These photos were taken in the Spring of 2014 in Lansing – MI. You are seeing the turf as it appeared immediately following its uncovering. GreenJacket® IMPERMEABLE covers & AFS Insulation protected the greens from ice damage, crown hydration, desiccation and helped to keep the turf dormant during those freeze-thaw-freeze cycles, resulting in healthy green turf in the Spring. No Power Backpack blower was used. Only PASSIVE Air was moving naturally under the snow and ice load. Covers went down the beginning of December just in time for the first snow and then a Rainstorm followed just a few days after leaving the entire Mid Michigan area covered in ICE and Snow for more than 120 days!
