Pets & Artificial Grass
Many people considering the idea of artificial grass have pets and ask us how they will react to this new turf surface. Most of these people are dog owners (cats tend to not need the exercise, play and fun that a garden offers and will always look for planting beds if they want to dig anyway).
The answer is they’ll be fine – dogs treat artificial grass no differently to natural grass or turf.
In fact your dog and you and the garden will all benefit. Here’s how and why ..
Dogs find artificial grass soft and enjoyable to run and play on and will readily ‘do their business’ on it. Moreover, it’s there all year round.
Gone are the sun-dried, hard earth days, the too-muddy to play days and the days they can’t play on the lawn because you’ve just put fertiliser or weedkiller down or are planning a long stint of mowing.
You can enjoy your lawn free from dog wear and tear and staining. The artificial grass is permeable so any urine drains through the turf surface and any faeces can be removed easily; what’s more, the artificial grass fibres will take no harm from this. You’ll also have no more muddy patches to look at and no more muddy paws to clean before the dog’s allowed back in the house! Every day of the year it can be the same.
The garden will not suffer from being dug up or the effects of dog urine/faeces and will be the same, luscious green all year round offering a safe, clean enviroment for you and your dog and your family to enjoy.
Owners of boarding kennels can also enjoy great benefits from installing an artificial grass dog run.
