Allen Park, MI - When 180,000 square feet of Evergreen Radiant turf covers arrived at the Detroit Lions’ practice facility in Allen Park, Michigan in late October, it was the two smaller turf blankets that were high on the priority list.
With winter weather just around the corner, having the two 60x300-foot turf covers would make it easier to work on the center portion of the field without pulling out the winter turf covers. Wear and tear down the middle of the NFL team’s field means more frequent fixes, and the lightweight turf blankets are ideal for quick turf repairs, encouraging germination and providing protection from wind, ice, snow, and frost. Highly visible pink powder-coated anchor pegs make installation easy and ensure that no pegs get left behind.
Winter turf blankets help the fields retain natural heat and moisture, which speeds up seed germination and promotes deep root development. Also ideal for soccer fields, turf growth blankets use a specialized silver coating that radiates heat back into the soil while allowing the right amount of ventilation to reach the grass. In colder climates, Evergreen Radiant can guard against frost and winter kill and then produce earlier spring green-ups due to the cover’s greenhouse effect.
Evergreen turf protectors are UV treated, rot and mildew resistant, and stand up to years of regular use. Thanks to a quick two-week turnaround, the covers arrived at Allen Park in time to guard the turf against dropping temperatures and enhance repairs.
