#12 greens renovation

JonesPlan started our greens renovation project yesterday. They started on #12 green got it all cleaned out and ready for sand. You can see in the picture that they are scooping out the old sod and some of the soil profile. Over the years, the top four inches had accumulated too much organic matter and was clogging up the soil. This doesn't allow for deep rooting and results in a much weaker plant. JonesPlan is removing this problematic layer and replacing it. Once the sand is back in place it will be blended and regraded.
Once this green is done, they will move onto #13 and #14. They should be done will all three greens by Friday afternoon.
