The reasons for installing artificial grass on your property are many-fold, ranging from enjoying the maintenance-free aspects, to the cost savings, being kind to the environment and many others. But those are human reasons for installing a lawn made of artificial grass – what about for the four-legged members of the family?
Artificial grass makers haven’t forgotten about Fido and Whiskers and the rest of the gang. There are many reasons why they’re going to love your new artificial lawn just as much as you will, which we’re going to discuss in just a moment.
Some of these pet-related benefits of artificial lawns may seem rather obvious to you, but we’re willing to bet there’s at least one thing on our list that’s never occurred to you. Let’s get started and find out.
Artificial Grass Can Keep Your Pet Securely In The Yard
How many times have you gone out into your yard, or into a friend’s yard, and seen a big hole near the fence where the family dog has tunneled under and escaped? If it hasn’t happened to you, it’s probably happened to someone you know.
If you have an artificial lawn, this isn’t going to happen. Your pup won’t be able to dig in the grass because it’s not natural, it only looks like it is.
So when you put Fido in the backyard, you can rest assured that he’s going to remain there safe and sound. And as an added bonus, your yard will look a lot better without all those holes that are left behind by an overactive canine.
Artificial Grass Can Keep Your Pet Clean and Dirt-Free
Dogs love rolling around in the dirt and mud, as well as laying down in the sun and taking a nap. With an artificial lawn, they can roll around to their heart’s content and take that mid-afternoon snooze without dragging a lot of dirt into the house later on.
When your pet comes back inside after a few hours in the backyard, they should look just as clean as when you put them outside to begin with.
No dirty paw prints, no need for a bath, no having to clean up later. Your pup can have a fun time outside in your artificial grass and come in looking and smelling good as new.
Artificial Grass Can Protect Against Pet Stains
You know those areas of discoloration that occur in a yard after the dog urinates in that particular area? Not only does this make your lawn look unappealing from a visual standpoint, but it also burns and kills the grass in those spots.
With an artificial lawn, this also isn’t going to happen. If your dog pees in a certain spot, you’re really not even going to notice it.
And if you know the areas where your dog likes to do his or her business, just take a hose to it from time to time or even just wait for it to rain. It will all be washed away and be like it never happened.
Artificial Grass Means No Thorns or Other Sticky Things in Your Pet’s Paws
If you have an artificial grass lawn, this means there’s nothing growing underneath where your pet will be stepping. So no thorns, no stones and really no anything that can get in his or her paws and cause discomfort or pain.
This means a much safer area for your pet to play, as well as your kids and even the adults. You can enjoy a fun-filled day in the backyard without having to worry about what lies underneath the grass.
