Why Do Municipalities and Parks and Rec Choose Envirofill and Safeshell?

The benefits of a good turf system are clear: they’re easy to maintain and require less water than grass while offering premier experiences in athletics and outdoor enjoyment in recreational and park settings. It comes as no surprise that parks and rec departments, school districts, and city officials are choosing to install synthetic turf fields and parks in public spaces and sports facilities.

At Motz, we’re committed to staying ahead of the game by engineering a new experience in turf that’s focused on safety, sanitation, and sustainability. The company’s stewardship in crumb rubber alternatives for athletic fields and landscape management comes from genuine concern, curiosity, and the motivation to pioneer safer, more sustainable solutions without compromising on quality or performance.

Motz is your trusted partner in public synthetic turf facilities

Designing and installing a turf system is a huge project and sizeable investment. When you partner with Motz for turf infill, you’ll benefit from over a decade of experience in turf system design. We thoroughly understand the requirements and considerations of turf systems for public parks and sports facilities and we’re more than happy to guide you through the process.

We enjoy fostering a culture of innovation and collaboration. The energy is infectious and fuels the passion we feel about the work we do. Our partnerships matter just as much as our products and we have credibility from industry peers, municipalities, and city parks and recreation officials all over the country. We’re honored to become a reliable ally to contractors, sports directors, field designers, landscapers, and partners in adjacent industries.

Here are a few reasons why municipalities, school districts, and parks and rec teams love working with us:

#1 Our reps are local and our turf infill products come with a warranty

With reps all over North America, the Motz team can work with your city officials, parks and recreation department, contractors and team members to consult on your turf system, customize your design plans, and oversee infill installation.

We’ll confidently back Envirofill throughout its entire life cycle. That’s why our infill comes with a 16-year warranty. Parks and Recreation departments, city officials, athletes, and residents of all ages can enjoy durability, high performance, and safety with Motz infill. The grass really is greener on the other side!

#2 Envirofill and Safeshell are low maintenance turf infill options

Public sports and park facilities are set up for success with the lowest maintenance, high-quality synthetic turf infill. Both Envirofill and Safeshell are designed to resist compaction and possess a higher-than-average bulk density so they stay in place. That means Motz turf infill won’t float, migrate, or blow away from your synthetic turf field or park in exposed conditions. Compared to other turf infill products, you’ll have significantly less infill to continually purchase and add to your facilities. Both turf infills are ideal in all climates, from stormy, coastal Florida conditions to frigid New England weather.

#3 It’s clean and safe

Envirofill and Safeshell are 100% non-toxic. Both turf infill products have been put through numerous tests and have passed with flying colors. In addition to being safe, both infills are clean and free of dust. Safeshell is made from 100% ground walnut shells, and Envirofill is made from washed sand grains that are coated in acrylic and infused with Microban, an antimicrobial technology that helps to prevent mold, mildew, and bacteria responsible for unpleasant odors and product deterioration.

Which public parks, municipalities, and schools use Envirofill and Safeshell turf infill?
