If you have pets, then it’s more than likely they love playing in the garden and while they’re out playing, it’s likely you get a lot of mud and clumps of grass everywhere.
If you’re tired of having a messy garden, and as much as you love your dog, sick of them bringing in muddy paws, perhaps it’s time to invest in Artificial Grass. It is the ideal product for customers who have pets in their household.
In this blog we are going to be talking about the many benefits of artificial grass for pets. And once you have read the many benefits there is, I think you will be very impressed!
As we all know, especially being a pet owner, dogs love to bring in all kinds of ticks, ants and fleas. Which can not only cling on to your dog’s coat, but they also bring them in to the house. Pests won’t have such a great time of it with artificial grass because they just don’t like it. They’ll rather just go and find some real grass to have fun with. That way, by getting the artificial grass installed, you’ve got a pest free area for your dogs to relax. And you would no longer need to worry about any ticks, etc coming into your home.
4 Benefits of Artificial Grass for Pets.
Artificial Grass Is Easy to Clean
It is fair to say, I think the biggest benefit for many pet owners in this respect is that artificial turf is incredibly easy to clean. This means that even if your dog uses it as his private bathroom, then there is no hassle in keeping it clean afterward.
You can easily hose the grass down to get rid of liquid waste, while any solids can be spotted and then picked up and safely disposed of. This means that you will feel confident that it will always be safe to play on this grass or have a picnic on it with the family.
If your dog doesn’t do his business out there then you should still be sure to clean it now and then. By hosing off any dirt or dust that has gathered on the grass you will leave it looking spotless and very inviting to spend time on.
This compares favourably with natural grass, in which it is easy to overlook a nasty little surprise that someone ends up sitting or standing on. It can be difficult to spot anything lurking in natural grass, especially if the ground is uneven or if the grass is long – and don’t forget the mud.
No More Chemicals
The difference between real grass and artificial grass is that you’ll find artificial grass doesn’t need treatment, like real grass does. So, you can avoid using harmful chemicals such as pesticides, fertilisers or weed killers. This is great for the environment and for your wallet / purse also! Artificial grass is also extremely tough and durable.
Low Maintenance Surface
Artificial grass is low maintenance too with very little required to keep it in good condition. Just an occasional sweep with a brush to get rid of any debris and a wash every now and again, that’s it. It’s also permeable, so urine will drain away, and any faeces can be picked up and placed in the bin, with just a quick wipe of the area after. You definitely won’t need to mow it, so you can put the mower away and you should save money on electricity or diesel, whichever way your mower is usually powered.
Dogs Seem to Love Artificial Grass
There is no need to worry about your dog maybe not liking the artificial grass, they usually love it! It’s a great play area for them and it’s lovely and soft to walk around on, but still tough enough for them to pay on till their heart is content. They can play out on it all year round and there’ll be no muddy paw prints when they come in from the garden. What a lovely benefit of artificial grass for pets.
