XGD Systems is back in Full Swing, Mother Nature is Not

After a great two weeks in the Pacific Northwest where we just completed our first installations to raving reviews, I am at the XGD desk again this morning sending out some corporate happenings amidst a really busy time here at XGD.
XGD Supervisor David Welsh and crew have embarked on a large 20 green installation project at Pine Hollow Country Club in East Norwich, NY on Long Island. But, Mother Nature’s fierce ability to hang on to Old Man Winter for this extended period of time is seriously hampering XGD production on all current field projects. David is several greens in to the project and sent some great photos of XGD effectiveness after a heavy precipitation event and the soil has reached saturation point:

Check out the water streaking across this green as all the open pore space is filled with useless gravitational groundwater and cannot complete one of Mother Natures “natural flush and fills”, which performs a much needed soil gas exchange that the green below minutes earlier had already achieved, and is much happier for it:

There is a ton of standing water behind the green and right down the fairway, but the putting surface has achieved moisture control and a soil gas flush. AHH, agronomic bliss

So, give us a shout if we can help take your putting, and or fine turf playing surfaces to this level.

Cheers, Poor Old Dirt & Grass Farmer
