Thatch the way you do it...
Graden work on the greens went well and they are now recovering, we currently have no temporary greens in play.
One newer practice we'vebeen using is Verticutting. Verticutting is, as it name implies, vertical mowing. Blades cut vertically into the turf, which has the distinct benefit of controlling thatch by removing dead and dying grass, and therefore removing and preventing thatch build-up.
Thatch - A tightly packed layer of dead and living parts (from grass/plants) between the grass and soil.
Why is thatch so bad? - Thatch can: contain insects and diseases, prevent the proper absorbtion of pesticides and other chemical treatments, a little thatch can help the soil retain moisture but too much can prevent water from penetrating the soil properly and lead to dry and wet spots, lead to shallow rooted grass (which can cause a whole host of problems by itself).
We know you all love pristine greens, but we need to carry out maintenance on them every so often to keep them that way.
Should I Just Keep Chasing Pavements?
Pathways around the course are currently being re-laid. The pictures below show the pathway by the 16th green. This work will continue over the next couple of weeks and focus on the pathways by the 1st tee and along the 14th hole.
The other pictures below show the development on the 5th hole. The green staff are currently moving the green back 5-6 yards after recommendations from STRI.
