The new Lely Turf Cover

New for 2013 is the Lely Turf Cover for Toro DT and 855 Sprinklers. Lely has developed an artificial turf cover for these popular pop-up sprinklers especially for football and sports venues, golf courses and other sites wanting sprinklers to blend seamlessly into the surrounding grass.

Following successful field-testing at HampdenPark stadium, this ancillary product is now available. And Lely’s Toro Irrigation national sales manager Robert Jackson is anticipating particular demand among football stadiums and golf courses hosting televised events.

“We developed this add-on product because televised venues want the sprinklers to simply disappear into grass, giving that pristine, all-over green appearance that looks so good on screen,” he comments.

To demonstrate the sprinkler covers in action, Lely has produced a four-minute video at field-testing venue HampdenPark – visit

HampdenPark’s head groundsman Stephen Bache, seen in the video, is a fan of the new sprinkler covers. “As a televised venue, it’s important for us that the pitch looks its very best and so having the sprinklers blend in with the grass further improves the stadium’s aesthetics. We’re very pleased with them.”
