EasyTurf nurtures recycled infill

EasyTurf, the landscape arm of sports-turf giant FieldTurf, introduced an environmentally responsible, 100% recycled infill option in what the company calls an “evolution of the artificial grass system.”

Using advanced techniques and equipment from FieldTurf’s manufacturing plant in Calhoun, Ga., used turf is being transformed into an infill option. The cutting-edge process applies to any synthetic grass product and bolsters EasyTurf’s status as the industry leader in eco-friendly landscape products. 

“As the first company to successfully remove and recycle an entirely synthetic football field, we clearly demonstrate our commitment to environmental stewardship,” said EasyTurf president David Hartman. “We are proud to provide both the most superior draining and realistic synthetic grass, and increase our ability to preserve natural resources in numerous ways.” 

The company promotes artificial turf for commercial, residential, municipal and military landscape. A fire retardant series is also now available. Without the use of heavy metals, FieldTurf has applied a proprietary formula to create a flame-retardant system that exceeds any flame test or building code. The FlameGuard Infill consists of patent-pending pellets that quickly extinguish flame spread and can be produced using 100% recycled turf, available now in limited quantities.

FieldTurf is part of Tarkett Sports, a division of the Tarkett Group.
