Turf managers are sharing their experiences using Endurant throughout the summer and as they begin fall management preparations.
The images posted are a few of our favorite photos of Endurant turf colorants used on home lawns, farms, golf courses or sports fields that users shared in August. Endurant is used throughout the summer on cool and warm season grasses. Endurant is also the first choice for fall color preparations.
Endurant turf colorants are popular throughout the year on warm and cool season grasses, but fall is one of the most common times of the year for turfgrass professionals to consider color enhancers as cooler weather will begin to cause grass to lose color and chlorophyl, particularly in warm season grass varieties.
Nonetheless, cool season grasses were enhanced by the use of Endurant throughout this summer and leading into fall as well. Turfgrass professionals, Read More
It’s never too early to plan. What you do this fall and winter may be less expensive to choose now. There are several considerations to review when choosing whether to leave dormant turf as-is or whether to choose between traditional overseed, liquid overseed or both.
Q&A: Geoponics & Virginia Golf Course Superintendent Jay Wade
Each season has its challenges for growing healthy turfgrass. Particularly challenging is maintaining that vibrant green color expected by golf club members and tournament players, regardless of climate, weather or water restrictions.
So when Geoponics heard of a man in Virginia who maintained a green golf course throughout the year, throughout a multitude of growing conditions, pleasing members with his handling of warm season grasses even during cool weather, we wanted to hear how he did it. Golf Course Superintendent Jay Wade shares how he maintains healthy turf throughout the seasons.
Green grass during the winter months is made easy by painting dormant warm season grasses using Endurant colorant. As warm season grasses such as Bermuda, St. Augustine, Zoysia and Centipede go dormant, attaining green grass often requires either overseed or turf colorant.
Endurant turf colorant eliminates the need to over-seed lawns, golf courses and other grass areas while giving grass vibrant, natural-looking color throughout the winter. Overseeding with cool season grasses such as ryegrass is becoming less popular as the use of Endurant turf colorant continues gaining in popularity each year.
The benefits of using Endurant turf colorant are numerous when compared with the traditional practice of overseeding with ryegrass. Endurant turf colorant eliminates the seasonal transition challenges caused when ryegrass competes with the existing grass for nutrients and sunlight in the spring. As the warm season grasses come out of their dormancy, turfgrass where Endurant was applied is healthier than overseeded turfgrass. These agronomic benefits are also seen aesthetically in the spring with healthier looking turfgrass when Endurant was used in the winter compared with overseed.
Painting grass with Endurant turf colorant can also eliminate the need to mow the overseeded ryegrass throughout the fall, winter and spring months.
As environmental concerns continue to grow, Endurant turf colorant becomes an even better option. One of the best aspects of choosing turf colorant instead of overseed is that grass paints and lawn colorants prevent the need to over-fertilize and over-water the overseeded ryegrass lawns, golf courses and grass areas.
These add up to big savings economically as well.
