Lake Maintenance

As I mentioned in my daily email to the Members yesterday, we are working on erosion control around our Lake on Hole #1, #10 and #18. We recently had some areas of the lake's bank restored and now we are in the process of trying to grow some grass along the bank in order to keep it from eroding again. First, we seeded around the bank and then we installed a burlap fabric over the seed in order to hold the seed in place, provide some shade for the seed and hold in the moisture so that the seed can germinate. Once the seed germinates the grass will grow through the burlap fabric and the fabric, over time, will decompose. We will also be topdressing the seed and fabric with a thin layer of sand to help in the process of growing new grass around the bank of the lake.
