September - October 2008

In September we began grading and seeding tile trench backfill, we leveled off the backfill with a dozer blade, followed by fine grading and preparation for seeding with landscape rake.  We used a broadcast technique to distribute cool season grass mixture with a 4 wheeler and then used a harrow to lightly cover the seed.    Mowing was delayed until after July 15th to avoid disturbing wildlife nesting. During the fall we mowed the dikes to allow new seeding a greater chance of success.

The landscape rake did an excelent job in preparing the soil

 

The Bobcat Toolcat was used for all of the grading, seeding, and mowing.  The unique capability of the Bobcat Toolcat to move along the dike with the wheels crabbed made the mowing more effient and safer.
