Someday my field will be awesome!

But this year will not see that day. I need a heavy rain or some serious watering to compact the sand and mulch, as well as probably some mixing. 

We bought a roller and I watered tonight and then rolled. The watered half was better but the dogs still run into loose footing on tight turns. The weave poles also create divets. I won’t water again until we get the backflow on the irrigation lines because then I can hook into that instead of using softened water. It’s just not worth it.

So we shall play on the dry stuff and see how it goes. I am really wishing i had bought used turf instead for out there. Skip the mulch and sand, save the $6000 and bought turf. Oh well, live and learn I guess.
