Ventilation Success!!!

It has been a little over one week since the Stadium greens were vented with solid tines and the playing surfaces have almost completely healed!!

This being said we are still reaping the benefits of this cultural practice; the infiltration of water through the profile has increased and the constant movement of air in the soil continues.

This picture shows our success.

The bubbles are forming as the air being blown into the soil profile via our heating system is escaping through the surface!! This is something we did not see before venting!!
