When backfilling with sand is a bad thing.
We found that an old repair had been back filled with straight sand. While sand is a great backfill material for the purposes of settling, it created a different growing medium with a different water requirement. The result was an area where the turf would struggle when the dry weather would come. We will excavate a foot of this material and backfill with root zone mix to more closely match the rest of the fairway.
