We will be aerifying the fairways next but ran into a glitch with the Kubota. We discovered a large split in one of the back tires and felt it was not safe to run it until we replace it. We ordered two new ones last week and should have them soon. Our sand pile will be filled this week as well as it took quite a bit to do the greens and the tees.
We will be fertilizing the greens this week with Nature Safe 8-3-5 . This is an organic fertilizer that has various meat by product meals which provide nitrogen that will slowly release over a 7 to 8 week period. We have used this product now for quite a few years and have seen excellent results, especially following aerification.
Ducklings are always a nice sign of spring as are the blooms on the trees and the native flowers. Here is a picture of the dogwood along the fifteenth fairway and one of the Balsam plants flowering between the third and eleventh tee boxes.
