When it comes to installing artificial lawn one of the most significant questions, we get asked if it is suitable for pets? The answer is yes! Turf options available are highly durable with sealed joints making it unlikely that dogs will be able to dig holes.
Below we’ve listed some maintenance tips for looking after your synthetic turf with pets.
Removing Pet Waste from Your Artificial Lawn
If you’ve got pets and are considering installing a fake lawn, the clean-up process may prove to be a concern. You can rest assured that synthetic turf is perfectly suitable for households with dogs and cats, with a little extra maintenance.
When it comes to removing pet droppings just clean up as you usually would and finish off with a spray of water from the hose. Be sure to give the area a regular rinse down to eliminate any odours quickly and efficiently.
Where the Termiturf is subjected to heavy use by animals, products are available to reduce odour such as a turf deodoriser. By using a turf deodoriser, you can keep your turf clean and odour free quite simply.
No Need to Worry About Prickles in Fur Coats
Artificial lawn eliminates the worry of having to pick out prickles and grass seeds from your pet’s fur. In turn, potentially reducing the amount of time and money spent at the pet groomers.
No Need For Fertilisers Or Pesticides
To keep your natural lawn looking its best, it takes a fair amount of fertilisers and pesticides. When your pets play on your lawn, they will come in contact with those harmful chemicals which can even result in them becoming ill.
An artificial lawn doesn’t require any harsh substances, meaning it is 100% safe for your pets providing you with peace of mind.
