Whether you own a doggy daycare or are simply an animal lover, you naturally want the best for the animals under your care. Ensuring your pets’ happiness and well-being is crucial, but this can often come with a sacrifice to your outdoor landscaping.
Luckily, artificial grass is the perfect landscaping solution for maintaining a safe and clean environment that remains fun for your four-legged friends. Pet-friendly homes and businesses throughout the Dallas area are switching to synthetic turf so they can improve the visual appeal of their property while giving their pups somewhere they’ll love to run and play. Here are just a few of the reasons why pet turf is the ideal choice for people and pups alike.
It Can Withstand Rough Play
Dogs are known for their boundless energy and love for play. This often translates into running, digging, and general roughhousing that can take a toll on your natural grass yard. Regular grass can quickly become damaged and unsightly, making it unsafe for your pup to play on and costly for you to maintain.
Pet turf, on the other hand, is designed to withstand all types of play. Made from durable polyethylene fibers that are triple-reinforced into a tough polyurethane backing, pet turf is specially engineered to withstand even the most rambunctious pups at play. Pet turf can easily handle heavy foot traffic, rough play, and even chewing or scratches. This means that your pup can run, jump, and roll around to their heart’s content while you can have peace of mind that they won’t cause damage to your lawn.
It’s Resistant to Doggy Digging
Every pet owner knows that dogs love to dig. The problem is that digging damages your lawn and lets dogs track dirt and mud into places they shouldn’t. Synthetic grass, however, is woven with durable polyethylene fibers and a resilient polyurethane backing that can resist any attempts to dig through it.
While natural grass is highly susceptible to doggy digging, artificial grass is manufactured with triple tuft bind technology that allows it to withstand thousands of pounds of pull force without losing any turf blades. This means that no matter how much your dog tries to dig, your synthetic turf blades will remain in place — no dangerous holes or ugly divots in sight. Additionally. since there’s no soil visible in a synthetic grass installation, your dog likely won’t even be tempted to dig in the first place.
It’s Perfect for Potty Time
One of the biggest drawbacks of natural grass is that it is easily damaged by dogs using it as a bathroom. Dog urine is very high in nitrogen, which can end up permanently damaging natural grass by burning out the roots and polluting the soil. This creates dead, burnt spots where the grass will always be brown and unsightly. Not to mention, dried pet waste can create foul odors in your lawn over time, making it less enjoyable and even unsanitary for you and your furry friends to use.
Artificial turf, on the other hand, is made with colorfast polyethylene fibers that remain green no matter how often your pups use the bathroom. Moreover, since synthetic turf is nonporous, pet urine doesn’t absorb into the blades and instead passes through to the efficient drainage system, reducing the risk of pet waste odors and keeping your lawn fresh and clean for your family. You can even enhance your pet turf installation with products such as antimicrobial infill and turf deodorizer to further eliminate odors and keep your synthetic grass lawn safe and sanitary year-round.
It Never Requires Toxic Chemicals
If you’re a dog owner, then the health and safety of your pet is probably your No. 1 priority. Although a common practice, maintaining natural grass often involves the use of various toxic chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers, which can potentially harm your pet’s health.
Since synthetic grass doesn’t require any chemicals to keep it clean and evergreen, you can enjoy a beautiful lawn year-round without worrying about your pup’s health. This not only benefits your pet but also contributes to a healthier environment for everyone. If you do want to invest in synthetic grass maintenance products such as turf deodorizer, most of these will be non-toxic and safe for pets. Just ask your installer for their recommendations!
