Season and Application Updates

A Note About Our Turf . . .

SWCDP is committed to providing a green and grassy park, plenty of natural turf for 2 and 4 Legged enjoyment. Our pooches love to run on and roll in the grass for as long into the season as possible. The turf endures very heavy foot and paw traffic, the soil is heavily compacted by season’s end. For this reason, we require an annual closing period each spring. We excavate the most trafficked areas, aerate, fertilize and seed. While the new shoots sprout quickly – it takes time for the new turf to become strong enough to handle the high activity that comes with every opening season.
