Low VOC Paint: How ZEN is good for you

At Avalon, we take our homeowners health and the quality of air in the home very seriously. We look after you by using only Low VOC paint. What is that anyways? Good question. The long and the short is there are less chemicals in the paint off-gassing into your home, so with Avalon you can breathe easy.

For the more scientific types out there, VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compounds. The simple scientific definition is VOC’s are organic compounds containing one or more carbon atoms that have high vapour pressure and evaporate quickly into the atmosphere. Yup, confusing, we know, but all you really need to know is Avalon has its eyes on the most advanced environmentally sustainable products and brings them to you in every home. Our healthier homes are good for you and good for the environment.

Landscaping: How ZEN is green on the outside too

It’s more than meets the eye with ZEN’s green spaces and yards, so go ahead ZEN homeowners, enjoy them to the fullest, knowing you are part of something good for the earth. Every bit of landscaping we do on each ZEN development helps keep water on site for the drought resistant grasses, plants, trees and shrubs. Our plan reduces how much water goes down the drain, and good water management is a hallmark of environmental responsibility.

Choosing drought resistant plants, shrubs and trees for any yard means they need less water. So over those hot summer months you can spend less time with a hose in your hand.
