Trees and turf
Sometimes these pictures are just too good not to share. This spring the irrigation to the small putting green was overhauled as the construction project destroyed the old lines. The red dotted line is showing the trench line. The grass opposite the trench from the trees (or to the right of the red dashed line) is no long competing with tree roots because they were severed by the trencher.
The line that appears in the left of the photo is simply leaves that are caught in the ornamental grasses. The big story is in the really green healthy grass.
