Also, waterless grass can result in significant savings on your household water bill. Fake lawns with waterless grass are a smart choice for the environment. Also, fake grass doesn't need any fertilizers or pesticides that can seep harmful chemicals into the ground. Protect the environment by choosing a synthetic lawn made from synthetic turf.


Zeager continues its good environmental practices by supplying a 100% recycled foam drainage product to the greenroof industry . Zeager's involvement started when they were approached by a leading greenroof designer - Roofscapes Inc. about their drainage product called Duradrain® which they had used as a drainage base for their various playground surfacing systems. Roofscapes incorporated this drainage product into their Roofrug® system as a drainage media and to promote root growth. Since then, there has been much excitement about this affordable system since it is excellent for retrofit situations requiring little or no structural enhancements.
