The Different Types of Synthetic Grass Infill

If you’re planning a new synthetic grass installation for your home or business, there’s a good chance you’ve already considered various artificial turf samples, talked to a few different wholesalers and installers, and even gotten an estimate or two. But there’s another major factor that you need to consider before you proceed with installing your new artificial turf landscaping: the infill. Infill is a granular substance poured between the turf blades after installation in order to weigh down the turf and prevent movement. Infill helps keep your turf upright, adds extra cushion, and prevents wrinkling. Certain infill products also provide unique benefits such as odor elimination. If you want to learn which infill products are best for your home’s install needs, keep reading.

 

Silica Sand

One of the most popular infill materials available is silica sand. Silica sand infill is created from quartz stones after they’ve been heavily eroded by wind and water into small granules. Silica sand not only helps your turf blades stay upright, but it also resists compaction, leading to improved drainage and preventing puddles from forming on the surface of the lawn. SGW silica sand is specially designed and blended to promote superior athletic achievement. The round particle shape reduces abrasions and injuries, and they support significant on-field heat reduction. Whether your project is a residential landscape or an athletic field, SGW silica sand is a superior choice.

 

ZeoFill

If you have pets in your home that you need to accommodate, ZeoFill is the premier dog-friendly infill solution. ZeoFill’s non-toxic, biodegradable granules trap and neutralize ammonia-based odors, such as those caused by dog urine. It can be added at the time of installation for from-the-start freshness, or added after the fact as-needed. 100% natural, 97% pure, and environmentally safe, ZeoFill is a great addition for any homes with kids and pets that need a freshness pick-me-up.

 

Envirofill

Envirofill is another infill product great for properties with kids and pets around. Made up of green silicone dioxide granules, Envirofill is most popular for synthetic turf lawns where the transmission of bacteria is a concern, such as playgrounds and sports fields. Using Microban’s antimicrobial technology, Envirofill creates a sterile environment that prevents bacteria, mold, and mildew from growing or reproducing in synthetic grass. The end result is a turf solution that is inhospitable for microbes, but still clean and welcoming for pets and people.
