Good Morning Kingsmill.

Remnants of Hurricane Zeta will arrive in our area later this morning. Rain and wind are expected throughout the afternoon and overnight. Winds could gust as high as 50 mph.

We are working to complete as much as possible ahead of the rain. We started our fall color swap around the Resort this week. We are currently installing solid red and solid white Pansies. We protect our Pansies with a product named Deer Scram. This all natural organic product has proven to work for us the last two seasons. The odor is non offensive to humans and creates a border of protection around your plants or landscape beds. It trains animals away and reapplication is not as critical as it is with other products following light rainfall.

Have a Wonderful Day.

Good Morning Kingsmill.

The good news is that the weather for Saturday looks great! Unfortunately the next few days aren’t shaping up to be the best. Foggy this morning, mostly cloudy this afternoon, and a high of 76. Rain from Tropical Storm Zeta will move through our area Thursday and into early Friday. We all know that the forecast changes rapidly so let’s hope for less rain and more sunshine!

The DryJect process on the Plantation Course greens was a success yesterday. The damp conditions were not ideal for the final brushing to work the sand into the turf canopy. This is a minor issue and will improve with a day or two of growth and the first mowing.

Have a Wonderful Day.

Good Morning Kingsmill.

Be prepared for a foggy start to your morning. When the fog clears we will have cloudy skies and a high temperature of 69 degrees today.

The golf courses are still very wet and we will remain Cart Path Only today.

We are DryJecting the Plantation Course greens today. We began the process yesterday with a 0.160″ core aerification. During today’s DryJect process we will apply 10 tons of sand per acre into 4″ deep holes on a 3″ x 3″ spacing. This process helps to dilute organic matter which will ultimately contribute to firmer putting surfaces. Our long term Agronomic Plan includes DryJecting greens annually. The Plantation Course will benefit the most from DryJecting. The 35 year old greens mix on the Plantation Course has a very high organic matter content. These high organic matter levels restrict drainage. Moisture Management is key to maintaining quality cool season putting greens in the Transition Zone. An afternoon thunderstorm in July is our greatest challenge on greens with restricted drainage. High moisture levels plus high heat equal rapid decline for cool season turf.

Q: Why do we DryJect?

A: To dilute organic matter and improve drainage.

Thank You for your continued support and understanding as we complete fall greens aerification.

Have a Wonderful Day.
