Green Planet Grass Blog – Petfill™ & Lawn Reborn™
If you have synthetic grass and a dog, odour caused by dog urine can have a serious impact on enjoyment of your back yard.
These odours are caused by 2 factors; ammonia in the urine & the subsequent bacterial growth which may occur:
- PetFill™ absorbs the ammonia (the primary cause of odour), substantially neutralizing and reducing smells;
- Lawn Reborn™ is an enzyme product that destroys the bacteria that is the secondary cause of odours.
PetFill™ is an organic mineral blend that naturally reduces pet odours, making it ideal for use as an infill product for artificial grass. It’s safe for pets & humans and replaces silica sand infill. PetFill™ is applied at the time of installation of your synthetic lawn.
PetFill™ is applied at a rate of 10kg/sqm in a standard 35mm landscaping lawn.
An added benefit of the PetFill™ is that it can reduce the temperature of your lawn by absorbing moisture and then releasing it slowly, providing an “air-conditioning” effect by evaporation.
Many people find that the PetFill™ alone will adequately deal with odours caused by dog urine. But, in cases where there is secondary odour caused by bacterial growth, Lawn Reborn™ is a quick solution to help neutralize these odours.
Lawn Reborn™ is an enzyme product which works as a powerful artificial turf cleaner and deodorizer. It’s non-toxic, environmentally safe, certified septic & Bio-cycle safe, salmonella free & biodegradable.
Frequency of spraying Lawn Reborn™ varies depending on the size of the dog, the size of the garden and the diet & metabolism of the dog. A higher protein diet can encourage increased bacterial growth & subsequently more odour. We recommend applying Lawn Reborn™ in the evening to get the maximum benefit from the product. Applying in the cool of the evening will avoid excessive heat & evaporation, allowing the enzymes to do their work.
