?If Mrs. Webster wants to start from scratch, she will first have to strip the topsoil and contour the green area according to her inclination. Then the area must be covered with topsoil that has enough sand to allow water to percolate through, sufficient organic materials to hold the water and enough clay to hold its contours. Finally the surface should be graded, fertilized and seeded either with Colonial Bent seed (for thin texture) or Velvet Bent seed (thick) or Creeping Bent seed (coarse). A short cut used by Lowell Thomas on his course (SI, Aug. 12) is to buy greenhouse turf and transplant this to the stripped and graded area. If Mrs. Webster needs further details, she should write to Mitchell Bros., North Sutton, N.H.—ED.
