Fun With Sports Turf

Fun with Sports Turf. The 50cm below the turf is mainly sand and gravel, so rain drains to the bottom zone quickly.

July Rain Data

Fascinating look back at last month’s soil moisture data at one location. As the rain soaks in, the 4 zones change %VWC. 4 zones x 11.5cm each down to 50cm depth.

The top zone (-1.0cm to -12.5cm) starts off drier than zone 2 or 3, respond immediately to rain, and then drains quickly.
