The most important point is that any moss MUST be killed off using an appropriate moss killer such as sulphate of iron before even thinking about getting the scarifying machine out of the shed. At the start of the month we sprayed 'soi' on the surrounds, tees and fairways. Failing to kill the moss properly will just result in the moss being chopped up and spread about the course - often leaving you with more moss than you started with.
For us greenkeepers scarifying would be very difficult using the above methods, which is why we have this beauty of a machine... the Sisis Hydraulic Veemo. This machine allows us to cover big areas in little time.

A tidy fairway is a happy fairway :)
Next job on the fairways is to spray with a water soluble fertiliser, to encourage plant appearance and growth......
