What Are The Benefits Of Installing Artificial Turf For Dogs?

If you love showering heaps of attention on a pet and joining in on regular bouts of play both indoors and outdoors, then a dog would be a wonderful companion for you. While cats will spend much of the day sleeping, lazily exploring the house and quietly sitting by your side as you work on a computer or read a book, dogs will need to be exercised regularly, and this can translate to long outdoor walks, playtime at the park, or games of fetch right on the lawn.

Encouraging your pet dog to run back and forth across the lawn is such a natural activity, but many homeowners will admit that it can result in a few problems. Dogs will often sniff around and zero in on a spot to start digging on the lawn, creating ugly holes and unsightly clumps of tossed earth and grass all over the surface. And if the automatic sprinkler system catches the dog right on the lawn, a muddy mess is sure to follow. All in all, you have a dug-up lawn and a very wet and muddy dog who refuses to stay put and makes a beeline for the front door, charging straight into your immaculate couch and carpet.

To ensure that your beloved pet dog can engage in safe, happy and less destructive play on your property (and at the same time protect your home's facade from the destructive aftermath of an excited dog's play time), try having artificial turf for dogs installed on your lawn instead of maintaining a conventional, natural front lawn.

Artificial Turf For Dogs


Artificial? You may have your doubts about putting fake grass on your front lawn for everybody to see, but you might be surprised by the many benefits that artificial grass can give you. Cited below are a few of those notable benefits:

1. Fake as it may be, artificial grass matches the look of real grass — and even the dog won't be able to tell the difference.

2. Artificial turf is designed to be especially durable to withstand foot traffic and a dog's tendency to dig, scratch and chew — no more bald patches.

3. The grass keeps your dog clean. Urine and other fluids drain well, while wastes can be simply cleaned up by spraying with a hose. The grass will not be stained.

4. The infill and permeable backing of artificial turf are non-toxic, so you won't need to worry about your dog's health.

5. Fake grass will not need watering, trimming, fertilizing, and other time consuming and tedious lawn care activities. It can substantially improve your home's water conservation capabilities.

This type of grass is also ideal for dog parks, dog and pet resorts, shelters, kennels and pet boarding facilities. With safety, easy cleanup and durability, artificial grass is a must for any household with a treasured pooch.

  1. I never would of guessed that turf could be so beneficial for dogs. I really like how you said that “he grass keeps your dog clean. Urine and other fluids drain well, while wastes can be simply cleaned up by spraying with a hose. The grass will not be stained.” I have never used turf before but it is good to know that it will help to keep my dog and grass clean at all times.
