Owning a dog in Detroit and all of Michigan doesn’t mean you have to give up your dream of having a bright, green lawn. You just need the right type of lawn. Artificial grass resists a number of canine activities known to plague pet owners.

  • Brown spots: Your pet’s urine has a high nitrogen content and pH level, which has a tendency to burn grass and leave unpleasant brown spots. With artificial turf, you don’t have to put up with a spotted yard any longer since synthetic turf fibers are not prone to discoloration when they come in contact with pet waste.
  • Care: The completely permeable, nonabsorbent lining of synthetic grass allows it to drain much cleaner and more efficiently than real grass. That means it’s possible to clean spills and pet waste by simply washing the area with a water hose. Artificial grass is inorganic, so it does not require water to sustain a green, rich appearance all year round. It also never needs to be cut.
  • Messes: Eliminating constant watering and mowing also means your dog will never carry in mud or grass clippings from your yard. Therefore, an effortlessly clean backyard also maintains a spotless house.
  • Digging: Unlike natural grass with separate blades growing from the dirt, synthetic grass has a lining that holds all the fibers in place. This discouraged your pet from digging in the backyard and ruining your landscaping.
  • Pests: The naturally antimicrobial and hypoallergenic surface of artificial grass means that ants, ticks and fleas aren’t interested in living in your backyard. No pests in the yard, no pests for your dog to carry inside your home.
