Guess Who Else Thinks We Need More Green?

South Shore is a beautiful place, but I believe all places could benefit from having a little more landscaping. Looks like Tiger Woods agrees, too! How are you feeling about the possible change?

According to a report by the Chicago Tribune, [Tiger] Woods could be involved in a Chicago golf course project involving Bandon Dunes owner Mike Keiser. NBC/Golf Channel’s Mark Rolfing told the Tribune the Woods hiring is “not a done deal,” but Keiser believes the 14-time major champ “is on board” and that he may waive his design fee since the course will benefit the First Tee of Greater Chicago.

The project, which would create a championship golf course out of two existing public tracks, Jackson Park and South Shore courses, is not a done deal yet, either. Although the involvement of Keiser and Woods would help in the development that would have some holes along the lakefront and be just steps away from the Obama Library. Having the support of the golf-loving President wouldn’t hurt, either.

In an email to the Tribune, Woods’ spokesman, Glenn Greenspan, said, “At this time, we have no new design projects to announce.”

Rolfing said Woods took a tour of the property last month and two-time Masters champ and renowned course designer Ben Crenshaw has also checked out the site. Rolfing hopes the project will include a short course for kids and quick rounds, and Keiser envisions it being a walking-only facility like Bandon Dunes.

What You Can Grow In Shady Spaces

All shade is not equal. Some shady conditions will yield much more produce than others will, while some areas are better left for hostas and moss. Gardeners should be familiar with the different types of shade, but should also keep in mind that measuring how much shade your garden gets isn’t always easy.

Article: How to Get Rid of Crabgrass for Good

The best weapon you have against this annual weed is crabgrass preemergence herbicide (also called crabgrass preventer). You apply this product in the spring before the crabgrass seed sprouts. This granular herbicide works by creating a chemical barrier at the surface of the soil. As the seeds begin germination, they take in the herbicide and die.
