Why Pet Owners Across Alberta are Falling in Love with Artificial Grass

If you own a pet, you are likely familiar with the significant havoc they can wreak on your natural lawn, but what about artificial grass? A synthetic lawn is a fantastic alternative to real grass, and it truly is the perfect choice for pets. If you haven't yet considered making the switch, allow us to explain why you should. Call us for a free consultation!

Durable and Long-Lasting

Dogs and even cats can cause serious damage to natural grass, thanks to digging, chewing, and leaving waste behind. Holes, bare spots, and yellowed areas can quickly destroy the appearance of a natural lawn. Fortunately, you won't have to worry about any of these common problems with artificial grass.

Synthetic grass is designed to withstand rips and tears, no matter how much your pet tries to dig. The fibers also don't really taste like much of anything, so there is no incentive for chewing. Finally, artificial grass won't yellow or stain, even if your pet leaves messy, runny waste on it. To clean it up, simply rinse away with a hose, or use a mild soap and water solution for stubborn spots.

Pest-Free and Non-Toxic

Natural grass can be home to a variety of lawn pests, which your pet can then bring into your home on their fur or paws. With artificial grass, on the other hand, there is no need to concern yourself with pests, as the turf materials don't provide a hospitable environment for them and don't attract them in the first place. This makes your yard more comfortable and enjoyable for both you and your pets.

Because you won't have any pests in your artificial lawn, you won't have to apply any pesticides either. Even the gentlest pest repellants still have harmful chemicals in them, which could pose a risk to your loved ones and pets. With no pests, there is no need for pesticides, and thus, no risk to you.

No Mess in Inclement Weather

Here in Alberta, we see plenty of snow and rain throughout the year. These weather conditions can leave your yard soggy and muddy. When you let your pet outside to do their business and get some fresh air, they can then track that mud back into your home, creating more cleaning work for you.

Artificial grass is designed to drain quickly, so it won't stay wet for long, even after a heavy rain. No matter what the weather does, you'll never have to contend with mud either. Say goodbye to having piles of muddy towels by the back door to clean your pet's paws before coming back inside!

Give Your Pet a Lawn They'll Love

These are just a few of the many benefits of choosing artificial grass for homes with pets. We would love to discuss the perks of synthetic lawns with you in greater detail, so don't be shy about reaching out to our team for a free consultation.
