Sod cutting

Sod cutting

Sod cutting serves to rejuvenate the vegetation and is important for the preservation of the vulnerable living environment. It is therefore an efficient and widely used management measure. A big step towards a sustainable future. For plants, animals and people.

Sod cutting is the removal of the top soil layer with vegetation and roots. The unnaturally enriched and polluted layer of the soil disappears and the remaining soil becomes poorer in nutrients. As a result, vegetations develop again on a cut part of the ground. In the original natural way, on the new land.

Project for the world of tomorrow

The Naardermeer is an important example of sod cutting. We removed the forests and removed 20 to 40 centimetres from the top layer with our swamp cranes so that the reed could start growing again. Rare and special plants, such as the round-leaved sundew and the fen orchid, are now growing again among the reed and on the islands that have formed. A wonderful project for the world of tomorrow!
