Lawn Sand

Lawn sand has been applied to all of the greens today.  This is a mixture of a fast acting nitrogen source (sulphate of ammonia) and iron (sulphate of iron).  The iron will knock back the moss that has appeared during the mild wet winter and the nitrogen will promote grass growth to fill the gaps left by the moss.  Expect to see a darkening of the turf over the next few days and some tram lines along the spreader wheel tracks.  These effects are harmless and temporary; they will grow out fairly quickly.  As with all fertiliser application to our greens the product has been applied at a very low rate to avoid promoting too much lush growth.
