|The rear bunkers are surrounded by Dwarf Fountain Grass.|
The lovely Dwarf Fountain Grass (Pennisetum) didn't go quietly. Even after scalping the area down with a mower, the grasses were too thick to use a sod cutter, and jammed our small rototillers. A larger rototiller couldn't be used on the slopes, so we were left with one solution: Dig each plant out by hand. Yes, this is the kind of labor-intensive setback that is difficult to foresee, but perhaps should have been expected.
As always, the crew persevered without complaint and showed these tenacious plants who's boss. Again, the actual bunker work was simple compared to this.
We're anticipating installing the Matrix liner this week, with sod and sand to follow. These may not be large bunkers, but it will be nice to have two more checked off the list.
