Fraze Mowing Results

As a follow up to the example shown in the previous regional update from the West Region, this video shows the results of fraze mowing a bermudagrass fairway. Two years ago the superintendent used a big roll sod cutter to remove a fine-textured soil layer that had developed above coarse-textured, sand-capped fairways. Sand-based sod was installed and allowed to mature without overseeding the first winter. The following summer, fraze mowing was used to remove a heavy thatch layer from the new sod. The fairway was closed for four weeks each summer to recover from the aggressive fraze mowing – but the results have been impressive. Watch the video to see for yourself.
