Is Artificial Grass Pet Friendly?

Artificial turf installation is becoming increasingly popular among pet lovers. A growing number of dog parks and daycare centers are opting for pet turf installation over traditional lawns.

Artificial grass for pets is much more resilient than traditional lawns as it can withstand any wear and tear inflicted by the dog’s claws, paws, or nails. Since the pet cannot dig through artificial turf, many professional dog boarders and pet owners choose using artificial grass for dogs over traditional grass.

Chemical Free

Pet turf installation is a great way to create a safe environment for pets and protect them from exposure to harmful lawn chemicals. Unlike real grass, synthetic grass does not allow the growth of weeds. So there’s no need for fertilizers, herbicides, and chemicals used to kill weeds.

Potty Breaks

Dogs can not only play and roll to their heart’s content, but they can also urinate on artificial grass. However, unlike natural grass, synthetic turf does not absorb or breakdown all the components of dog waste. The surface has a porous backing allowing for pet urine to seep through and drain away, but the dog poop will need manual cleaning and scooping. After stashing away the feces, flush out the remnants to get rid of any lingering smell or mess.

Another option is to install dog-friendly designated poop patches, which allows you to lift a small section of the fake grass and clean it thoroughly. These pet turf installation features allow for maximum absorption and draining.

Flees & Ticks

Artificial grass does not allow for these parasites to live inside the grass blades. However, it cannot guarantee 100 percent elimination. While there is no soil to support their nesting, accumulation of debris and leaves can create a conducive breeding environment. If you maintain a clean artificial lawn, then you can reduce the chances of fleas and ticks to a great extent.
