"It’s the best the grass has come back in my time here"
Head Groundsman Allen Johnson

Green Bay Packers resolutely opts for Desso GrassMaster

Training and games

Super Bowl XLV-winner Green Bay Packers plays and trains on five Desso GrassMaster playing surfaces. Training fields equipped with the hybrid grass system include the Clark Hinkle and Ray Nitschke Field. Also the Lambeau stadium field was injected with Desso GrassMaster synthetic fibers. 

Withstands extreme temperatures

The NFL top team was in search for a system that would keep their turf in the best possible condition regardless of the extreme temperatures in the region and without losing the natural feel. The Pack chose Desso GrassMaster reinforced natural grass and first installed it at Clark Hinkle field, one of the two outdoor practice facilities. The synthetic fibers injected into the field did what they were expected to do: strengthen the turf and giving it the chance to better recuperate after the winter season or rough matches.

Given their positive experience with the reinforced turf at their training facilities, the Lambeau stadium field was up for a ‘GrassMaster injection’. Head Groundsman Allen Johnson about Lambeau Field: “Our GrassMaster surface, a synthetic and real grass mixture, was challenged with two of the biggest tests possible in the two play-off games in January. I had an idea what to expect, but I just didn’t know how it would hold up. In April, there was grass coming up everywhere. The field survived after a game-time blizzard against Seattle and the game-time arctic-like temperatures against the New York Giants! It’s the best the grass has come back in my time here.”
