Sand Disappearing!

I always have to laugh when someone tells me we have put too much sand on the greens after aerification! My response is always the same, just wait and watch. Yesterday, (November 2) made 3 weeks since our aggressive aerification and the sand is almost disappeared. The sand that fills the aerification core holes takes a while to settle/compact. This happens primarily with water, irrigation or rainfall. As it settles, we continue with our brushing program, the excess sand on the surface continually gets brushed in the holes until filled 100%. This process takes about 2 weeks. Here is a look of day #1 topdressing and 3 weeks later. I call this green perfect going into winter.

Day #1 - Topdressed.

Day #21 - Perfect for Winter.
