We have them in our homes and they are as much a part of the family as everyone else. We absolutely adore them and wouldn’t want to imagine a day without them. Pets are undoubtedly nothing short of a great addition to any home.
Household pets are just the best but for owners with particularly busy lifestyles, and I would imagine that includes just about everyone, giving them dedicated attention at all times is too challenging. An artificial grass installation can help ease the work that goes into taking care of the pets and make it a little less challenging in several ways.
Easy to clean Pet Areas
Artificial grass dog runs are quite easy to clean. You can train the dogs to use a specific spot on the yard and make arrangements for regular cleaning. Feces are easy to pick up and hosing down the run can help clean way the urine. To remove all odors from the area, you should use some mild detergent or water-white vinegar regularly.
Dogs can become quite the nuisance when outside. Before my artificial grass installation or what I now call “ B.S” for “before synthetic, ” I had to spend so much time re-seeding and doing all else after my two dogs made a competition of who can leave behind the most bare spots out back in the yard. Definitely so much you can do with that amount of time, right? With artificial grass, you get to choose exactly what to do with that time as it totally frees you up since it requires very little in maintenance, save for the cleaning and a regular brushing.
Perfect surface for Play and Rest
When they are not busy trying to tear into the turf, albeit in vain, pets quite like the feel of artificial grass and can spend hours on end just having some fun of their own. Similarly, the arrangement of the individual grass blades is such that the final product provides a luxuriously soft and comfortable surface that the pets will enjoy resting on.
Your pets’ Health
A few years back, I had a dog that would always have a running nose and teary eyes whenever it was out playing in the backyard. It was so baffling because I always ensured its pet area was kept clean at all times and had plenty of clean water. I couldn’t understand what was making him so sickly and had to take him to the vet’s. the final diagnosis; my dog had grass allergy.
In ignorance, you may have assumed that hay fever is only for humans, but it also affects pets, bringing in its wake some devastating symptoms. In addition, the use of chemicals for lawn maintenance as on natural turf may expose your pest to some toxins. That is not to mention the fact that ineffective pest control can also affect your pets’ health. Artificial grass means no pests and therefore no need for chemicals in a pest-control effort.
Making the switch to artificial grass for pets not only saves you time in cleaning and maintenance, but also saves you money that would otherwise be spent on frequent visits to the veterinarian. You can also look to a happier pet that enjoys his surroundings. If the pets are happy, then so are you, which is all the more reason to make the switch.
