Owning a dog is one of life’s greatest joys. But it’s also a huge, lifelong commitment that requires a lot of work. And if your backyard is made of real grass, it can be even more challenging to care for your furry friend. Muddy paws, urine burns, digging holes—these issues can quickly turn your lawn into a mess while making pet care a hassle.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. Installing artificial grass in your backyard can greatly simplify pet care and maintenance in several ways.
1. Withstands Pets’ Tough Activities
Real grass deteriorates rapidly under pets’ rough play. Their digging, running and rolling around tramples and tears natural turf. Bald spots and mud patches appear no matter how much you try to keep up with lawn maintenance.
Our premium artificial grass products are rated to handle intense foot traffic. The turf holds up phenomenally under pets because of the durability engineered into the blades and backing. Your yard stays picture-perfect no matter how much Fido plays. No more bald spots, holes or uneven terrain.
2. Easy Clean-up of Waste
Picking up dog poop is one of the least pleasant chores for pet owners. The process is even messier if your yard turns muddy. Urine stains are another headache, leaving unsightly yellow spots on real grass.
Artificial turf makes waste cleanup much easier. Pet waste sits on top of the blades without seeping into the ground. It’s simple to spot and pick up. A hose spray washes away any leftover traces. The same goes for urine—it rinses away with no ugly stains left behind.
3. Deters Fleas, Ticks and Other Pests
Natural grass is a breeding ground for dangerous parasites like fleas and ticks. These biting pests easily latch onto your dog when playing in a real lawn.
In contrast, artificial turf easily deters these pesky insects. With no organic matter for them to hide and breed in, your yard becomes inhospitable to fleas, ticks and similar pests. Your pooch can play carefree without picking up any unwanted hitchhikers.
You also never need to apply pesticides on an artificial lawn. There are no worries over chemicals getting on your pets’ paws or being ingested, making it a much healthier environment all around.
4. Usable Year-Round, Rain or Shine
Texas weather extremes make real grass a challenge to maintain year-round. Scorching summers yellow and burn grass. Monsoon rains muck up yards with mud. Your poor pooch’s paws take a beating in these conditions.
An artificial lawn remains lush and usable no matter the weather. There’s no mud or burnt grass to contend with. The durable blades retain their vibrant color and texture through downpours, heat waves or anything in between. Your pet always has a clean, comfortable place to play and take care of business, all year long.
