A: No, but it doesn’t hurt to add a little more every few years, especially for dog owners

A: Similar to how they sand the greens at a golf course, this helps to create a smoother surface for a better roll and can also increase the green speed by adding more sand

A: For any dog owners, Zeolite or Envirofill will work. If you have children under the age of 5, Envirofill is the right choice as it’s 100% non-toxic, even if accidentally ingested. Better safe than sorry!
