Artificial Turf and Pets: Have Your Cake and Eat It

April 11, 2017

The day you install artificial turf is the day when you won’t feel like you have to choose between having either a gorgeous yard or a pet. It’s like having your perfect cake and eating it- take it from your trusted local San Diego landscaping company. Here’s why you’ll love your pet-friendly outdoor space once you have it covered in artificial turf.

It’s very, very close to the original

If natural grass is too much hassle for you, you don’t have to settle for parched soil, nor do you have to resort to concrete, gravel or other hard surfaces. Artificial turf comes in many varieties now and with the advancement in technology, it now greatly resembles the real thing. It’s highly likely people won’t know it’s not real grass unless you tell them. Not only does it seem real to the eyes, but it also feels real.

If pets could have a say in the landscaping design of your yard, we are sure they’d vote for artificial grass over hard ground or hard surfaces. It feels nice and supple to their feet, just like real grass.

It’s very low-maintenance

Artificial turf will cost you less time and less money. Natural grass requires regular mowing and maintenance, possibly by a professional. The conditions of your plot may require a lot of additional products and care for natural lawn to look good. That’s all done away with when you go for artificial grass.

This type of turf also contributes to lower maintenance of your pets, most notably dogs. Since artificial turf is lush and thick in all weather conditions, you can say goodbye to muddy paws and dusty coats.

It’s always beautiful

Whenever you look outside your window or go outside, your verdant turf will welcome you with the same vivacity as ever, regardless of whether it’s raining cats and dogs or the sun is scorching away. It will also be as gorgeous as ever even when your dog plays on it, scratches it with its paws, tries to dig around, etc. Artificial turf is highly durable and pet-resistant in a way.

It’s safer to some extent

Natural lawn can be uneven and cause your dog or children to trip when playing on it. Artificial turf is as level as possible, so no surprises when running and playing on it.

Artificial grass also eliminates the need for possibly toxic chemicals, weed killers and pesticides that you might need to keep a natural lawn wholesome. Talking of toxins, you should know that artificial grass is perfectly safe and non-toxic.
