Seeding of Greens

In order to promote full recovery on greens we are lightly seeding and topdressing areas of greens that lack turf coverage.

First we take a hand spike and make slits in two directions.

Then we hand sow the seed. This particular seed is coated in "Yellow Jacket" to improve moisture uptake which will lessen the time for germination and increase percent of germination.

Then the area is topdressed with sand and fertilizer.

Hope to see these areas germinate in 5-7 days. In the meantime expect seeded areas to be watered lightly more often than areas without seed.
