In the first week of October the golf course had new sod installed over many of the worst areas.  Approximately 28 pallets of sod were installed.  

 

Tee Box Sodding

The tee boxes on holes 3 and 6 have all new sod.  There will still be some imperfections that will be dealt with next growing season. The picture below shows the number 3 tee box being re sodded.  

 

Greens Aeration

The greens were aerated and topdressed for the second time this season.  We have seen a lot of improvement in the greens now that they are receiving the proper cultural practices on a regular basis.

 

New Tee Markers & Divot Sand Buckets

 

Hole #2 Drainage Problem

Multiple drainage basins were installed and connected to larger pre-installed drainage structures to allow this area to drain more efficiently and avoid water puddling.

 

Golf Mulch Removal

To offer a long-term, lower cost solution for the mulch landscape beds surrounding the golf course, many sections are being replaced with either pine straw or crushed coquina stone.  The crushed coquina lends itself to the links style of the course and as an added bonus it will rarely need fresh material to keep up its clean appearance. 

 

Common Grounds

Throughout the property we have begun redefining landscape beds that were previously left unmaintained.  To prepare for mulch we first redefine the edge of the bed.  

To complete this throughout the entire property will take months.  Old mulch will also be removed and new pine straw and pine bark nuggets will be installed offering a much cleaner and attractive appearance.

 

Annual Flower Bed Installation

As flowers are one of the most noticed parts of our landscape we are planning several new flower beds near the entryways of Harbour Village.  Fresh soil and slow release fertilizers are used to amend the planting beds allowing the annual flowers to thrive from day one!  

 

 

In order to assure the highest quality flower selection for the residents of Harbour Village we are working closely with a local grower who is always getting our next round of plants ready.  This December look for yellow and purple pansies.  Select smaller beds will get some holiday colors with the addition of Poinsettias.
