Green Edges Located

In preperation for the installation of sod around the greens the edges have been located by a soil probe.

You know when you are in the original green mix when the probe is in sand for 12 inches or more and then hits gravel.  A white mark with paint is then made and a little interpretation is done in connecting the dots.  The next step is to slowly reduce the height of cut, aerate regularily, and verticut agressively so that these areas match the existing greens in the future.
