CoverLawn as its name suggests, is a cover which is placed over your turf areas. It is easy for course staff to install and it protects your natural turf from damage. Simply roll it out, peg it down, and watch your natural grass grow from beneath.
CoverLawn is unique. It is an open synthetic turf, with no backing. Via a knitting technique, the synthetic fibres create a braid of knots, and when stretched, these braids form a honeycomb of holes.
These holes allow the natural turf to grow through, and the fibres protect the sward from damage.
A true hybrid solution for golf. Creating safe, stable natural turf areas. CoverLawn can be laid over seed, instant turf, or an existing turf area.
CoverLawn is a Hybrid Grass Solution. Your natural grass is integrated into the honeycomb base structure, with each honeycomb cell allowing the natural grass to grow through and start an integration process. The integration strengthens the wear area of the naturally growing grass.
CoverLawn applications are wide and varied.
