In this blog, we’re discussing the benefits of artificial grass for your pets. We know you love your animals as much as the rest of your family, so if you’re thinking of installing artificial turf but you’ve been holding back because you’re concerned it won’t be right for your pet, then you’ve come to the right place because we can reassure you you’re absolutely doing the right thing.
Poor weather equals mud and grass stains
Natural grass isn’t always the best surface for pets to spend time on, especially when there’s been heavy rain or snow. They’ll often dig it up, and it can become bogged down with dog solids and wee, meaning there are soon bald patches everywhere and grass and mud will also be dragged into the house. With artificial grass you can dispense with that forever and have beautiful lush green grass all year around.
A change of surface isn’t an issue for your dog or cat
Pets will be more than happy with the change of surface and wont find it a problem. For one thing, any solids can be removed and cleaning liquids quickly drained away. Your pets can play outside in it without digging it up or bringing mess indoors. No more dirty kitchen floors then!
Pet allergies will be a thing of the past
If you’ve pets that are allergic to grass pollen, then an artificial grass lawn is going to be ideal for them. We know that pollen can have a detrimental impact on people, but it can also have a big impact on animals too. So artificial turf gives your pets relief from sneezing and coughing and lets them enjoy scampering around in the garden.
Far less maintenance for you and plenty of playtime for your dog or cat
From your point of view, artificial grass is ideal because you will have far less maintenance to consider because you won’t be mowing or watering it. This means that not only are you saving money on energy bills you’re also helping the planet, and that’s no more worry about hose pipe bans because you won’t be needing one.
No more need for chemicals which could potentially harm your pets
In the past you may have used pesticides, herbicides or fungicides to rid your lawn of weeds, moss and a variety of other pests. This can potentially harm an animal, so you may not have been using them anyway, meaning your lawn will have been prey to all sorts of nature’s pesky insects and weeds. However, this will no longer be a problem because you’ll have no need for them.
