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, no spraying, allowing for extra time enjoying the space with family, friends, and animals.

For many forms, it is recommended 1-2 lbs. of infill per sq. ft. is 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.

Greatmats pet turf uses cutting edge technology and state of the art manufacturing to create consistent products that are recognized as the industry standard. Where it comes down to quality, design, and material for blades and backings, ours is the best choice.

Easy to Clean Pet Turf System

The right type cleans better than natural turfs. The faux lawn won’t 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 the feces. The urine is high in nitrogen, which can burn the lawn at its roots and create permanent dead spots.Rinse and groom 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.

Doggies enjoy digging whenever they can, producing bald spots in yards, which 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. None of these parasites find the man-made lawns terribly appealing. With these, summers can be a carefree fun fest for puppies and full grown canines alike.

Key Pet Turf Cost Features

Dog turf must be manufactured from a polyethylene or polypropylene material. Avoid nylon, as it is very porous.

It should be laid out with a specialized backing style to maximize draining. Most of these also incorporate antimicrobial agents to prevent the growth of toxins and to neutralize odors. Occasionally, a customer may decide to make use of selections that will be 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 mud that can be tracked back indoors.
  3. It always looks like green grass, all year around or even if there are drought conditions going on, thanks to the consistent color.
  4. Urine will not cause a discoloration of the indoor dog run.
  5. The pile height remains consistent, so it’s comfortable on the paws without worries about tripping or stumbling.
  6. Grass mats for dogs are going to provide extra comfort.
  7. These can be environmentally friendly, sometimes consist of recycled materials, and always use the safest ingredients.
  8. 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. Certain cheaply made types could consist of ingredients that heat up uncomfortably in the summer sun, although we at Greatmats have a high quality catalog of synthetic turf products for pets, where this issue is not a problem.
  2. Odor controlling 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 grasses area for playing for pets is extremely safe, as the materials we use in our products are not toxic to an animal or child. Additionally, there are no needs to add pesticides or fertilizers, which can be poisonous for an animal, which would need to be used for real grass rolls.

Do puppies like faux turfs?
Yes! They are able to use them just as they use actual grasses, other than they are unable to dig into it and create 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 installing 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.
