Posted on: December 19, 2016

If you have a dog and are worried about how safe artificial turf is, it’s time to take a closer look. Not only is artificial turf for dogs a great way to keep your yard looking great year-round, it’s 100 percent safe for your pet—perhaps even safer than traditional lawns when you factor in pesticides and fertilization treatments. Here are some things to consider about the safety of artificial turf in a home with pets.

Artificial Turf Is Safe for Dogs

You’d think natural grass is safer for your dog, but you’re forgetting about modern-day lawn treatments. would you want to be rolling around in grass with pesticides and chemicals from lawn treatments?

Artificial turf, when you install the right product, poses no risk to your pets. The durable polyethylene material we use is not easily chewed or torn. It also creates less of a risk of pests, like fleas and ticks, than traditional grass. It cannot be dug up either, and resists the traffic patterns of busy pets exploring their space. In many ways, it’s a superior option if you have pets.

The Key to Pet-Friendly Turf? Drainage

Artificial turf for dogs is a great option for your home, but only on one condition: The turf needs to be designed with exceptional drainage. This allows pet urine to flow away from the grass, preventing odors and other problems. With fast drainage, urine smells are never a problem.

Capitol Turf Pros uses polyethylene, one of the industry’s highest quality synthetic turf products specifically designed for exceptional drainage. Pet urine quickly drains away, leaving your lawn lush and clean, and eliminating the dead spots common in traditional lawns for families who have pets. It’s also easy to take out the hose and spray it down every so often if there’s one particular spot your dog likes to use.

For solid waste, clean up is a breeze. All you need to do is wash the lawn with water after picking up what you wish to pick up by hand, and all of the solid waste is washed away.

As you can see, as long as the turf has excellent drainage, artificial turf for dogs is actually a safer and cleaner option than grass. You won’t have to worry about urine or feces seeping into the soil, and you won’t have to deal with stepping in a mess while playing in your yard. Simply wash all of the mess away, and enjoy a beautiful yard all year long.
