Managing Winter Turf

Harsh winter conditions like snow and ice often cause turf damage, while dry weather and freezing temperatures can delay spring transition from dormant to green turf.

Many golf course superintendents and professional turf managers have used synthetic covers, anti-desiccant sprays, and heavy sand topdressing to offset winter injury and speed spring green-up.

A cost-effective addition to your management program are LawnLift™ turf colorants.  University research shows that turf treated with permanent turf colorants absorbs more solar radiation in the winter and spring. This elevates soil and surface temperatures, creating a more desirable micro-climate.

Applying LawnLift™ Green Grass Paint can decrease winter  turf injury and promote rapid spring green-up, while instantly adding a healthy, natural-looking color. LawnLift™ Green Grass Paint leaves a healthy thin coating on the leaf surface to promote adhesion of the colorants and helps protect against winter desiccation.  The dark green color will persist under snow cover and when exposed to sunlight during the spring thaw, it will supplement turf canopy warm up which leads to faster green-up. Follow the manufacturer’s recommended application of LawnLift™ Green Grass Paint for final mix solution to achieve the desired color.
