Artificial Turf For Pets! Guide for choosing the best artificial grass for pets.

Calhoun, GA - Pet-Friendly Artificial Grass

Owning a dog doesn’t mean you need to give up your dream of having a lush, green lawn. You just have to get the right type of lawn. Artificial turf will solve common complaints such as:

Brown Spots
Pet urine has a high nitrogen load and pH level, burning grass and leaving brown spots. With artificial grass, you won’t have a spotted yard anymore. Synthetic turf fibers won’t become discolored when they come in contact with pet waste, either.

Unlike natural grass with individual blades growing from the soil, artificial turf has a backing that holds all the fibers together. This deters your furry friend from digging in the backyard and ruining your perfectly manicured lawn.

The inherently antimicrobial and hypoallergenic surface of artificial turf means that ants, ticks, and fleas aren’t interested in living in your yard — no pests in the yard, no pests for your dog to bring inside your home.

The completely permeable, nonabsorbent backing of artificial grass allows it to drain better and cleaner than natural grass. You can clean spills and pet waste by rinsing the area with a water hose. Since artificial grass is inorganic, it does not require water to sustain a green, lush appearance all year round. It also never needs to be cut.

Eliminating heavy watering and mowing also means your dog will never track in mud or grass clippings from your yard. In this way, an effortlessly clean yard also promotes a spotless house.
Why Synthetic Over Natural Grass?

Shawgrass turf is permeable and installed over a highly compacted subbase. When your pet uses the bathroom on the surface, it first contacts the top layer (fiber and infill). Coated infill and water-resistant fibers resist the absorption of fluid. This allows bacteria and waste to wash through the turf naturally.

In addition to making pet ownership easier, synthetic grass extends extra benefits to barefooted loved ones, too. Here are just a few more reasons you’ll love artificial turf.

Safe & Non-toxic
Our fibers and infill are crafted by experts that last a lifetime and are completely safe for puppy paws and baby feet.
