can help force the discs into the hard-packed soil.
