The National Park Service Protects Its $40 million Investment in Growing Grass on the National Mall. Every day 30,000 people walk over the national front lawn. On Inauguration Day, some 800,000 to 1,000,000 are expected.
The technology to protect turf is a relatively recent invention, too. For the inauguration, contractors are bringing in special panels, 16 square feet each, to cover up the grass. To the human eye, they look white, but they’re actually translucent, which allows light to reach the grass and keep it healthy. The bottoms of the panels are honeycombed with small, square cells that protect the grass crowns from being crushed and act like mini greenhouses.Posted by Jill Fallon at January 19, 2017 6:25 PM | Permalink
