Pleasantville, NY used Grow-in PERMEABLE Cover to re-establish putting green.
These photos were taken in the Spring of 2013 in Pleasantville, New York. In the first photo to your left, you are seeing the turf before covering in the FALL of 2012 as it appeared and then immediately following its uncovering in 2013. GreenJacket® PERMEABLE covers allow the soil to breathe through the winter months, The GreenJacket PERMEABLE cover also protects the turf from frost and desiccation damage. As the days get warmer, the cover acts with the sun’s power in creating a greenhouse effect heating up the turf while aiding in bringing up the soil temp, resulting in healthy green turf in the Spring!
Here is a quote from the Superintendent.
“The permeable covers are continuing to perform great and I am very pleased with them. I used them this past winter on my driving range tee to help with early germination and I re grassed and expanded my putting green this past October. I top-dressed it on the heavier side and covered it through the winter and actually had to mow it on January 10th because it had grown a considerable amount. The attached pictures will show you. If I need any more covers in the future I will be in touch with you.”
