The trenches will be filled with pea gravel and pipe. We will install risers with drain grates to catch surface runoff and the trenches will carry sub surface water.
The design of our system includes perpendicular lines referred to as intercepter lines, spaced twenty feet apart. This spacing pushes the limits of drainage systems, but should improve the area.
A drainage system is complex, and the spacing of drain line depends on the hydraulic conductivity (HC). Are you sleeping yet? That is, the soils ability to transmit water when subjected to a hydraulic gradient. HC is defined by Darcy's law, which I will go into detail in a private consultation with anyone who wishes to participate. However, for sake of friendships, I will forego any elaboration at this time.
We will work on high ground, off plywood today, it's a little sloppy. Yesterday's winds were helping, then we awoke to this!

Here you can see the amount of buckthorn that was growing on the bank. The removal of this woody material will improve the air circulation and make the growing conditions more conducive for quality turf.

The Turn and family dining areas are also taking shape. The first photo of family dining shows a view of the old golf lobby, and the facing wall will be where the hostess will great you. The opening to the right is the entrance to the restrooms.
The last phot is from the family dining looking out towards one white.
The weather looks good for skating next week. Get ready to lace em up.
I'm putting on the foil,

be family dining, is complete. The area is starting to take on its final design. I hope to have photos of fixtures, woodwork, and acrylic panels next week.
We are repairing some drainage on the course, as well as cleaning up some old stumps.
Ralph went swimming today, crazy dog!
Have a great weekend,
