Grassland Raking

A monumental amount of raking was done on the Turf Nursery to clear of the thick layer of thatch there to allow the emerging plants to push through and to reduce the nutrient input into the very diversity area of plantlife. A big thank you to all the hard work everyone put in! And to Abbie for the photos.
