However, one question lingers–how will my pet react to the artificial turf designed for pets and dogs in the Las Vegas weather? Do not worry; artificial pet turf is safe and provides a perfect environment for your favorite animal to enjoy.
In this blog post, we explore five frequently asked questions about artificial pet turf in Las Vegas.
How is Artificial Turf Affected by Pet Urine?
Unlike natural grass, artificial turf cannot be stained by pet urine. The turf is built with excellent drainage qualities which ensure the urine does not pool on the surface of the turf and just like rainwater, it drains away quite fast.
So say goodbye to yellow stains and dead spots in your beautiful backyard due to pet waste. All you need to do is wash with a garden hose occasionally and your turf looks good as new.
How Durable Is Synthetic Pet Turf?
Artificial turf has been carefully designed to last a long time and stand up to rough play by dogs. It is common for pets to dig when urinating and this can severely damage natural turf. Thankfully, artificial turf is highly resilient and is built to withstand digging.
Furthermore, it is designed to survive foot traffic from pets and children alike (learn more about our playground turf for kids). You won’t have to worry about pet wear and tear with synthetic grass.
Even after years of exposure to the outdoors, the pet grass will remain lush and colorful. What’s more, unlike ordinary grass, it doesn’t require constant watering, trimming, and mowing which saves you money on maintenance and water, which also makes our synthetic grass very eco-friendly.
Artificial grass will withstand high foot/paw traffic, prevent animals from digging, and won’t be covered in brown pee marks if you buy a quality product built with pets in mind.
How Safe Is It for Pets?
Synthetic turf is safe for pets, according to an assessment by the Department of Public Health (DPH), the Connecticut Department of Environment Protection (DEP), and the University of Connecticut Health Centre (UCHC).
The development of manufacturing technology has eliminated existing risks such as lead and other toxic chemicals. When buying artificial grass, please avoid latex-backed grass. Pet urine crystallizes on the grass, forming deadly ammonia pockets that are dangerous to pets.
Will Dog Turf Stop Muddy Paw Prints?
Natural grass lawns turn into mud baths during the monsoon season in Las Vegas, which our pets seem to enjoy rolling about in! Mud may be a lot of fun for your four-legged companion, but it’s not so much fun for you or your clean home.
Artificial turf for pets helps keep dirt and mud out of your house no matter what the weather is like outside.
Your pets can play as hard as they want without getting unattractive grass or mud on their paws. You might be concerned if your pet enjoys digging, but the durable, double-coated synthetic backing prevents pets from burrowing through the artificial turf.
How Do You Maintain Artificial Turf for Pets?
When it comes to pet droppings, artificial grass installed by SYNLawn Las Vegas is simple to clean. Scoop the droppings up as you would regular grass, then rinse off the lawn with a garden hose. While artificial grass is designed to provide exceptional drainage, lingering urine odors can be a problem. That is because like other stainless synthetic household surfaces, artificial grass can collect scents that are difficult to detect and eradicate. But ordinarily, these can be washed and hosed off easily with equal amounts of vinegar and water.
