5 Reasons Why Artificial Turf is the Best Option for Your Furry Companions

If there’s one thing a man’s best friend needs is to get outside for some fresh air and get the much-needed exercise. Under good weather, most pet owners don’t have a problem letting their pets out. However, when it’s rainy and muddy, those muddy paws are a no-no.

These are the types of dilemmas that pet owners face when it comes to their furry friends and their yards. If you are facing this kind of problem, you should consider getting a turf perfect for pets.

If you are still on the fence about artificial grass, here are some well-known benefits for pet owners like you.

 

1. No More Muddy Paws

Many pet owners hesitate to let their furry friend out the yard because of the mud. Even the smallest amount of moisture coupled with running around pets will create mud. Of course, letting them in with muddy paws will only result in lots of cleaning.

Artificial pet turf eliminates this problem because there’s simply no mud. Whether it’s rainfall or moisture, your dog can freely play outside without the muddy paws after.

 

2. Easy to Clean

The main benefit of artificial turf installation is that it’s incredibly easy to clean. Even if your dog does his business on the turf, cleaning up afterward is never a hassle.

For pet urine, you can simply hose down the affected area and it will be drained through the turf’s built-in drainage system. For solid waste, you can easily spot, pick-up, and dispose of it. Just like that, the turf will look spotless and safe to play in again.

 

3. No Chemical Products

For traditional grass, you need to use fertilizers, pesticides, weed killers, and other chemicals for maintenance. Needless to say, these toxic compounds can harm your furry friend.

With synthetic pet turf, you can say goodbye to such chemicals because you don’t need to use them. The maintenance steps boil down to sweeping and hosing the turf regularly. You don’t have to worry about toxic ingredients that may harm your pet.

 

 

4. No Digging

We all know how annoying it is when dogs dig up the garden and leave considerable damage. If your dog likes to dig, an artificial pet turf installation is in order.

With artificial grass, there’s simply nothing for your pet to dig and your yard will look perfect and spotless.

 

5. Great for Play

Perhaps the best benefit of artificial turf for your pet is that it’s a fantastic surface to play on. An initial concern for pet owners is that their dogs will not like the new artificial lawn. Fortunately, such concerns are unfounded because pets just won’t be able to tell the difference.

Most modern artificial lawns are soft to the touch and pets can play and roll around them without any problems.

 

Your Pets Will Love Your New Artificial Turf Installation

With artificial pet turf, you and furry companions can enjoy the yard all year long. You know your lawn will always look beautiful and your pets will love it. Contact our experts at SYNLawn for any questions regarding turf and installation.
