Day 18 - Irrigation, Sand and Boards
Below is one of the new irrigation heads being installed. The new irrigation system will work a lot like devices in smart homes. The system connects to weather stations over the internet and will automatically adjust to changing weather conditions. This should make sure we are putting the exact amount of water on the green at all times.
Here you can see Andy from Island Irrigation cutting the trench for the water line to the centre of the green. This picture also shows a closeup of the USGA sand mix. This USGA sand that we chose is the best for making a smooth, firm surface that will be ideal for creating a healthy turf.
Boards are all in. Sand is almost all in. Soon we will be packing and seeding.
This is one sturdy ditch that should easily handle any runner that is thrown.
