5 Reasons Artificial Grass Is Great For Pets

“Is artificial grass pet friendly?”

This is one of the most frequently asked questions we hear from our customers. The answer is a resounding YES.

In fact, artificial grass can be a better solution for homes with pets than traditional lawns. Here are five reasons why you should get artificial grass for your garden!

It’s 100% Safe

Naturally, you wouldn’t want to introduce anything into your garden that might cause your pet to become ill. All the materials that go into making Newlawn artificial grass are completely safe for both animals and humans alike.  In fact, most of the materials we use are commonly utilised in food packaging that you use every day.

What’s more, artificial grass eliminates the need for you to use any harmful chemicals, such as fertiliser, that may pose a threat to animals. That means you and your furry friend can enjoy your garden without worrying about a trip to the vet!

No Mess!

Sick of cleaning up muddy paw prints off your carpet? Artificial grass is the way to go!

We’ve all felt the pain of letting our pet into the garden after a downpour only for them to roll energetically in the mud. With artificial grass, you’ll never have this problem again.

All Newlawn artificial grass is designed and installed to efficiently drain away rainwater, ensuring it does not sit on top of the grass. Our lawns dry quickly and have no soil underneath for your pet to get to, so there’s less chance of them getting dirty after being out in the garden, rain or shine!

A Healthy Lawn All Year Round

Our artificial grass is colourfast and UV resistant, so you can be sure your lush-looking lawn won’t fade over time. Not only that, you’ll never have to worry about watering your lawn or looking out at a dry (or dead!) lawn during the drier months.

Another great benefit of artificial grass is that it doesn’t get stained by animal faeces or urine. Like rain, urine drains through the perforated holes in the grass without staining your lawn. As for faeces, the short pile height means it is easily picked up and disposed of; all that you need to do is give the area a quick once over with the hose to prevent any unpleasant smells over time.

It’s Tough

Animals love a bit of rough and tumble and with artificial grass you can be sure your lawn won’t be ruined by a boisterous pet.

The make-up of artificial grass is completely different to that of real turf, which means animals aren’t likely to try and dig it up in a bid to find treasure! Not only that but, due to our design, blades of grass cannot be pulled up or knocked out by energetic play, which means your lawn never looks patchy or bare.

Pets Love It
