Grass Solutions for Pets

Getting a dog doesn’t mean you need to give up your ambition of having an elegant, green lawn. You simply have to have the right type of grass. Artificial turf will resolve the general issues of most K9 behaviors namely:

Brown Stains

Pet urine has a substantial nitrogen level and pH level, which tends to char grass and cause unsightly brown marks. By means of artificial grass, no longer will you have a spotted yard. Synthetic grass fibers won’t become spotted when they establish contact with pet waste either.


Unlike authentic grass with single fibers emerging from the soil, synthetic turf has a backing that maintains all the fibers together. This hinders your precious pets from digging in the lawn and destroying your landscaping.


The inherently antimicrobial and hypoallergenic covering of artificial turf indicates that fleas, ants, and ticks aren’t hoping to in residing in your yard — no pests in the yard or for your canine to carry inside.


The fully permeable, non-absorbent backing of synthetic grass permits it to strain more and cleaner than real grass. With that being said, it’s simpler to get rid of messes and pet waste by simply rinsing the area with a water hose. Considering that synthetic turf is inorganic, it does not in any way demand water to sustain a green, elegant aesthetic all year long. It also never requires any cutting.


Getting rid of frequent mowing and watering also means your dog will never introduce grime or lawn cuttings from your lawn. Thus, an effortlessly clean lawn also promotes a pristine house.

Why Artificial As Opposed to Organic Turf?

Most synthetic grass is permeable and placed over a compact sub-base. When your pet goes to the bathroom on the surface, it first touches the uppermost layer (fiber and infill). Coated infill and water-resistant fibers block the soaking up of fluid. This allows microbes and litter to naturally seep through the turf.

Although permeability of the grass is key, the grass permeability rate is not necessarily the bottleneck. The subbase is often compressed at 90-95 percent and is the limiting aspect of ground penetration. Hence, it is the greatest vital consideration. If the base is correctly installed, it will facilitate natural permeability.
