After the decision was made to install sand trenches and create a 2 inch sand cap, it was time to go to work.
The existing bluegrass/ryegrass/tall fescue surface was sprayed with Glyphosate in mid april and early May to ensure complete kill/control of the undesired playing surface. Next, the surface was fraze mowed and recycled.
New irrigation laterals and heads were installed.
Finally, in late May, the drainage was installed on 14 ft centers and tied into existing perimeter drainage.
So, the heavy lifting was complete, now it was time to install the 2 inch cap of USGA rootzone sand, sprig with Northbridge bermudagrass and begin the grow-in.
