Turf Rehabilitation at McDowell and Nieblas Parks

Posted on February 23, 2017 at 2:24 PM by Communications Team

California’s drought has taken a toll on the grass at many of Fountain Valley’s parks. That’s why the City is going to be providing the grass at McDowell and Nieblas Parks with some tender, loving care during the next several months.

The turf rehabilitation began in late February and will continue through April. The first step was a drill and fill process, in which thousands of 1.25 inch diameter holes that are 8 inches deep were drilled and filled with sand to encourage deeper root growth and moisture retention. After the drill and fill was complete, the area was hydroseeded. A temporary fence was installed around the area during this phase to protect the area and give the new grass a chance to establish.

The temporary fencing will remain up until late April and will only limit access to the areas of turf that are being rehabilitated. Playground equipment will be accessible throughout all phases of the project.
