Deep Tine Aerification & New Range Tee



Click for Web Version

Last night our contractors started deep tining our greens.  This process creates an 8 inch channel which improves drainage, provides space for roots, improves oxygen and reduces thatch.  The biggest benefit is that it breaks through the bottom layer of topdressing sand and the subsoil the greens were built out of.  We topdress after, brush the sand in, water, then double roll.  You won't be able to tell that we even aerified in a few days.

Our new range mats will be here Friday and we will install sod around the bricks next week.
