Synthetic Grass and Pets- They Go Together Like Peanut Butter and Jelly

What pet doesn’t love to play on the grass? Dogs and cats certainly do. And even family pets such as bunnies and guinea pigs would give anything to have some time on the free range. Supervised, of course. The problem is, pets and natural grass aren’t necessarily as compatible as you might think.

In many ways your lawn and your pets are more like natural foes than friends. Your lawn can present unseen dangers for animals. And your dog, at least, can wreak havoc on the grass. Happily, there is a simple solution to this dilemma that is a proven crowd-pleaser. For humans as well as pets.

Artificial turf and pets are very compatible

In fact, here at Pacific Grass & Turf we carry specific varieties of artificial grass that have been specifically formulated for pets. This artificial turf can transform your yard and pet play areas into a lush, verdant lawn that looks and performs beautifully, year round.

For one thing, synthetic turf drains much better than traditional, natural grass. Even in wet weather, your pets will have a fluffy play surface.

No fuss

As the human side of the family, you love the fact that artificial grass is nearly maintenance-free. You can spend more quality one-on-one time with your pets instead of shooing them away so you can mow, edge, fertilize, dig weeds, spray for bugs, water, and so on. And with all the money you save on all that former lawn maintenance, you’ll have more cash to spend on trendy pet treats and gifts. Woof!

No muss

It doesn’t take long for most natural grass lawns to develop depressions and other surface anomalies that collect water when you water or it rains. Furthermore, despite your efforts to train pets to potty in a specific place, they may gravitate toward your lawn. The result can be brown spots, dead areas, and other damage that turns your natural grass into mud zones in wet conditions. That leads to a mess of muddy paw prints around your doors – and on into your house, unless you’re vigilant.

At Pacific Grass & Turf, we sell only superior quality artificial grass. And we use our own highly-trained and experienced crews to install every project. Along with our pet-friendly synthetic grass system, you get a lawn that’s free of puddles, mud, and messy debris. You can smile as you watch your pets (and kids, too) playing outdoors on the grass, rather than gritting your teeth about the impending clean-up.

Foiled, finally

You love your pets, but you really want to grit your teeth when you notice that – for the 348th time – your pup has dug yet another hole in the lawn. Grrrrr. To be fair, while we tend to point our fingers at our dogs when we find holes and other grass damage, cats can be just as destructive.

Artificial turf may look like just another pretty face to the uninitiated. But Pacific Grass & Turf synthetic grass is one tough customer. Dig-proof. Even when faced with the most determined pets.

Healthier outdoor play

Our artificial turf arrives without built-in allergens or toxins. There’s never a need to apply any dangerous chemicals, either. Your pets get a clean, safe surface where they can jump and roll to their heart’s’ content. What could be more amazing than that?

When you choose artificial grass you get more than just the turf grass itself. It’s a complete landscape system. The artificial grass system includes preparation of the ground the artificial grass will be installed on, the drainage through the artificial grass backing, the infill material used to keep the artificial grass blades erect and provide ballast, and the yarn that create the “fake-grass” blades. We install Global Syn-Turf artificial grass for residential landscapes that matches the look and feel of real grass. Artificial grass requires little to no maintenance. Keep your residence looking pristine with artificial grass landscaping from Pacific Grass & Turf, your artificial turf company in Sacramento.
