Cleanup Simplified: How Pet-Friendly Turf Eliminates Your Furry Friend’s Messes

July 31, 2023

Pets are a part of the family and a major source of happiness for you and your loved ones. However, they can also cause their fair share of frustration and messes, from tracking mud in the house to leaving unpleasant odors in their wake.

Luckily, synthetic grass provides a wide variety of benefits for pets and their owners. By switching to artificial turf landscaping for your home or pet-friendly business, you can reduce your furry friend’s messes and save more time for both you and them to enjoy the outdoors together. Here are just a few of the ways in which pet turf can help you keep your home mess-free.

Don’t Worry About Digging

If you have a dog at home, then there’s a high likelihood that they’ve dug holes in your backyard. Dogs love to dig at dirt, which not only creates unsightly spots in your yard but also creates a trip hazard for guests and family members.

While natural grass is highly susceptible to doggy digging, artificial turf is woven with durable polyethylene fibers and a resilient polyurethane backing that can resist any attempts to dig through it. That means that no much how much your dog tries to dig, your synthetic grass blades will remain in place — no ankle-breaker holes or ugly divots in sight.

No Muddy Paws

The benefits of soil-free synthetic grass go beyond digging. The lack of soil in synthetic turf installation means that your pup won’t get their paws muddy during their daily runarounds. Even during a rainstorm, you can let your dog back into the house without worrying about tons of mud getting tracked everywhere.

This is further aided by synthetic turf’s remarkable drainage system, which drains at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard. Thanks to turf’s efficient drainage, your grass will dry as soon as the clouds have parted, allowing your pup to enjoy a clean, dry backyard right away.

Prevent Allergies

Did you know that your pets can suffer from pollen allergies just like you do? Although your furry friend may love frolicking in the grass all day, they may suffer from symptoms of hayfever such as sneezing, itching, or a runny nose. Luckily, synthetic grass is hypoallergenic and drastically reduces the amount of pollen found in your backyard.

This means that your pup can run and play to their heart’s content without worrying about the negative effects of allergies. It also prevents allergies for you and your family members too, since a lower pollen count means that there will be less pollen tracked into the house by your four-legged friend after their outdoor romps.

Reduce Pet Odors

One of the biggest reasons that pet owners make the switch to pet-friendly turf is because of the brown, dead lawn patches caused by pet urine. Artificial grass remains evergreen even if your pet uses it as a bathroom, but that isn’t the only benefit of turf when it comes to pet waste.

With proper artificial turf maintenance, your synthetic grass will help keep your lawn more sanitary and eliminate pet odors associated with pet urine and waste. Efficient drainage combined with antimicrobial turf accessories such as infill and turf deodorizer will help keep your lawn looking good, smelling fresh, and safe for every member of the family to enjoy.
