We have begun the process of Verticutting greens this week. Now that the greens have healed from aerification, we will be doing this weekly to reduce the grain in the grass and also to remove thatch. Thatch ties up chemicals and reduces efficacy, making it difficult to get chemicals, fertilizer and water into the soil profile. Verticutting helps alleviate those problems. Once summer sets in we will back off a bit and resume in the fall. This should help speed up the greens a bit due to taking out some of the grain.
