Walk aerating green surrounds

Our green surrounds take a pummeling during the season, especially our zoysia which is next to our greens. In an effort to improve the close surround areas, we are using our old Toro walk aerator to punch some solid tine holes into these areas to loosen the soil and provide for some water penetration in these areas. We are also going to purchase a compost based fertilizer to then broadcast into these areas to give some slow release nutrition and improve the soil structure in these surrounds. Our plans are to remove the warm season turf from the surrounds but we cannot remove any more during the summer season and need to do all we can to improve the health of these areas at this time. It is a slow operation but it should pay dividends as the season progresses.
