A Hot Mess: Zeofill And Artificial Turf

Posted by Troy Scott on 21 May


A Hot Mess: Zeofill And Artificial Turf http://www.heavenlygreens.com/artificial-grass-blog/bid/199909/A-Hot-Mess-Zeofill-and-Artificial-Turf @heavenlygreensYou love the fact that today’s artificial turf is so dog-friendly. Finally, you can have the lush green lawn of your dreams without banishing Man’s Best Friend. But beware: choosing the right artificial grass for your yard is just the beginning. Aesthetics may be your #1 concern, but the infill you can’t see can make all the difference in how your grass performs. Especially if you have a dog or two.  

Why? Consider the following scenario . . . 

You’ve worked hard all day. You’re ready to get on home and spend some quality time relaxing in your backyard – sharing a few cocktails, firing up the grill, watching the sun set, and just generally making good use of the outdoor areas you’ve designed so carefully. But what’s that awful smell? 

Take a guess. If your dogs have had the run of the yard – and the day has been warm and sunny – the ammonia in their pet waste has probably turned from liquid to gas. And those gas molecules are wafting their way toward you. Peeee-yeeew. That stinks, in more ways than one. 

Artificial grass with ZeoFill eliminates that smelly mess

ZeoFill is a type of infill specifically formulated to prevent liquids such as pet waste from gasifying and effectively gassing you out of your own yard. It is composed of 97.6% pure Clinoptilolite, a natural silicate zeolite that is formed when molten volcanic lava encounters seawater. 

These natural, organic crystals have a honeycomb-like structure that make them microscopically porous. The crystals also carry a negative charge. So when they come in contact with positively-charged liquid ions (such as those in ammonia), the positive ions become trapped within the crystal’s structure. 

You might not care about the science behind ZeoFill, but you will definitely appreciate the results. 

Artificial grass with ZeoFill turns down the heat

Thanks to its permeability, ZeoFill is able to cool fake grass in much the same way that Mother Nature cools natural grass. It’s a process called evapotranspiration, in which cooling moisture is released into the air. Or, in this case, the turf. ZeoFill infill can cool artificial grass as much as 20 degrees. Kinda makes you want to get out there and wiggle your toes in the grass right now, doesn’t it? 

For your lawn, it’s important that you get ZeoFill® branded infill product, because it is 100% natural and environmentally friendly. Like all the other components of superior quality artificial turf, it is safe for dogs and the rest of your family, too. Since it’s not toxic, it won’t harm them even if they manage to inhale or swallow it. In fact, Clinoptilolite zeolite is used for detoxifying and removing hazardous materials from the body. With other types of zeolite products, you cannot be assured of purity. 

Let’s be honest. You love your dog, and you want him to have fun playing on the grass – but not at the expense of the humans in your family. Or your neighbors. When you install artificial grass with ZeoFill, everyone gets what they want. Now when you come home, you can actually enjoy your backyard, taking in the fragrant aromas of your garden and that upcoming meal cooking on the grill. Ahhhh, summer, just the way it should be.
