After we have finished the vertical mowing, we will begin an aerification process known as a DryJect. Here is a brief summary of the DryJect aerification and how it works:
How It Works
Traditional core aeration is time consuming and requires several steps to return turf to a playable surface. DryJect is a revolutionary service which, when added to your maintenance program, can reduce the need for core aerification and greatly amplify the benefits of sand amendments by distributing them into the ground more completely.
DryJect’s high-pressure, water-based injection system blasts aeration holes through the root zone to fracture the soil, while it’s patented vacuum technology simultaneously fills holes with amendment. Relieve compaction, increase water filtration, reach the root zone with oxygen and amend your soil all at the same time, leaving the surface smooth and playable.
There will be very minimal disruption to the condition of the greens, and with the earlier-then-normal warm weather conditions that we are experiencing, we should have about 90%-95% fill-in of the aerifiaction holes within the next 2-3 weeks. We at the Turf Care Facility appreciate your patience and understanding of these vital cultural practices that MUST be performed regularly to maintain the conditions that the members and patrons of The Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club expect and deserve.
As always any questions, comments or feedback is always appreciated.
We'll see you out there!
