One of the questions we get asked most about artificial lawns is how pets get on with it. We answer the question ‘verbally’ around two or three times per week but it has been a while since we put the basics in writing. So here goes:
Exercise is easy: I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but real grass grows.
Depending on the weather and the time of year, it might grow at different speeds but it definitely grows. That means that unless dog owners are prepared to exercise their own legs with a lawnmower, their dogs might need to work a little harder to get around the emerging jungle. This is particularly pertinent for smaller dogs as their legs can quickly feel shorter than the long grass.
Poops and scoops: Whether you are in the habit of scooping or using a powerful jet of water to remove your pet’s poops, the thing about artificial grass is it cleans really easily. All our products are durable, washable, won’t stain, won’t smell, and are resistant to rough play and over-excitement of any sort from your animals. Good to know!
Authentic, comfy and attractive: In all the years that I’ve been working with artificial lawns I’ve never known a dog not to like the surface. It might bring out a few extra sniffs and early paw prods, but they quickly find their bounce and joy at the natural feel and life-like texture of their new playground. The only thing they will miss out on is being able to dig it up and then revel in the thrill of running mud all around your house afterwards…
