Aerification - Day Two

Another perfect day for aerification!  We were able to finish work on greens, tees and fairways.  All that remains is cleanup of the rough on the back nine, and a few other odds and ends.  Now it is up to Mother Nature to help us complete the healing process, which if the weather holds should go quickly.

Slit seeding greens with A-4 bent grass seed.

After the plugs are ground, the fairways are dragged in two directions with this steel mat.  The thatch remaining is blow off and then the fairway is mowed prior to fertilizing.

Fertilizer is the last step and then everything is watered.

#13 green - in about 10 days the greens should be healed.
