It is my intention to give the readers a better understanding of what we do to maintain The Farms Country Club's 18 hole championship golf course and grounds.

Landscape Planting Finished!

A variety of plant materials were used in the landscape bed between nine green and the practice green. The main objectives of the planting were to create a barrier that improves safety, reduces noise and visual distractions while improving aesthetics. Another factor which weighed heavily in plant selection was making sure the materials would not be too tall at maturity. We did not want sunlight to be blocked on the practice green as was the case before.
Remember that all plantings must be designed for what they will look like in five years. Not what they look like the day they are planted. We look for superior results over the long term.
