In the past I cored/verti drain first then scarrify 2-3 different directions, this year I did it in th opposite for some reason and still come up real good.

Add nutrients and over sow any bare or sparse areas.

Once seed has germinated and growing for a few weeks or so start cutting the green around 60cents -

A liquid feed to get young seedlings growing healthy and a fungicide should be sprayed for pythium

Lower height gradually maybe another light scarrify/ groom before dusting.

It really depends what condition the green is in before renovating on time frames.

Hope this helps a little

im sure theres other ideas out there

Dont expect advice off duuny mate unless you are $$$$$ up :mrgreen: hes going to be the next big thing in green keeping :smile:

A little bit easier for the plastic greens, only have to start up the leafblower and run around for a couple of minutes. :smile: :smile:

renovation of a plastic

Leaf blow everything into the middle.
Add enough wood for a good fire
wait until a nice Friday or Saturday night
Poor small amount of fuel on & light

An enojoyable fire and solved the problem of another piece of crap.

Alternatively hire a bulldozer and start again.

Think Im lost aswell. If its GG who is suggesting top dressing than I agree with him. Even if you think the green is perfectly flat, top dressing always promotes new growth. I think most greenkeepers top dress every year, some times twice.

There was no question asked about should I core before top dressing
