Indianapolis, IN - Turf blankets are an essential tool for stadium groundskeepers, helping to keep both playing and practice fields in top condition all season long. In Indianapolis, Evergreen turf covers are the blanket of choice for practice fields used by the NFL’s Colts.
Just shy of 62,000 square feet of Evergreen Premium turf covers arrived in time for spring training this year, a follow-up to a similar order placed last year that produced successful results. Now two of the team’s natural turf practice fields are protected from environmental damage, including frost, erosion, and sudden temperature drops, while benefiting from the greenhouse effect that leads to earlier spring green-ups.
Though the team’s home field at Lucas Oil Stadium is an artificial turf surface, it’s crucial that players have access to both types of turf. Game preparation includes team practices on the same surface used in the upcoming week’s game, whether artificial or natural.
Evergreen Premium turf growth blankets offer a patented lace coating technology that protects and accelerates the growth of new and established grass. The shape and size can be customized using ordinary scissors and is secured randomly anywhere on the covers and is not restricted to grommets locations, as is the ase with other covers. Each turf cover is UV-treated, rot- and mildew-resistant, and stands up to wear and tear for years. Thanks to the proven greenhouse effect, teams enjoy a longer growing season on thicker, healthier turf.
