Does Artificial Grass Get Hot In The Sun?
If sitting in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time, artificial grass will get hot. It doesn’t become as hot as asphalt or concrete, but after sitting in the sun for several hours it will heat up. To combat this you can spray your artificial grass lawn with a hose to cool it down. A more preventative option is to use T°Cool® Infill which cools artificial grass through the process of evaporative cooling.
What Is Infill & Why Do I Need It?
Infill is essentially sand. It does come in several different forms and from different brands, each touting their own special features. These infills are essentially sand, with a special coating. Infill is applied to artificial grass at the end of the installation, often with a seed spreader.
For an artificial grass installation Infill serves a few purposes such as:
- Acts as a ballast and weighs down the turf
- Keeps individual turf fibers upright and prevents matting
- Some infill options like T°Cool® Infill help cool the turf through the process of evaporative cooling
- The T°Cool® Infill mentioned above and Envirofill both offer antimicrobial protection that helps prevent the buildup of odors and bacteria from dog urine
