Engage in mild, routine brushing to remove pet hair and debris to keep the turf looking lush. Only use cleaners that are safe for pets for spot-cleaning any messes promptly. Conduct periodic inspections to catch potential wear and tear before it becomes a problem.
3. PREVENTING BAD SMELLS AND BACTERIA
Regularly clean the turf with water to reduce odors and preserve freshness. Use pet-safe enzymatic cleaners to tackle pet odors effectively.

4. DEALING WITH PET HAIR

5. PAW-FRIENDLY LANDSCAPING ELEMENTS
Integrate pet-friendly features into your landscape design, such as designated play areas. Purchase plants and accessories that are safe for pets, creating a harmonious environment. Establish a comfortable area for your furry friends to relax and have fun, improving their overall experience.
6. SEASONAL MAINTENANCE TIPS
Adjust your care routine to accommodate different weather conditions throughout the seasons. Prepare for intense rain or wintry conditions by ensuring proper drainage to avoid matting. Protect the turf during extremely high or low temperatures, taking measures to maintain its longevity. Take a look at our cold weather guide for more suggestions. Yearly professional maintenance is also advised.
7. ENSURING SAFETY FOR PETS
Regularly check for pointy objects or debris that can hurt your pets while they play. Verify the absence of toxic substances in fertilizers or pesticides that may be used in the area. High-quality turf makes sure a safe space for your pets to thrive, but it’s still wise to be sure nothing harmful ends up in your yard.
