Artificial Grass For Dogs and Pets
If you have a dog, you may be unsure about whether artificial grass is right for you. Your dog needs somewhere to play but also somewhere to go to the toilet, and you might not picture artificial grass as being a suitable option. After all, soil and natural grass can absorb urine and help to prevent odours or mess. However, you don't need to be hesitant about switching to artificial grass if you have dogs or other pets. You simply need to choose the right product and ensure it's installed properly if you want to benefit from a practical, clean alternative to natural grass. With the right installation, you won't have any nasty odours spoiling your garden.
We use a unique triple-layered, urine neutralising, self-draining, and cleaning base.
Our grass is completely protected from pet smells as it is installed using the correct method and base product. Our grass has a base layer that's designed and manufactured with pets in mind. You can use it in your garden and other spaces without fear that it will be ruined by your pets. If set up correctly, it's just as suitable for cats, dogs, and other pets as it is for people.
Correct Installation of Artificial Grass
One of the most important things to do if you want to install artificial grass for a household with pets is to make sure that it's installed in an appropriate way, that's where we come in. The correct installation of artificial grass should allow for proper drainage, which will help the grass to remain clean and reduce the chance of odours. The correct membrane needs to be used and it should be laid in the right position within the substructure to allow for drainage. The membrane needs to be completely porous so that liquids can pass through it. Other essential elements include an aggregate with neutralising properties to help deal with odours and a holding drainage layer for the summer months. We never use a sand infill, which will block drainage and prevent the grass from being self-cleaning.
Artificial Grass Is the Practical Option for Pets
There are several reasons you might decide against natural grass, even when you have a dog or other pets. Natural grass can be tricky to care for, and you need to give it plenty of attention if you want it to stay looking good. Owning a dog can make it more difficult because if there's a particular spot where your dog likes to urinate, you can find the grass becomes discoloured or struggles to survive.
Artificial grass is a lot cleaner and easier to maintain. You won't have to deal with mud, which means you won't have to wipe off your dog's muddy paws. Not only that, but pets love the feel of our artificial grass. You only have to take a look at some of our photos to see that they're happy to play and even sleep on top of our soft artificial turf, which looks realistic too.
Artificial grass is an excellent choice for anyone with dogs, cats, or other pets. It's hygienic and self-cleaning if installed correctly, so get in touch with us today to find out more.
