Our greens are finally starting to perk up and we are seeing a little growth. One of the ways we are fixing some of the damaged areas is to utilize cup-cutter turf plugs from the nursery. We space the plugs far enough apart so that foot and mower traffic will not damage young bentgrass seedlings as they sprout. It will help these areas to fill in quicker too. Additionally, the plugs we are installing are Creeping Bentgrass. The desirable species we are constantly trying to increase in population.
