Picking Up Where We left Off

We have once again been able to resume work up on the driving range. After a long three month weather induced hiatus work is picking up where we were at the end of last season.

Our initial focus will be completing the remaining irrigation to be installed in addition to final grading of the teeing ground. These two items must be completed before the new sod can be installed. We have also begun to modify the greens mix that was placed last fall. The mix is a 85/15 sand/peat mixture that will provide a good growing medium for the Ryegrass sod. On thing we are doing to further enhance the rootzone mixture is the addition of compost. The compost will help with moisture retention as well as inoculating the sand with beneficial fungi and microbes creating a viable soil foodweb.

Tilling The compost In
