FAQ: ARTIFICIAL TURF
What is Artificial Turf?
Artificial turf is a grass-like ground cover that replicates lush natural grass in appearance and function, and provides a low maintenance, weed-free surface that doesn’t need to be watered or fertilized.
What are the advantages of using zSNAP.TURF?
- Softer steps with 35mm yarn length
- Fuller look, thanks to our turf’s greater density with 26 stiches per 10cm
- Realistic colour from its natural green vibrancy
- Lasting durability with 1.1kg/sqm of double layer latex backing
- Ease of mind with 5 years’ warranty against discolouration and UV degradation
Where can I use zSNAP.TURF?
- Planter Boxes
- Indoor Areas (including walls and floors)
- Garden (roof gardens, soil gardens etc)
Is zSNAP∙TURF drainable like real grass?
Yes, it is. It has a drainage base below the levelling layer, which also has perforations for drainage. So you don’t have to worry about any risk of having flooded gardens or balconies.
How do I clean my zSNAP.TURF?
Whether used indoors or outdoors, simply clean just like you would a carpet, i.e. using a vacuum cleaner. A leaf rake or garden broom will help remove debris like fallen leaves, help realign the fibres and will smooth it over. As the artificial turf is permeable, rain water will run through the backing and clean it at the same time.
If you do use a cleaning product, then generally speaking a mild detergent is the best thing to use. You should avoid products that are acidic in nature (i.e. pH less than 3) or have oxidising properties (like beach or peroxide).
How will our pets react to the artificial turf?
Your pets will be fine! They tend to treat artificial grass just like normal grass except they can’t dig it up! Any droppings are easy for you to remove or wash away. If the grass will receive very heavy use from pets, as it would in a kennels, we recommend that you use disinfectant to clean it as this will help remove smells and kill bacteria. However, where you have light use, this is rarely needed.
