Bi-Monthly Greens Maintenance

34
During the golf season we try our best to verticut and topdress the greens every two weeks.    Poa annua can regenerate new leaf tissue quickly and become puffy.  Putting speed and smoothness can be adversely affected during this time.  Verticutting increases putting speed and overall quality.  We lightly topdress to aid with the smoothness and help dilute our organic material.  This is a great cultural practice to keep our greens in excellent condition.
