You may be considering artificial grass for pets in your garden because you know your family are going to get so much out of it. You’re going to get a lot out of it too because there’ll be no more mowing, no more hosing, or prepping the grass for moss, weeds and insects, with pesticides and insecticides which could be harmful to the environment.
Artificial grass today is more than capable of withstanding a pet running around on it!
It’s often believed that artificial grass isn’t even safe for pets because it’s too flimsy a material and won’t be able to withstand dogs or cats using it. This couldn’t be further from the truth as artificial grass has come a long way since the early heady days of the 1960s when Astro turf as it was once known, was a lurid shade of green and looked plastic and fake. Today, it’s made from a far more robust material and is used by pet owners throughout the UK safely. Pets love it because they can roll around and play on it to their hearts content without it ripping or tearing.
Do your pets suffer with allergies?
If so, then artificial grass for pets will be a godsend. Yes, pets can suffer with allergies just like humans. It can make them sneeze and cough and make the garden an unpleasant place to be. It doesn’t have to be like that though. If you switch to artificial grass your pets will love playing out in the garden again without the sneezing and, like adults, will enjoy the relief of being able to go outside without the uncomfortable sensations that allergies bring.
Are you concerned about your pets using the toilet?
If you have a dog or a cat, it’s only natural they’ll use the garden as a toilet occasionally, unless if they’re a dog they’re out on a walk, or if they’re cat perhaps, they live indoors. When you’re out with your dog, you’ll get rid of their solids by placing the in a bag and disposing of them hygienically. It’s the same in the garden, just let your pets do what they do naturally, you can then dispose of the solids hygienically, and all liquids are drained away into the surface below. Yes, artificial grass provides extremely good drainage, so you won’t have a build of liquids on the surface.
