Artificial Grass vs. Natural Grass
If you own a dog, you know how much of a mess they can make doing their business in the yard. While natural grass does have its advantages, it also has some drawbacks, especially when it comes to pets. Cleaning up after your dog might seem simple, but chances are you’re not getting everything. That creates unsanitary conditions which can contain bacteria including E. coli and Salmonella.
Your dog may also be tracking in some of that waste on their paws, making matters even worse. There are even complicated guides online explaining how to pick up those “pet piles”. By now, you likely see how natural grass might not be the best option for homeowners with dogs, so what else can you do?
Artificial pet grass is a great option for those with dogs who do their business on the lawn. Artificial grass isn’t susceptible to dying or becoming discolored. Your dog’s solids are easily picked up, and their urine runs right through the surface. Therefore, all you need to do is rinse off the grass with a hose and it will be as good as news!
Artificial grass does not retain unpleasant odors and it is virtually impossible for dogs to dig through. Your dogs also won’t be able to track in mud from the yard and you won’t need to maintain your lawn or waste water. Your pets will also stay cleaner and healthier because synthetic grass deters fleas and ticks. Artificial pet turf is also lead-free, making it non-toxic to animals and the environment.
