Dublin, Ireland - The site of Gaelic games like football and hurling will soon be home to an extensive turf growth cover system.
As players and fans gear up for another season of their favorite sports, Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland will be putting 14 new sections of Evergreen® turf covers to work.
Already familiar with the proven turf covers, Croke Park’s Pitch Manager, Stuart Wilson, decided to invest in Evergreen® Radiant covers, along with 14 inflatable TarpMate™ air rollers.
Dating back to 1884, Croke Park is the third largest stadium in Europe with a capacity of 82,300. Along with Gaelic Games, the venue hosts international sporting, cultural, and musical events. The 130,000 square feet of turf growth blankets will not only protect against harsh weather conditions but make it easier to do quick turf repairs between games. Designed to speed up seed germination, promote deep root development, and encourage earlier spring green-up, turf blankets serve as a valuable management tool worldwide.
Evergreen® Radiant’s specialized silver coating radiates heat back to the soil, creating a greenhouse effect that leads to a longer growing season and thicker turf with better color. Easy to install and remove, especially when used with TarpMate™ air rollers, winter turf blankets are effective in all climates.
