A Great Winter Job

Despite the prolonged snow cover this winter, the crew was able to get some of the high traffic areas and cart path ends sodded.  Installing sod at this time has several advantages over doing it in-season. 

First, with cool temperatures and plenty of moisture, there's no concern about the sod drying out.  We can also easily re-route the limited amount of cart traffic around these areas during the winter.  Lastly, despite no foliar growth during the winter, the sod does produce roots, giving it a head start for this season.

While the foliage is definitely dormant, the sod has started to root over the winter.
