A Breth of Fresh Air

Our weather pattern and the stresses of the summer can take a toll on the performance and health of putting greens.  Periodically, we will aerify the greens with 1/4" solid tines that penetrate the greens surface opening up an avenue for air and water.  This is a non-invasive process and many players do not even notice the holes.

 I was given the analogy once by a good friend.  Imagine putting a bag on your head and trying to breath.  Poke a hole in it and you can breath a little easier.  Greens are similar.  They can suffocate and by adding some holes, no matter the size or method, they can begin to breath a bit easier.
