Many people considering the idea of artificial grass have pets and readily ask us how they will react to this new turf surface. The majority of these people are dog owners. The answer is they’ll be fine – dogs treat artificial grass no differently than natural grass or turf.
In fact your dog and you and the garden will all be better off. 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 available to them all year round – gone are the sun-dried, hard earth days, the too-muddy to play days and the days when they can’t play on the lawn because you’ve just put fertilizer, or weed killer down, or are planning to do a long stint of mowing. Also gone are the days of their being reprimanded for digging up the lawn – they can’t dig through an artificial grass lawn!
You can enjoy your lawn free from dog wear and tear, staining and smells. The artificial grass is permeable so any urine drains through the turf surface and any feces can be removed easily; what’s more, the artificial grass fibers 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.
