Snow Cover

The cold weather has returned to Cincinnati very rapidly this season. What does this mean for the turf at Hyde Park? Snow Cover especially on the Zoysia grass fairways is a pleasant sight to see. Meyer Zoysia has one of the highest cold tolerances for a warm season grass. With that said, it is a warm season grass, extreme temperatures and desiccation can cause plant injury. Snow cover can help insulate the turfgrass plant from the extreme temperatures and wind. So let it Snow!!!
