Frisco, TX - Maintaining a natural turf MLS soccer field is no easy feat, especially when it’s part of a complex as large as the Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas. The soccer-specific venue is home to FC Dallas and will soon draw visitors to the new site of the National Soccer Hall of Fame, scheduled to open later this year.
Outside of the main stadium, the facility has 17 regulation-size natural and artificial turf soccer fields. But it was the stadium playing field that recently received a shipment of 104,000 square feet of Evergreen Premium turf blankets. Five panels of turf growth blankets, along with five TarpMate air rollers, are a welcome addition to the stadium’s field maintenance program and were put to the test earlier this year.
“New blankets installed today. 5 blankets in less than 2 hrs with five guys in 20mph wind.” This resounding testament was tweeted by Allen Reed, Director of Stadium Grounds for FC Dallas.
With its Smart Edge Technology, Evergreen turf covers do not require grommets and can be pegged down anywhere. This results in a much quicker and more secure installation.
Evergreen Premium turf covers not only protect the grass surface but help to accelerate new growth by creating a greenhouse effect that produces thicker turf with better color. Ideal for varying climates, Evergreen can protect turf from frost as successfully as it can speed up repairs after concerts or even other sporting events.
Each turf cover is UV treated, rot- and mildew-resistant, and can stand up to years of use, which is crucial when maintaining a professional soccer field. From grass type and height to the speed of the surface, keeping the turf in top shape requires the best in turf protection.
