Our nursery located to the left of fairway #1 has recently undergone some changes. At the suggestion of Assistant Superintendent Josh Jobson, we stripped the old turf and regraded the area for better drainage. Then during aerification we piled plugs from the aerification holes on the course at the nursery. Then we rolled, topdressed and watered. What this will give us is turf that is the same as what is on the course so when minor repairs have to be made the difference between the old and new areas will be minimized.
Here are pictures of the process at the nursery:
This last picture shows how the plugs from the aerification in Mid-October re-grow in the nursery.
