Certain of our options have a backing that is constructed from heavy-duty polyurethane. This is designed to resist expansion or contraction due to environmental conditions. It requires no mowing, no watering, and no spraying, allowing for extra time to enjoy the space with family, friends, and animals.

For many forms, it is recommended 1-2 lbs. of infill per sq. ft. be added, but not all require infill. So always ask about the specifics of the fake grass for dogs when speaking with one of our knowledgeable representatives.

Easy to Clean Pet Turf System

The right type of turf cleans better than natural turf. The faux lawn won’t be thin or yellow due to regular use. Because it is man-made, an odor-eliminating product can be used without killing the lawn.

Doggy urine is even more damaging to grassy lawns than feces. The urine is high in nitrogen, which can burn the lawn at its roots and create permanent dead spots. Rinse and sweep this faux pet turf as needed to limit matting. This material, by the nature of its composition, does run the risk of matting. Be sure to discuss the level of use with the installer to make sure it is the right one for the job.

Dogs enjoy digging whenever they can, producing bald spots in yards that will result in dirt and mud getting tracked into the house. This is not the case with turfs consisting of synthetics.

Also common in a real yard is the presence of parasites such as fleas and ticks, as well as snakes. These parasites find man-made lawns less appealing. With these, summers can be a carefree fun fest for puppies and full-grown canines alike.

Key Pet Turf Cost Features

Dog turf is generally manufactured from a polyethylene or polypropylene material.

It should be laid out with a specialized backing style to maximize drainage. Most of these also incorporate antimicrobial agents to prevent the growth of toxins and neutralize odors. Occasionally, a customer may decide to make use of selections that are devoid of infill, as this will prevent the retention of moisture. The ideal model is one that airs well.

Installed Artificial Turf for Dogs: Pros and Cons

There are quite a few advantages to pet turf rolls, including:
  1. Requires very little maintenance, meaning customers do not need to mow, weed, fertilize, or water the area.
  2. If it rains or if snow is melting, pets can still use it because there won’t be concerns about the mud that can be tracked back indoors.
  3. It always looks like green grass, all year round or even if there are drought conditions going on, thanks to the consistent color.
  4. The pile height remains consistent, so it’s comfortable on the paws without worrying about tripping or stumbling.
  5. Grass mats for dogs are going to provide extra comfort.
  6. These can be environmentally friendly, sometimes consist of recycled materials, and always use the safest ingredients.
  7. The pet-friendly artificial grass cost is lower than most customers think, especially considering what people have to spend to keep natural grasses in tip-top shape by avoiding spots that are bare, removing weeds, watering, and mowing regularly.

The cons of having this are rare, but there are a few items for pet owners to watch out for if trying to select the right unit for their own situation, including:
  1. Turf can heat up uncomfortably in the summer sun. To combat this, choose a lightly colored turf.
  2. Odor control in pet areas is just as difficult with this as with a natural grass play area, so a customer will want to pick up the solid pet waste on a regular basis.

FAQ Pet Turf Q&A

Is synthetic grass good for animals?
Yes, as long as the installation happens with a well-made model. Creating a fake grass area for pet play areas is safe, as the materials we use in our products are not toxic to an animal or child. Additionally, there is no need to add pesticides or fertilizers, which can be poisonous for animals and would need to be used for real grass rolls.

Do puppies like faux turf?
Yes! They are able to use them just as they use actual grasses, other than being resistant to digging unwanted holes. Stick with a well-built product, and the animals will be happy with the purchase.

Can you do a pet turf installation yourself?
Of course, but it goes significantly faster if more people are involved. Often times, these rolls can be extremely heavy, so the work goes more smoothly when power equipment is on hand to move them around. Smaller sections may be easier for a single person to handle. Some of our customers choose to go with a pro to handle the installation process, while others will look to save some money and attempt to do it on their own.

Can a pet pee and poop on artificial grass for dogs?
Sure! When canines are on fake pet grass materials, they can continue to do their business, especially in a doggy daycare environment. It is designed to allow for drainage. In the case of solid waste, treat it as if it happened in a public place. Solids won’t damage it, but periodic cleaning is still recommended.

Is artificial pet turf bad for my dog?
No, as long as the manufacturer uses safer ingredients in creating the product. A grass mat for dogs can be just as safe, and in some ways safer, than actual grassy locales.
