Cleaning pet 'spills' from artificial grass
All the PermaLawn grasses are suitable for dogs and cats and are easy to keep clean. Once solid waste has been collected, even the worst 'spills' can be easily and quickly removed with a mild detergent and water mix - a mild, non-bleach containing mixture is best to avoid damaging the lawn surface.
As long as you make sure you clean any mess up quickly, there should be no lasting damage to the artificial lawn. Use soft brushes or cloths across the area and avoid scrubbers or hard plastic scoops.
Artificial lawn can be better for pets than natural grass
Often natural lawns need to be fed and treated with chemical products, such as weed killer. Such chemicals can be hazardous to cats and dogs and other pets. Artificial grasses require no chemical-based products at all during maintenance and care, making them much safer in that respect for your domestic pets.
Sometimes, pet spills and play can damage natural grass, creating bare patches in the lawn or other damage. Artificial surfaces are much more hard-wearing and less susceptible to damage created by hard play, especially with bigger dogs who can easily tear up real grass.
What to think about when choosing artificial lawn types if you have pets
PermaLawn carry a wide range of artificial lawn types of differing lengths and quality. We can provide a bowling green or golf course quality yarn that is tightly woven and short, or a natural-looking matting that is hard to tell from natural grass.
You know your pets and can select an artificial grass type that perfectly suits your needs. With wide-ranging choice at great prices, the assurance that all types will be fine for your non-grass munching pets like cats and dogs and a project planner to help you set out your plans for your lawn, PermaLawn is the perfect place to shop for your new artificial grass.
