The next step in the process was to deep tine the greens. This involved poking a half inch hole every 5 inches to a depth of 7 inches. This process allows for extended root development throughout the spring growing months.
Directly after the deep tine, core aerifiers were used to remove organic material and thatch from the soil. 3/8ths inch holes were poked to a depth of almost 2 inches. The cores were then carefully removed from the green surface.
Stay tuned for more updates this week on the aerification progress.
