Fayetteville, NC - When minor league baseball returns in 2021, the Fayetteville Woodpeckers can look forward to home games in the newly built Segra stadium in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Meanwhile, the grounds crew is working to keep the Bermuda grass field in top condition with Evergreen turf covers from Covermaster.
A member of the Carolina League, the team is a Class A affiliate of the Houston Astros and shares the field with other events like the Big South Conference Baseball Tournament and the Armed Forces Invitational Baseball Tournament. An order of close to 119,000 square feet of Evergreen Spectrum turf blankets, supplied earlier this year, will help to stimulate the turf’s growth and ensure that it’s well-established for the next playing season.
Evergreen turf growth blankets retain the natural heat and moisture needed to speed up seed germination and promote deep root development. The orange-hued Evergreen Spectrum is able to optimize specific colors in the light spectrum, encouraging even quicker green-up. The eight sections of turf cover will protect the field throughout the winter, avoiding damage from wind, ice, snow, or frost.
Evergreen turf growth blankets are used worldwide on natural turf sports fields. Not only do turf covers promote accelerated growth, but they’re also ideal for quick turf repairs. The lightweight blankets are easy to install and remove, and can be customized for size and shape.
