First scheduled verticutting and topdressing of our greens

This coming Monday we will be verticutting and topdressing our greens. As the first verticutting of the year we will be trying to remove as much of the thatch matt or dead tissue from the surface of the greens in order to allow the new spring transition of our turf to get the optimum room to grow. If this great weather continues we will also schedule a small tine aerification of the greens and tees. These are essential practices to growing healthy turf.
I love spring even if it does bring more work.
