When you think you have had all you can take of the destruction your dogs have done to your yard, artificial turf gives pet owners a piece of their sanity back. No matter how many dogs or how big, synthetic grass will be able to stand up to the wear and tear of their paws and claws. In addition, it also eliminates any problems you have had with mud and puddles.
Artificial turf has come a long way since its inception years ago. Today, it looks and feels realistic and extremely low maintenance. Our dog run here at the office has an artificial turf that the dogs absolutely love – and so do we. Considering artificial turf? Here’s what you need to know!
Do your research. There are so many different companies that offer many types of turf, and it’s important that you get the right type for your climate and situation installed.
Consider artificial turf for its superior drainage qualities. It drains quicker and more effectively than that of natural or real grass. One of the first steps in the installation process is putting down the drainage system, and once again the type depends on the company you choose to go with.
Think about the cost. When considering the costs of maintenance for a natural lawn, a synthetic grass lawn actually saves much more money and is less costly than many people think. Aside from being an asset that raises value to your property, synthetic grass lasts for several years, and thus saves money on monthly bills that add up, including water and gas.
It’s tough. Take into account the fact that artificial grass has been used on both professional and college sports fields around the nation. With its meticulous engineering and lasting materials, artificial grass is made to withstand the most rough performance and play.
Maintenance is minimal for artificial turf. Picking up loose objects and materials regularly helps turf to keep its manicured aesthetic. Rinse periodically to avoid the smell of dog urine if you live in a drier climate, and treat it as you would grass….you can rake it or use a leaf blower.
