Visual Contrast in Turf Color

When we talk about our turf conversion scheduled for August, it is hard to visualize the difference in aesthetics that this work will create.  This photo shows the contrast between the old grass on the left and the newer grass on the right that was installed a few years ago when the tee was constructed.   Now, visualize the entire golf course the color on the right.

In April a large area at the practice area will be sprayed and then seeded to simulate what will be done in August.
