More Sand

This week we are "topping" off the greens that were just aerated last week. No matter how much sand goes on the green to fill the holes, they always settle out after water is applied. You'll notice that the greens will roll much better after this topdressing and more sand helps the last of the holes close up. The holes will close up even faster with more sand because you have a blade of grass that is trying to grow vertically, but with the weight of the sand on top, it is forced to grow laterally.
