We took the rootmat off one shovel full at a time. The idea was to save some of the sand on the face and re-use it on the bottom of the bunker to raise the floor. So the bunker will be a little wider and a little less deep ie easier to walk in and out of.

We also lowered the sprinkler head which was no doubt raised several times over the years to accommodate the raising grass level around it.
