Artificial Grass is really a great option for pet owners, as your pets will enjoy artificial turf just as much as real grass but without all the dirt, mess, and ruined lawns!
Artificial grass and dogs – why choose it?
Maintaining your garden can take up a lot of time and effort, especially if you have a dog or other pets at home. Dogs can often dig up real grass, make a lot of mess that needs picking up and they can traipse mud in and spread it all around the home – particularly in wetter months!
Synthetic grass is strong and durable, making it impossible for dogs to dig through, resulting in a pretty lawn regardless of how much digging effort your dog may take! Artificial grass also thankfully means the end of harmful chemicals that can be poisonous to animals. Our artificial grass is also 100% non-toxic and safe for animals to roam around freely without risk of getting poorly from toxins, diseases or illnesses that can be picked up.
Artificial grass is also a great option for dog kennels due to its low maintenance values. By reducing maintenance hours, this allows kennel staff to have more time to spend looking after the animals rather than taking care of maintenance in the garden – or reduces cost by not needing to employ a gardener.

Natural or artificial grass?
Natural grass requires a lot of maintenance especially throughout the summer months when grass grows at a faster rate due to the sun exposure. And throughout the winter it is easy for dogs to bring in wet mud and walk it all around the house making a mess along the way – whilst this may be fun for the dog, it can be tiresome for the owner. On top of this, a real lawn can actually be more of a danger to animals due to picking up unwanted bugs such as ticks and fleas and also being prone to poisonous substances such as licking weed killer off of grass and plants. More often than not, homeowners that are lucky enough to have a garden can spend a fortune on lawn maintenance products to keep your lawn looking nice, only to be left frustrated at the results – all of which can be highly toxic to dogs and pets.
Artificial grass, however, requires little or no maintenance allowing you and your pets more time to enjoy your garden. Once the artificial lawn has been laid it is safe for pets to use freely throughout the year with peace of mind for the owner that they are safe and won’t be bringing any mud or picking up any nasty bugs or toxins.
Cleaning Dog Turf
One thing a lot of pet owners are worried about is, how to clean artificial grass after their dogs and pets have done their business on it. All of our synthetic lawns are permeable so all dog mess can be cleaned and picked up easily. Rain will help to clean your fake grass but you can also do this manually with a hose, disinfectant or an artificial grass cleaner.
Or now, you can try our electric powered artificial grass brush, not only does this help with the maintenance of your lawn, it re-vitalises the fibres and makes it look like new.
Pet urine can cause a lot of damage to real grass due to its high PH level. This can often leave patchy discoloured grass throughout your garden that can be hard to bring back to life. However, artificial grass will not be damaged by the PH level of urine. This is where artificial grass can be a real benefit to pet owners. Not only will your garden maintenance be reduced, but your costs of endless products to bring colour back to your lawn will also be eliminated. Urine and other waste are easy to spot and straightforward to clean. Rainwater washes away the urine and any muck left behind from other animal waste. If there is a drought particularly during warmer summer months, simply wash away with water or use your hosepipe.
Does urine affect artificial grass or cause any discolouring?
The plastic fibres of artificial grass do not discolour therefore you are guaranteed an inviting vivid green garden all year round, unlike real grass. There are drainage holes in our artificial grass that allow for urine to drain away quickly and easily without damaging your lawn.
How much is artificial grass for dogs?
The cost of artificial grass varies depending on what grass you choose and the size, starting from just £ 9.49 a square metre. Or, you could use our artificial grass off cuts or artificial grass pre-cuts as a cheaper alternative. A full artificial grass installation as a guide price can start from as little as £46.00 per square metre.
You can save money by installing it yourself. For more information, find out how to do this here. If you are planning on installing your artificial grass for pets on concrete, you should consider purchasing our 10mm artificial grass underlay, to help cushion your new lawn on such a hard surface.
