We started out with verti-cutting greens. We adjusted the vertical blades to cut down at 1/8 of an inch. Seems like we got a good amount of thatch and debris from the greens surface. These channels will allow a good place for the sand topdressing to fill in along with aiding in thatch management and plant health.
