With many homeowners lovingly caring for their lawns and landscape, it’s no surprise then that they want the best possible solutions to increase their curb appeal and impress others. Unfortunately, for those with pets, this can be quite burdensome. Especially when you consider how dogs love to tear up grass and destroy plants. However, homeowners can avoid many of these issues with artificial turf. For those interested in making the switch, keep in mind these top considerations before installing artificial turf for your pets.
When choosing artificial grass for your pets, you’ve got to consider turf quality. Each type of turf material has its own weight and feel. Some grasses made from polypropylene have more of a plastic feel, and heat exposure can melt and damage the blades. Still, grasses made from nylon or polyethylene are stronger and more heat-resistant. These blades feel and look more natural than polypropylene and make for a better pet-friendly play area.
Another consideration to make is installation quality. Naturally, with our installation services, you will see top-quality artificial grass installation, so you don’t have to worry about mismanaged materials. However, this quality is even more crucial if you have pets. Our expert installation ensures safe, durable lawns that your pets can play on without injury. Improper installation can risk safety hazards and potentially harm your pets or children.
It’s common knowledge that artificial grass requires less maintenance than natural grass, but this is especially handy for pet-owners to know. For instance, your pet will obviously need to urinate or defecate at some point, which can smell and be hard to clean. Since artificial grass is much easier to maintain, there is almost no maintenance necessary. The blades are non-absorbent, anti-microbial, and stain- and odor-resistant, meaning all you need is soap and water to clean up.
Always consider the turf’s durability. Everyone knows that dogs love to roll around, dig, and tear up dirt, so it’s only reasonable to assume they’ll try to do it to your artificial grasses. It’s important to know that our artificial grasses are extremely durable and can withstand any wear and tear your dog may cause.
With that, it’s no surprise that we at Synthetic Turf Northwest provide premium pet-friendly artificial turf. Our durable and safe artificial grasses allow your dog to run around and play to their heart’s content. Even better, you don’t need to use any fertilizers or pesticides to keep pests or weeds away.
