Rough/Native Conversion

It's been almost a week and the rough that was sprayed with herbicide is definitely starting to show signs of death.  There is great contrast right now between the areas to be converted and the remaining rough.  It isn't difficult to envision what the new native areas will look like now that the rough has turned brown.  We have one final herbicide application in these areas to ensure a thorough kill and then we will be seeding these areas in mid September.
Once we begin seeding these areas, it is crucial that golf carts stay out of these areas so that we can get the seed to come up properly.  We have created spaces within the new areas that will allow cart traffic from the cart path to the fairways without driving through the seeded areas.  The success of this project depends on your cooperation.  If you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask.  Thanks!
