Winter Turf Blankets / Growth Covers
Winter Turf Blankets and Growth Covers
Maintaining a healthy and green turf is one of the most important aspects of stadium maintenance. A great way to get a boost on the spring season is by installing winter turf blankets / growth blankets. Turf covers work by creating a greenhouse effect for your grass that helps it retain moisture and heat. As a result, seeds will germinate more quickly, and their roots will develop more deeply. Covers allow air to circulate and breathe, promoting faster and healthier growth. They also delay dormancy of the grass for later season sports. Growth covers are used in many different environments including stadiums, golf courses, new construction projects, and race tracks.
Winter Turf Blankets / Growth Blankets are easily customized to individual sites. They are easy to install, and can usually be removed quickly and efficiently by a few people. They are usually held down at multiple points by pins, which can either pass through grommets or through the material itself. The material is formulated to let light pass through, thus harvesting the needed energy from the sun, and keeping that warmth in. In winter months, turf covers protect the turf from ice, wind, snow, and frost, and keep animals and people off the field. If you would like to make your turf greener, thicker, and more vibrant, a turf cover may be the perfect solution.
