First mowing of the rough, not yet
We have had enough rain to keep the soil moist but not completely saturated. As we finished our leaf clean up late last fall, more leaves continued to drop and blow around the course througout the winter. As conditions continue to dry, we thought we would go out and do a little leaf clean up. We used the blower to move the leaves into windrows and the rough mower to chop up the leaves. Usually, the rough mower will need to be out cutting a few areas of turf about the last week of March.
