High Rough!

Of recent there has been much positive feedback on the high rough areas around HP, I choose to stay away from the use of the term Native Areas to delineate these areas because quite simply; they are not native! The Turfgrass types include turf type tall fescue and a small percentage of fine fescues. Last season, we strategically put in place a program to enhance these areas, by no means are these areas no maintenance but we reduce inputs such as fertilizer and water, while adding texture, delineation and seasonal variances in color as noted in the photos.
Early June....
Late June...
The staff will continue with spot treatments for weeds in the coming weeks, to further enhance the quality of these areas. Thanks again for the positive feedback on the "High Rough areas.
Thank-you,
Pat O'Brien, MSM
Grounds Superintendent
