Some sod put down on Ruttan Street and Van Horne Street. City contracts paid for by the Thunder Bay taxpayer.
Even with the cool wet weather we have had since this sod was laid down, there appears to be some brown areas appearing.
When grass turns brown, that’s a bad thing, right?
Sadly, a large portion of the sod placed on city contracts dies. Two reasons for this:
- The sod is placed on sand.
- The sod is not watered. Ever.
Grass, like all plants, needs food and water to grow. Simple.
Van Horne also has cracks in the concrete retaining wall.
My understanding is that the cracks were there when the forms were removed. Maybe the next day at the latest.
