An Ideal Dog Run

When Linne and George Fitzgerald wanted to get a dog, they knew they needed a special place for him adjacent to the house.

The side yard was a mess, but was an ideal place to turn into a dog run. Their first call was to a synthetic grass provider.

“The space had been a muddy catch-all of junk,” Linne Fitzgerald said. “With the help of Tim from Synthetic Grass Pros we were able to reclaim 300 square feet of my home.”

Now Parker, their Chocolate Lab, has a clean space to call his own.

Types of Artificial Turf

Synthetic turf and grass products come in almost as many varieties as natural grass. For purposes of this post, we are going to put them in three categories:

• Landscape turf
• Putting greens
• Sport turf

Each of these types have specialized “varieties”. Landscape turf is most like “real lawns” and are typically broken out into these types. There are multiple types, including courtyards, lawns, pet areas and playgrounds.
• Spring
• Fescue
• Lawn
• Envirograss

Putting greens are also split into different categories, based on pile and blade length as well as color. There are over 50 styles of golf greens with the various types to match your golf skill level. The two most popular types are.:
• Perfect Putt
• Pro Putt

Sport turf products are usually categorized as either:
• Sport turf (used in football, baseball and soccer applications)
• Fastgrass (for indoor facilities)
• Colored turf (for logos on the field or in an end zone)

Depending on the location and need, these are starting places for choosing the right product for the right application.
