Question:"We have three greens that are in a location close to a creek in which water flows continuously, yet they are sufficiently high above the water in the creek to permit good drainage if they were tiled. In late spring and summer the grounds on these greens becomes sour, and we are of the opinion that this results from the fact that the water does not get away fast enough. Is fall the proper time of year for tiling?"
Source of Question:Illinois
Answer/Response:"Fall and early winter are good times to install drainage systems. The freezing and thawing of the soil will open up channels to the drains so that by the next spring they should function properly. It might be well for you also to check up on the air drainage over your three greens to make sure that no underbrush and trees are interfering with the proper air circulation."
