How Does Artificial Pet Turf Help Prevent Lawn Damage?

September 27, 2023

If you have dogs at home, you probably feel like you’re stuck in an endless battle with your lawn. Between dead patches from pet urine and holes from doggy digging, it can be virtually impossible to maintain your natural grass.

That’s why thousands of pet owners are opting for a pet-friendly synthetic grass installation for their Bay Area home or business. Artificial turf has numerous benefits for pets and owners alike, so you can rest assured that your pup is having a great time on the soft, cushioned artificial grass while these three major sources of lawn damage are being solved by your new landscaping solution.

Eliminates Brown Spots

One of the biggest drawbacks of natural grass is that it is easily damaged by dogs using it as a bathroom. Dog urine is very high in nitrogen, which can permanently damage natural grass by burning out the roots and polluting the soil. This creates dead, burnt spots where the grass will always be brown and unsightly, and this can only be removed by replacing the soil bed itself.

Synthetic grass, on the other hand, has no soil and can easily withstand high levels of nitrogen, so your pet turf will continue to look fresh and green no matter how often your dogs relieve themselves on it. Moreover, since synthetic turf is nonporous, pet urine doesn’t absorb into the material and instead passes through the drainage grid and into the ground, eliminating the risk of brown spots and foul odors and keeping your lawn looking beautiful year-round.

Avoids Bald Patches

Another common issue that dog owners face is bald patches in their natural grass lawns. This can be caused by constant running and playing on the grass, causing it to wear down over time, but the most common cause is digging. Dogs love to dig, and in addition to making your lawn look patchy, digging lets dogs track dirt and mud into the house, creating a maintenance nightmare indoors and out.

Synthetic grass, however, is woven with durable polyethylene fibers and a resilient polyurethane backing that can resist any attempts to dig through it. The synthetic material used to make the turf blades is resistant to heavy traffic and wear and tear from pets, and SGW’s triple-reinforced tuft bind technology ensures that each blade of grass can withstand thousands of pounds of pull force. This makes it extremely difficult, if not impossible, for pets to dig through or pull out the turf blades. This enhanced durability and reinforcement prevent bald patches from forming and keep your lawn looking lush and pristine 365 days a year.

Prevents Pet Odors

Your lawn is where your pet does their business each day, so it’s to be expected that your natural grass lawn will experience foul odors from pet waste over time. Even when you clean up after them promptly, pet waste odors can not only make your backyard an unpleasant place to spend time, but it can even pose a health and safety risk to your guests and family members.

Artificial turf, on the other hand, is installed with an ultra-efficient drainage system that flushes away liquids and makes clean-up even easier and more thorough. Since pet urine is so efficiently drained away, it prevents any unpleasant odors from lingering on your lawn. You can even enhance your pet turf installation with products such as antimicrobial infill and turf deodorizer to further eliminate odors and keep your synthetic grass lawn safe and sanitary year-round.
