Pet owners do their best to make their animals feel welcome and comfortable in and outside their homes. Many homeowners have switched to artificial grass for minimal upkeep and cost. So, let’s discuss why our artificial tuff is the perfect solution for pet areas.
Is Artificial Grass Safe for Pets?
Firstly, is artificial grass safe for pets who regularly go outside? Simply put, yes, ours is! More than 95 percent of artificial turf has a urethane backing (bottom of turf). This backing not only drains slower but also absorbs moisture, and it can retain a urine order. To reduce and even eliminate the need to use a deodorizer or rinse the turf, we worked with our manufacturer and came up with a 100 percent permeable bottom (backing).
This is the turf we install, and in our opinion, it is unmatched in the market. To put it simply, there is no better turf for dogs. Because of our permeable bottom (backing), our turf is truly pesticide-free and can stand up to even the most active four-legged family members.
Can Animals Relieve Themselves on Artificial Grass?
It’s common knowledge that animals, primarily dogs, go outside regularly for potty breaks. But is artificial grass okay for potty relief for dogs? Yes—our artificial grass doesn’t break down or absorb, allowing liquids to seep through and drain away, unlike our competitors. Of course, you still have to pick up after them just as you would anywhere else!
Artificial Grass Benefits for Pets
Now that you know more about artificial grass, let’s see why it’s perfect for pet areas. From playtime to cost-effectiveness, you’ll feel happy that you decided on artificial grass for your property.
No Mud Tracking & Easy Cleaning
A benefit of artificial grass is that it doesn’t cause mud/dirt to track into the house. Even if it’s raining heavily, artificial grass doesn’t retain moisture for dirt to accumulate. Additionally, artificial turf is easy to clean by simply removing the solids by hand. You can rinse the turf as well, but with our completely permeable bottom side, most of our customers do not feel this is necessary.
Great for Playtime
Many homeowners worry that artificial grass will feel uncomfortable for dogs to play on. However, the surface is smooth and level enough for playtime and physical activity. Your dog will want to spend their day playing, lounging, and enjoying the outdoors on your new artificial lawn.
Cost-Effective & Long Lasting
Artificial grass is a more cost-effective alternative to grass, especially if you choose to install recycled grass. You won’t have to worry about upkeep, such as weeding, mowing, fertilizing, or watering. Artificial turf doesn’t dry out or wither from environmental conditions and looks pristine for years.
