“It’s like nothing I have seen before, it’s very quick to repair, I won’t be using anything else.” – Adam Tudor, Barlaston Golf Club.
The response we are getting from this new product is complimentary to say the least. Its deep emerald green appearance is so appealing and it’s extremely hardwearing with rapid repair qualities. The fine appearance has been well received on the golf course where it has been used successfully on pathways, heavy wear areas and more recently it has been trailed on tees.
During trials this turf has proven to very drought tolerant and even through the very warm weather experienced in 2018 it retained its dense quality and deep green colour
Creeping rye for sports is suitable for football goal mouths, run lines and any sporting area where traditionally wear has been a challenge. When combined with our hybrid range the results have been outstanding.
Our range of hybrid turf has been installed in 1000’s of installations across Europe.
From years of experience developing this hybrid range, it is fully understood that not all wear challenges are the same. The full hybrid range is designed with specific wear challenges in mind. In some instances, a grade may be adapted to create the perfect solution for a specific issue, it may be a simple tweak such as changing the pile height, but it will make all the difference once in situ.
Coverlawn is constructed with an extremely strong knotted polyester underside into which polyethylene pile of grass is attached. The density of the underside starts at 1000 denier and the pile length starts from 12mm.
We have thought hard about introducing a product that is not entirely natural into our range, after much research and consideration of many ecological challenges we believe that this is a good half way house option and deserves a place sitting alongside our other extremely environmentally friendly products.
Hybrid turf reduces environmental damage over synthetic options and also the use of chemicals required to optimise growth of 100% pure grass which would otherwise turn to mud without chemical intervention.
CL1201 Winter Tees
This new knitted construction hybrid turf reinforces and protects natural grass from the root system up.
Winter Tees is specifically designed for golf tees, driving ranges and par 3,4 and 5 courses, the short piles (12mm) together with the hole size and strong underside mean that integration with natural grass is a rapid process.
Installation of our hybrid turf is quick and easy as it can be laid directly onto an existing mown turf surface or can be seeded. When seeding the hybrid mat will also act as a germination blanket encouraging quick growth and faster integration in cooler conditions.
Do your members prefer to play on a grass tee box rather than an artificial playing surface? Would you like the ability to keep summer tees in play all year round?
There are many ways this hybrid turf can improve play on the golf course, see our website for further information before & after photos and case studies. CoverLawn®
NRT2202 Pathway Lite
The turf sporting industry is doing its best to move back to a natural grass path where possible. Hybrid turf enables this to happen. Natural grass paths are the first preference of walkway however with the foot traffic and the expectance of year-round play this makes having a grass pathway quite challenging leaving the need to look at other options.
We believe grass pathways are an important route to pursue however we also accept that they need a bit of a helping hand, which is where our hybrid turf comes into play. Enabling all the natural pros of a grass pathway such as the drainage, aesthetics and environmental qualities but making sure the walkway can handle the traffic as not to undo all the hard work.
Integrating with the root system and sitting amongst the grass sword the light pathway takes all the wear whilst protecting the crown of the plant and aintaining the look of the natural grass sword above. CoverLawn®
NRT3002 Pathway Natural
Pathway Natural differs from pathway lite. The backing is slightly stronger, the pile on top is slightly longer at 38mm, and it is made of a different material which creates more friction making it ideal for use on slopes.
The combination of green piles with the use of brown strands to replicate thatch means that the topping looks very natural so even when first installed it will blend in well with the environment. Once integrated even in extremes cases of wear the product still looks very natural and provides excellent cover should some wear occur.
NRT3002 is perfect for hills, embankments, heavy traffic pathways and any area where natural grass may struggle. Itwill help the natural grass to cope with the heavy wear yet retain a strong root system. This product can be used in temporary or permanent situations, for example it is a good choice for concerts held on sporting stadiums where heavy footfall and bad weather conditions may cause severe damage and be very costly to repair.
Pathway Natural also stabilises the ground making it suitable for disabled use outdoors, as the ground can be strengthened, providing a stable grassed area all year round. CoverLawn®
