GreenJacket® Permeable Grow-In Covers Help With Just That, Grow-In

When heat is wanted to assist the turf and soil in warming up, the GreenJacket® PERMEABLE grow-in covers act in conjunction with the sun’s power to create a greenhouse effect. However, being PERMEABLE the grow-in cover will allow the turf and soil to breathe but at the same time retain moisture and dramatically increase the sun’s ability to heat up the underlying turf.

The PERMEABLE covers are great for overnight Frost Protection, helping to eliminate Tee Time starting delays in the late fall and early spring. See the University of Nebraska- Lincoln’s study by Dr. Bill Kreuser on “Seeding Greens” for the first-hand performance of the GreenJacket PERMEABLE Grow-in Cover.

Yes, and No, it depends on your weather patterns and the type of turf you are looking to protect. If you experience heavy snow cover which sometimes melts during temperature fluctuations, you run the risk of Crown Hydration and or Ice damage due to the cover allowing water to enter through the weave of the material and remain on the putting surface. If you experience rain without snow cover and temperatures reach unseasonable high levels, the risk is that the woven covers act like greenhouses and can cause the turf to come out of dormancy and start the growth process leaving the turf vulnerable to low-temperature kill, Crown hydration, and or Ice damage. Many factors have to be considered when using Permeable covers for Winter protection, If you are in the southern states where warmer temps are more common during the winter months and experience shorter times of below-freezing temperatures, then the Permeable covers are great for this type of climate.

With the risks expressed in the previous question for the PERMEABLE type covers, GreenJacket®IMPERMEABLE covers, with Rip-Stop Reinforcement, turf protection system, provide a unique combination of patented products to protect from the harsh effects winter can have on open turf. GreenJacket® IMPERMEABLE covers provide protection against crown hydration, the #1 turf killer in the north. GreenJacket® provides a protective IMPERMEABLE barrier layer against ice damage, as it never reaches the turf! The covers are also effective against desiccation, as the winds are virtually deflected off the GreenJacket® cover and away from the underlying turf. In addition to crown hydration, ice damage, and desiccation, GreenJackets® regulated light transmission rates are able to minimize temperature fluctuations helping to keep turf dormant during mid-winter warm-ups and control overgrowth in the spring. You can see results from our Winter Cover Research Studies here that compared our IMPERMEABLE GreenJacket to our competitors Woven Clear coated material.
