  1. What is Greenmaker?

    A natural zeolite of the Clinoptilolite type. Using this zeolite ensures a sturdy, solid background. A perfect basis for top sports.

  2. Is it true that Greenmaker is more expensive than other suppliers?

    No. Because of the high demands set on its product by Greenmaker, the investment basically pays for itself. For example, because less water is required after the Greenmaker application to keep your pitch in top condition. If needed, we can provide you with a calculation showing how a Greenmaker application will pay for itself.

  3. Why can’t Greenmaker work with the less costly zeolite from Europe?

    Zeolite from Europe does not comply with the criteria as set by Greenmaker, such as the pH-value, the water absorbing properties and the granular composition. These elements are deciding factors for the effect and yield. In general, European zeolite does not comply as a soil addition for the top layers of sports pitches and golf courses.

  4. Is maintenance costly when using Greenmaker?

    No, because with the application of Greenmaker you need to air, irrigate and fertilize a whole lot less. Therefore, you can rely on a higher structurally sustainable quality at lower periodical expenses.

  5. Can Greenmaker be used in all seasons?

    Yes. The only thing of importance is that Greenmaker must be added to the lawn under dry conditions.

  6. How quickly will you see an effect after the application or use of Greenmaker?

    Immediately. The application period normally determines whether you can see this with the naked eye, because a lot of the effects happen underground.

  7. Can I not only treat the bad parts of my pitch with Greenmaker?

    This is also possible, although its use on the entire pitch gives a better result. Our consultants can recommend the most effective application.

  8. Will the Greenmaker consultants be able to take care of it all, from ordering, application and advice?

    Yes. Good advice is normally very important during the application and the period thereafter. You can rely on Greenmaker for this purpose.

  9. How quickly can a Greenmaker order be delivered?

    Greenmaker can deliver within 48 hour in the Netherlands and Belgium.

  10. How much water is absorbed when Greenmaker is used?

    Greenmaker absorbs 660 litres water per m3 product.

  11. Doesn’t the use of Greenmaker make the soil too wet?

    No. By using Greenmaker in the top layers, you have a greater storage capacity for water. If the soil containing Greenmaker is completely saturated, it allows the water to drain by means of vertical drainage.

  12. Does Greenmaker expand?

    No. Greenmaker retains its original form because of the so-called ‘honeycomb structure’.

  13. Does the structure of my top layer change?

    Yes. This is actually always necessary. Climate changes, such as long droughts or sudden downpours of rain, forces us to do this. The more solid structure ensures that the soil structure remains perfect under both these weather conditions.

  14. Does the product break down in the soil?

    No, the product does not break down. It also does not crumble like lava, and it is also not subjected to pH-influences as is the case with Diatomous earth. Greenmaker is purely natural, and also does not leave any contaminating residue like many chemical products.

  15. Does my fertilizer still work the same?

    Yes. Even better, your fertilizer will have an improved effect, because the nutrients are absorbed by Greenmaker and released to the plant when required. Thus you have less seepage and you contribute to a better environment.

  16. Is Greenmaker’s pH-value, granular composition and specific gravity important?

    Yes, these elements are extremely important, therefore Greenmaker carried out a lot of research on these three points to find the perfect balance in the development of this product.

  17. Will the product continue to work in the soil?

    Yes, Greenmaker is a rock with a strong negative tension and this is retained. TNO established that the zeolite used by Greenmaker is millions of years old. Naturally, maintenance of the soil after application is important, and the Greenmaker consultants can draw up a plan of action for this purpose.

  18. Can I use it on an existing green or tee?

    Yes, accompanied by good advice from a Greenmaker consultant.

  19. Where else is Greenmaker used?

    In the nuclear industry, agriculture and fertilizer industry.

  20. How is Greenmaker packaged?

    Greenmaker is supplied in sturdy bags of 25 kg, per pallet (900 kg), or in discussion in so-called Big Bags.

  21. How is the soil described with the addition of Greenmaker, in volume or kg?

    The soil is subject to fluctuation in regards to the absorption of moisture. So when you describe the soil or top layer in kilograms, this can change from day to day. That’s why we use volume, because this will always be the same. This is important because only when using volumes will you get a reliable idea of how much Greenmaker must be added to the soil.

  22. Why is specific gravity so important?

    Even if there is a big difference in the specific gravity of a product to be added to the soil, separation wil take place. Suppliers who deal with kilograms in their calculations and not volume, are therefore taking a risk.

    With these suppliers their products often also disintegrate under influence of the soil’s pH-value. With Greenmaker, the opposite is true, as the product retains its structure. With many other suppliers, the water absorption therefore deteriorates year after year; therefore this is not a sustainable solution.
