How is the urine and waste handled?
Synthetic grass is not much different from natural grass. Urine washes through the Drainage holes into crushed stone sub-base below. Faeces can be removed using your current process, only it tends to be less messy with an artificial grass and you can hose down if required afterwards without worrying about causing a mud bath.
How do you clean synthetic grass?
Rain is usually sufficient. If necessary, spray your synthetic lawn with a hose. This can be done without the worry of causing a mud bath.
Can you get rid of pet odours?
Yes. Having a good drainage system and using a natural non-absorbent infill minimizes pet odours but deodorising sprays and eco-friendly detergents can be used periodically if required.
Will my dog think it’s real grass?
Dogs undeniably love artificial grass. We have many happy customers who are delighted with their artificial grass for pets and many have sent in photographs of their dogs and pets enjoying their new lawn.
Will my dog try to dig a hole through the synthetic grass?
There is no denying that some dogs will try and dig through anything but our recommended artificial grass for pets is extremely durable with a double dura backing system which makes it almost impossible to tear. If you know your dog is likely to try to attempt to dig holes we recommend that you take extra care in securing the perimeter of your new synthetic lawn as this will discourage dogs from trying to pull it up.
1, As Good as the Real Thing
Modern Artificial Grass is so advanced that often people cannot even tell it is not a natural lawn. Our range of grasses are specially selected for their incredible quality and realistic nature, and feature a variation of different colour tones, and thickness so you can choose the one that is perfect for your garden.
2, Looks Great all year round
Weeds ruin your lawn’s appearance, and some may be harmful to dogs and pets. Installing an artificial lawn for dogs prevents harmful weeds from growing in your lawn, keeping your dog protected as it ventures outdoors. You can also enjoy your lawn free from dog wear and tear, dead and bald patches, stains, and smells. Pets will gladly ‘do their business’ on it and the urine will drain through. What’s more, the artificial grass fibres will remain completely undamaged.
3, No More Harmful Chemicals
Maintaining a natural lawn can take a lot of time and effort. You can spend also spend considerable amounts of money on fertilisers, pest control, insecticides and weed killers. These products contain toxic chemicals that can potentially harm you or your pet. As your dog or cat rolls around on the natural lawn the chemical ingredients can stick to their coat or fur and get into their nasal passages.
4, Low Maintenance
Artificial grass does not require any regular maintenance or products like a natural lawn to keep it looking neat and tidy all year round, a quick brush up now and then is all that is needed, so you will have more time to get outside and enjoy your garden with your pets.
5, No Muddy Mess
Dogs love rolling around on the lawn after it rains, this results in them getting covered in mud which then finds its way back into the house and onto the carpets and furniture. Artificial grass has drainage holes and combined with good drainage stone underneath an artificial lawn can dry very quickly after a down pour of rain. This eliminates the possibility of mud forming on the lawn and subsequently muddy foot prints appearing in the home.
And Finally, they just Love it!
Dogs especially adapt to artificial grass very quickly, we have many customers that would highly recommend it, for the dog it is like a big play area! It feels super soft underfoot but with its double layer dura back its tough enough to stand up to pets running around playing on it, not only all day long but all year round because no matter what the weather your pets will be able to get outside in the garden where they are happy.

Is Artificial Grass suitable for children?
Our artificial grass is a perfect addition to your family garden. With little upkeep in comparison to real grass, you will be able to spend more time with your loved ones and enjoy having a beautiful garden all year round. A simple hose down as opposed to the constant mowing, hosing and weeding is all that is necessary to maintain your artificial lawn.
Many family homes, nurseries and play areas for are switching to artificial grass due to the number of benefits with doing so. It is important to note, that we recommend shock pad underlay if installing artificial grass to a play area so that it meets critical fall height standards to provide safety for any tumbles or falls. With a drainage system underneath, artificial lawn can take 15 minutes to dry after a downpour of rain, a fraction of the time a natural lawn would take to dry, and without the water logging and mud patches which can unquestionably be both a hazard and a hinderance to your day. Children will be able to play outdoors to their hearts content without you having the panicking feeling of how muddy they get or whether they fall over and injure themselves or get grass stains on their clothing.
Our artificial grass has been designed to be durable and long lasting and we are so confident in your artificial lawn withstanding the test of time, we offer up to a 10-year guarantee on our products, with some of our products having a life expectancy of up to 20 years.
Whilst your children are undoubtedly not going to notice the difference between artificial lawn and real grass, you can be rest assured that you will reap the benefits and rewards from making the change. Real lawn can pose health risks as bacteria often lives on the surface of natural grass. Alongside with this, allergens will not be an issue in a garden with synthetic grass installed, the hay fever sniffles will no longer prevent your family from enjoying the warm summer days.
