USGA Summary Points:While construction of a 20-cm deep sand cap would provide equal air to water filled porosity with this sand if it were placed above a capillary barrier such as in a green, this study will evaluate the impacts of capping depths on substrates that wick water. Bermudagrass sprig establishment time was increased as capping depth increased during the establishment period, however, all plots reached full establishment by May 2015 after being sprigged in late summer 2014. Despite a very dry 2015 summer, no significant differences in turf quality or percent green cover due to irrigation frequencies of 1 and 2 times per week (at 60% of reference evapotranspiration) were observed, regardless of sand capping depth. SAR is rapidly approaching sodic (SAR ā‰„ 13) conditions in both sandy loam and clay subsoils, however, this increase has been delayed by sand-capping. This study may lend insight into how recommendations for the physical properties of capping sands may differ from those currently used for USGA putting greens.
