Overseeding Fescue.

Today we are overseeding the big course greens with Fescue .

 The John Deere Aerocore is used to make thousands of small plant pots at about 2 inch square spacings and about 1 inch deep.
 We then use a broadcast spreader to apply the seed and a light dose of poultry manure.

 This is then astro drag matted  into the holes ,after this a turf iron is used to consilodate the surface then topdressing is fired on and astro drag matted in.

The  final clean up involves a cut with the triple mower and a vibro roll in behind.
