Why You’ll Love Artificial Turfs for Your Pets


by Jhon Magno

Pets like dogs, give fulfillment especially when a person arrives from a busy day at work. These cute and cuddly animals are also very much willing to run after you every time you feel alone and don’t have somebody to talk to. Their warm gesture of “licking” your face is enough proof that they will stay beside you no matter what.

Their loyalty and unconditional love as an everyday companion is very difficult to equate these days. Many of us experience being forsaken by our dearest friends, but never in the case of dogs.

Certainly, everyone can relate that they are truly a “man’s best friend”. Despite of being too sentimental about the matter, why not use it as a motivation to repay our well-mannered pets as we provide them some of the best things that life has to offer?

Giving them unique gifts is not an indication of spoiling them; it’s a clear demonstration of our affection. Even though some owners think that dogs will find it hard to understand, their innate animal instinct will serve as a clue that what we did is a desire to show appreciation to them for making our lives complete.

Aside from food and shelter, there are other necessities that they have the right to enjoy. Why not install an artificial grass in your backyard?

I know it sounds too impractical to let our dogs play outside while scratching their paws on the surface of an artificial grass, but if you’ll think of this as an opportunity, later on you’ll discover that when your pets goes inside your house, especially in the living area, there’s no more dirty and muddy floors since the surface of a fake grass does not encourage the accumulation of wet or clammy soil in the backyard.

The best thing about synthetic grass is that, it really allows our pets to be active, even though we’re busy working at the office, leaving them while playing, running and rolling down in these grasses will not be a worry since it has safe, comfortable and soft texture.

Our pet’s hygiene is what we put as one of our top priorities. Bathing them with a gentle pet soap and shampoo can give them shiny coats, but did you know that if we forget to do this routine, they will be prone to acquiring pet ticks and flea? Synthetic grass is a recommended alternative because unlike natural grasses, it does not attract insects to reach the surface of your landscape.

Cleaning and maintaining these temporary grasses are also very easy. All you need to do is to scrub them with soap and wash the lather with just the right amount of water since it has an excellent drainage system, dog urine is washed away quickly. If you’re a certified pet lover, why not try installing an artificial grass just enough to cover his own space in the backyard and try to compare its difference with natural lawns.

Installing artificial turfs is just one of the many exciting ways on how you can reward your pets. Appreciate the benefits of artificial grass not only for your dogs but for you as a dog owner as well. Pursue unforgettable quality time with your pets, try rewarding them with artificial turfs.

  1. Great article. I’ve never really thought about installing artificial turf for pets, but the benefits you’ve mentioned make a lot of sense.

    If it keeps your dogs hygiene up and keeps your house cleaner it seems like a great idea!

  2. I just moved to Palm Spring Ca. from Ma. I knew I was moving to the desert but I did not know that my yard had no grass and no grass within walking distance. My dogs had no where to go and the Potty patches are just too small. I bought some artificial grass from a place that makes it for golf courses. My dog love it! Now they have a place to go potty and not on my rugs lol.

  3. Thanks! Very informative! I’ll try to install some artificial turfs on my yard. Hmm.. Well anything for my dog right? 🙂
