Lawn Improvements in Progress

Bryant Park Lawn: March 16, 2011

Lawn work began last Wednesday and is now in full swing in the center of the park. All that digging you see is part of the process to improve the lawn's drainage system in advance of a busy summer. We hope to eliminate muddy patches that develop in "problem areas" of the lawn throughout the season.

Before the new sod can be laid, we will also be removing a 20-inch-deep layer of soil from the entire area, and replenishing it with "clean" soil. Clean soil grows stronger roots, stronger roots grow stronger grass, and stronger grass lasts longer, so you can enjoy the lawn well into September.

And more signs of spring you'll spot around the park these days: people relaxing, and daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths growing in the gardens.
