Dogs are man’s best friend, but they also come with certain responsibilities. These responsibilities can be tedious at times, but it is all worth it. One thing you might have a problem with is how your dog treats your lawn. You may be able to do something about this problem by considering artificial grass for the sake of you and your dog.
Why Is Artificial Grass For Pets a Good Idea?
You might not think that fake grass for dogs is a better choice, but that could be because you have not thought of all the issues you have encountered.
Take, for example, the irritating moment you see your dog walk around on your clean floor (or recently shampooed carpet) with muddy paws. Of course, this is not your dog’s fault, as he or she is simply doing what a dog is supposed to do. But that does not change the issue of muddied paws. There is not much you can do about this issue unless you keep track of your dog every moment, and clean your pet’s paws every time he or she comes into your home.
Of course you cannot stop watering your lawn to prevent the muddy tracks, unless you want your lawn to start looking unappealing, which could bring down your home’s property value. Not to mention a few neighbors might start looking at you differently.
Thankfully, this is a problem that you do not have to deal with because there is a solution, and it is artificial grass for home lawns that you can purchase at wholesale prices to save some money.
But this is not the only issue that a dog owner faces if he or she sticks with a real lawn. Many dogs like to dig holes in the yard. This is usually done to bury things or when they are hunting ground-dwelling animals, but this can leave your yard in shambles. All that digging creates patches of grass that do not match the rest of your lawn. This creates more work for you or your landscaping company.
This is yet another reason that artificial turf for dogs is a good idea. High quality artificial grass will help prevent your dog from digging a hole through the grass because it is thick and almost impossible to tear. Though there are some additional precautions you can take to keep your dog from digging through your artificial grass that your grass specialist can help you with.
You should also remember that real grass attracts insects like ticks, which can easily make their way into your dog’s fur. This is something that you will not have to worry about when you install artificial grass. Think of this grass as one more safety measure to help ensure your dog stays free of ticks, meaning you should not have to worry about incurring more veterinarian bills related to real lawns.
Another good thing about artificial turf is its strength (as mentioned above). The synthetic grass will seem somewhat thin when installers place it over your lawn. But do not be fooled by its appearance because synthetic grass is very strong. It is usually made from reinforced materials that include the following:
- Polyethylene or PE is soft and durable, but it is also skin-friendly, meaning your dog can do all the scratching or scrubbing he or she wants without worrying about skin damage.
- Polypropylene or PP is a lot stiffer and durable. This is great for dogs who like to get a little rough with the grass.
- Nylon is probably the hardest material, but it is extremely durable and could deal with anything your dog might do but also with other aspects of everyday life. You don’t have to worry about big dents on the lawn; heavy items can be put on the lawn without destroying it.
These are just some of the materials available to you, but there are several more that could fit your specific needs. All you need to do is talk to your synthetic grass specialist about the features that you want the grass to have. Remember that all these materials can imitate any type of grass, meaning that your artificial grass can be any type that you want. No matter what you choose, everyone will see green perfection. You will definitely be the king or queen of neighborhood.
One more thing that you should consider about residential turf lawns is that your installer can help you integrate a good drainage system. All you have to do is install under-drain system that will work with the grass itself. Artificial grass has an impeccable rapid back-flow system that makes it easy for the water to clean the area. Adding this drainage system will help clean out urine and any other substances that might be in your grass. Best of all, odors do not live in synthetic materials well, so–as long as your water cleans the grass from time to time–you will never have to worry about foul odors emitting from your yard.
Just so you know, you do not have to clean the lawn often, every few weeks will be okay. Of course you do not have to worry about cleaning when it rains or snows. This is a major change from dealing with a lawn that needs to be watered frequently. In fact, you may even see your water bill go down because you will not need to water your lawn all the time. Opting for synthetic grass may keep some money in your pocket.
You might be also wondering if your dog will like the grass. Dogs generally like artificial grass, and you might find them rolling around on it every now and then. They will relieve themselves without the messy clean up you might have with natural grass.
Hopefully you can see why switching to synthetic grass is a good idea for your home, your family, and especially your dog. You can talk to a synthetic grass specialist about your options and what will work best for your home.
