Tee Aerification 15-18

We started our tee aerification this morning on holes 15-18.  Once the plugs are dry we use our verticut units to chop them up.  The soil works back into the thatch to eat away at it over time.  Once the plugs are chopped up we blow off and remove the remaining thatch.

Dan aerifies 16 ladies tee.

Besides removing and decreasing thatch, aerifying helps the exchange of oxygen to the roots, water and nutrients.  Next summer's healthy turf starts with this process today.
