Abstract/Contents:"The need for improved drainage becomes particularly conspicuous in the early spring. Unfortunately, low spots on turf are too often handled in much the same manner as is the leaky roof by the shiftless home owner; -in wet weather the job can not be done and in dry weather it does not seem to be needed. During the wet periods in the spring there should be a thorough checking of low areas where water stands on the turf. Diagrams or careful notes made at that time will make it possible later to install tile drains where necessary or to regardss the areas by lifting the sod, filling in the depressions and replacing the sod. Such jobs done in the spring may prevent the development of large dead patches of turf on those areas in the summer."
