Good question. Does grass actually stay green under the snow all winter up here in the north. And then turn brown in the spring after the snow melts?
I was planning on uncovering some grass each week all winter. I never got around to it. But for the first month or so it stayed green under the snow.
Keep in mind about sod--its slow--it will be dark green later on, a couple of weeks later.Some types of Kentucky bluegrass are slow, but some types green up quicker. Baseball fields have to use the early types. Perennial ryegrass will be faster.
