Adding Zeofil to lawn

How to apply Zeofill to your artificial grass lawn to keep it smelling great

I will show you how to add our new product Zeofill to your artificial grass lawn to keep it smelling great.

I have discussed the latest methods that I have tested for removing the smell of dog wee from an artificial grass lawn.

After a lot of research about the mineral Zeolite I have decided to start offering it in a top dressing called Zeofill as part of our installation service for dog owners.

The photos below show how I added this new product to an old lawn, which is slightly more difficult than adding it to a new lawn due to the fibres being matted. However the process is still quite simple, we use a plastic lawn rake and a Powerbrush to tease up the fibres enabling us to hand brush the Zeofill into the pile.

On new installations we can evenly distribute the Zeofill across a lawn with a spreader before brushing it into the unmatted pile. We are anticipating that the Zeofill will last longer than our current Dog Wee Sand before it needs reapplying. This could be anywhere up to a year depending on how much rain and watering the lawn gets.

  1. Hi Gavin.

    Superb website, the guidance is by far the most useful I have found.

    Is the zeolite a direct replacement for infill sand or do you use a mix to top dress?



    • Hi Ben , many thanks. We rarely use kiln sand as an infill any more , only when there is slight puffing in our grass to pin it to the base (which is very rare now all our products are EU produced) or when we fitting certain products that require infilling like our golf grass. The Zeofil is simply there to absorb the ammonia before the rains wash it through , so put it in clean on its own. regards

      • Thanks for the advice Gavin.

        Are you top dressing with Zeolite across the whole lawn? I’ve read c.5kg per square metre – does that ring true?

        Best wishes


        • Hi. I can not claim to be an expert on this product as its only recently Ive been using it , previously, we have been using our sand that works on the same principle and we always added this in stages. I know 5 kg per sqm is suggested, however actually getting that amount into the pile (especially if it is an older lawn) is very difficult and you find a high proportion is wasted. Im a believer of building the layers up as you go and when required. regards
