Benefits of Artificial Grass for Dogs

Benefits of Artificial Grass for Dogs

Dogs are man’s best friends. They love unconditionally and are all-around bundles of furry joy. Still, not everyone has a yard perfect for a dog. That’s where artificial grass comes in handy. Read these benefits of artificial grass for dog owners to learn more about this pet-friendly lawn material for your home.

It’s Low-Maintenance

One of the highlights of artificial grass is that it’s low-maintenance, especially when you’re dealing with a furry friend. Cleaning waste and messes from artificial grass is significantly easier than with real grass. After your dog releases their waste on your lawn, you can simply pick it up, toss it, and wash the area with a hose and soap. Your artificial grass is good as new. Not to mention, you no longer need chemical treatments to protect your lawn’s aesthetic.

No Worry for Lawn Pests

No dog owner wants to imagine their furry companion infested with fleas, ticks, or other critters. Natural grass is home to many lawn pests such as these. Insect bites and pest infestations are common issues among pet owners, especially when their animals roll around and play in the grass. That’s why synthetic turf is the best alternative. You’ll no longer fear that your dog will become infested with lawn pests, since these pests cannot thrive in artificial turf.

No Difference in Natural Textures and Colors

The final benefit of artificial grass for dog owners is that your dog won’t notice a difference. The texture, shape, and color of artificial blades resembles those of natural grass in its best condition. Your dog will roam around as if it’s the natural thing. Even as they do this, your artificial turf will remain strong and resilient. natural weather conditions don’t affect an artificial lawn like it does natural grass. Synthetic turf never turns muddy, thereby preventing your pet and home from getting dirty.

Given these advantages, consider professional artificial turf installation for your home.

The Advantages of Synthetic Grass for Playgrounds

The Advantages of Synthetic Grass for Playgrounds

You can find playgrounds all over—at schools, public parks, day care centers, and neighborhoods. These play areas are designed as safe areas for children to run, jump, scream, and have fun using a variety of equipment, such as seesaws, swing sets, slides, jungle gyms, chin-up bars, sandboxes, playhouses, and mazes. Play parks tend to use soft undercoats made from wood chips, rubber, or sand as a protective and insulated construction material. However, artificial grass is another material developers should consider. Here are some of the advantages of synthetic grass for playgrounds, which attract visitors while promoting a safe, fun environment.

It’s Durable

Playgrounds are hot spots for various activities. Whether it’s a fun get-together between friends, a mom’s group meet-up, or a birthday party, these areas constantly see high foot traffic. Therefore, they need a long-lasting, tough material to withstand this attention. Synthetic grass is that material. Unlike woodchips, sand, or rubber, artificial grass is soft, protecting children from scrapes and other injuries. There’s little risk for harm when children run and play. It also resists weather elements.

Easy to Clean

Another advantage of synthetic grass for playgrounds is that it’s easy to clean. As other playground materials collect dirt and debris, they become cesspools for bacteria. In turn, children could get sick or risk infections if injured. Synthetic turf, contrarily, is easy to maintain with just natural soap and warm water. No chemical treatments are needed. Rain doesn’t create mud puddles, nor does animal waste become an issue, as solids are easy to identify. Even liquid waste filters through the mesh wiring underneath into the ground. You can simply spray the artificial grass with the natural water-soap combo, and it’s clean.

Cost-Efficient

Finally, synthetic turf is a cost-efficient option with few additional maintenance costs. Playground developers simply need to pay an overhead installation cost. Afterwards, there’s little to modify or maintain. Natural grass often requires constant professional landscape treatment, sodding, or chemical treatments, but synthetic grass requires none of this.

Whether it’s for public playgrounds, schools, day cares, public parks, dog parks, or outdoor sports fields, synthetic grass is the perfect option for saving money with a long-lasting material. We at Synthetic Turf Northwest understand this and make it our mission to be the best synthetic grass installer around. We proudly serve USA-made synthetic turf for various residential and commercial services. View our product selection and call us for an estimated quote.
