As more and more people learn about the benefits of artificial turf you may have noticed that you’re seeing it in more and more places. From islands in the mall parking lot to medians down Main Street; from the local high school football field to the playground in the park; and from the doggy daycare right to your own backyard…..artificial turf is proving to be a popular option to replace high maintenance natural grass.
Envirofill infill for artificial turf offers unique value across all of these applications. Today we are going to look at a few of these installation types and see what Envirofill does to improve your artificial turf experience.
Residential Backyard – The reasons behind many people choosing to replace their natural grass backyards with artificial grass usually has to do with conserving resources, time and water being the two at the top of the list. A natural grass backyard takes a significant amount of time to maintain….fertilizing, mowing, dealing with the clippings, etc. Add on top of that the water it takes to keep it green. Nationwide estimates show that approximately 1/3 of residential water use is dedicated to watering the yard and landscaping.
Installing artificial grass in your backyard will give you more time to spend with your kids and dogs on a beautiful lawn that never needs to be mowed! And when using Envirofill at a minimum of 2 lbs/sqft you’ll get even more benefits. The acrylic coating of Envirofill is permanently infused with Microban, an antimicrobial technology that will help fight bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungus in the infill layer. Envirofill was specifically designed for use in artificial turf. Its smooth, rounded texture promotes better drainage through the turf system and also won’t prematurely abrade the turf fibers. These benefits give you the added peace of mind that your investment in an artificial grass lawn will be well protected with Envirofill as your infill!
Pet Installations/Doggy Daycares – When looking for alternative surfacing that will be used by dogs in a residential or commercial setting, you want something that is easy to clean and helps to reduce pet waste odors. Artificial grass installed with Envirofill fits the bill! In addition to being completely safe and non-toxic for kids and pets (a claim that is backed by 3rd party testing) Envirofill also helps reduce pet urine ammonia odor. The Microban antimicrobial technology helps fight naturally occurring bacteria that play a role in creating that bad smell. For a more detailed explanation, please see our video here:
Putting Greens – Do you enjoy spending some time on the links? Maybe you’re a scratch golfer? Or just looking for a fun activity the whole family can enjoy……an artificial grass putting green is a great use of that extra space in your yard. Artificial turf putting greens can be constructed from small to large and from easy & fun to exciting & challenging. When designing your artificial grass putting green Envirofill as your infill will give you many benefits. Because of its smooth, rounded nature it will not compact over time. This will allow your shots to “stick” better and provide a more realistic experience. Due to that non-compaction, your green speeds will also stay more consistent. Envirofill putting green infill is typically a blend of green and black, giving your artificial turf putting green a beautiful and professional finished look.
