Do you struggle to keep your lawn looking prim and proper thanks to your furry friend? More and more pet owners are turning to synthetic grass to combat the inevitable mud bath that the combination of pooch meets grass brings. Here’s what you need to know about artificial grass and dogs!
Messy Days Are Over
An investment into artificial grass means you can say farewell to patchy grass and muddy patches! A fake lawn creates a safe and clean environment for your dog to play in, without the restrictions of keeping your garden pet-free on weed killer and fertiliser days.
Artificial grass cuts out the damage caused by burrowing by dogs – as it’s usually the fresh soil and dirt that triggers a dig. Of course, for the majority of dogs, digging is practically a past time, so why not try some bark chips – and create a fuss-free digging zone that can be easily swept back into place when play time is over – a much less destructive alternative to your carefully tended lawn!
It’s as Good as the Real Deal
Many owners are worried that their dogs will not like to play on new synthetic grass, but do not worry – gone are the days of cheap-feel lawns! Thanks to modern advancements, artificial grass is virtually indistinguishable from the real deal, and much like us humans, pets struggle to tell the difference.
Not forgetting with artificial lawns comes the added benefit of softer grass, your backyard will be much more friendly to soft paws and comfortable for pets to sprawl out on a hot summer’s day.
It’s a Clean Win
Of course, with every pup there comes the issue of dog urine and faeces – but because artificial grass is permeable, waste will either fall through or be easily cleaned off. If you’re starting to see a build-up of waste on your synthetic lawn, then simply hosing down the lawn after your dog has been to the toilet will do the trick.
For messiest of tasks, there are a range of cleaning solutions – from good old white vinegar to artificial grass friendly disinfectant.
