Generally speaking, you can combine the two different infills: Tcool and Zeofill at about even amount, some people do so once a while on their artificial grass installations. However, you need to be aware that when you combine the infills, we won’t be able to reach the max results of getting turf cooled or pet odor reductions, both Tcool and Zeofill will function but not near to their capacities, unfortunately I don’t have any effectiveness percentage numbers. In your case, I will always recommend to use Tcool as the infill and deal with the pet smells differently if it even become a problem for you. By using Tcool as your main infill, you can be sure that your turf won’t get hot during warm days, and you can always use our pet odor neutralizer to spray down the pet smells when needed: https://megagrass.com/products/pet-odor-neutralizer.

If your artificial turf installation is to replace real grass lawn, you won’t be able to use the glues on a sub base besides the seam. For installations over hard surfaces, the glue will be the only option in most cases, therefore, it is hard to compare the glue with nail from the cost standpoint when it comes to artificial grass installations as these two items are not substitutable of each other.

It depends on how long the seams of your turf installation will be. To average usage, a 29 oz turf glue tube will cover a seam length of 9’-12’, and one gallon of turf glue will cover a seam length of 40’-50’. So once you know about how long your seam(s) you will be able to determine how much glue you will need.

For all the artificial grass installations that to replace the real grass lawns, a sub base is always recommended for proper drainage and solid results. A typical sub base is about 4” thick with a bottom layer of crushed road base and top layer of decomposed granite: such sub base is not only provide excellent water drainage capacity, but also a solid and smooth surface to lay the turf on to ensure a perfect end result. Some installations that have to be done over a solid surface such as concrete or decks, a sub base might not be needed or even feasible, we will recommend you to reach us by phone: 877 796 8873 or email us at [email protected], thank you.

The short answer is absolutely NO. For the artificial grass installation, gopher wires to be an optional only needed if your area has issues with gophers. When being installed, the gopher wire will go in right after the excavation and before the sub base. Therefore, the gopher wire will be buried under the crushed road base and decomposed granite on top of which will be the artificial grass.

Yes, it is quite common that people to mix different type of infills when it comes to artificial grass installations. However, the end results of each different type of infills won’t be at their best, in your case, the turf will be cooling down but won’t be as much once Tcool is mixed with Zeolite, at the same time, zeolite will neutralize the dog smell but won’t be as efficient. So we typically won’t recommend the mixing of infills, rather to suggest to use the infills to address the most critical concerns.

If there is no seams involved and installation to be done on a normal ground to replace the existing lawn, and the installation crew is professional and experienced, it is possible to get the job done within two days even though it can be a bit tight. Planing is critical for all artificial grass installations, to have right equipment and tools and making sure materials (both base and turf/accessories) available at the time of installation is very important.
