Let’s be honest, when it comes to our furry-friends, you want to make sure that they always have the best. A lot of chatter about artificial grass is focused on how it’s money saving, time saving and good for kids, but what about the other members of our family who will be spending their time in the garden? At Grass Centre, we want to make sure that our artificial grass passes the ‘paw test’. Is it soft enough for those all-important rollovers, will it withstand the claws of a stretching cat? If you’re considering making the switch to artificial grass for your pet, here are just some of the benefits you will all enjoy.
- They won’t know the difference
The best thing about artificial grass is that it’s designed to offer the look and feel of a natural lawn at it’s best. While real grass will soon wear down and show the signs of an over-excited play time, artificial grass offers all of the benefits without the need to maintain it. Dogs and cats love the feeling of soft artificial grass and will adapt to it very quickly. Plus, without the need to feed or fertilise the grass you can also rest safe in the knowledge that no harmful toxins will find their way on to their fur.
- It’s easy to clean
Any pet owner will know that a lot of time is spent cleaning up after your four legged friend! Long grass in particular is a nightmare when your pet decides to ‘do it’s business’ and you’re then faced with having to clean the area to avoid it being tracked into the home. Short pile artificial grass is a pet owner’s best friend. With the look of a freshly cut lawn, you can enjoy the practical benefits of simply having to pick up the mess and hose the area down if needed.
- Perfect for little legs
Sometimes the sight of overgrown grass or a vast outdoor expanse can be too much for little dogs. If your four-legged friend is small in stature, you want to ensure that they have a space to play that suits their needs. Short, artificial grass creates a flat play area for dogs and will encourage nervous pups to step outside to exercise and do their business.
- It will withstand all routines
Pet’s are very much creatures of habit. Cats will want to find that perfect spot to bask in the sun, while dogs might want to play in the same space with their favourite toy. With real grass, these spots will start to show signs of wear very quickly, especially if your pets love to dig. By switching to artificial grass you can stay on top of their routine by simply giving these spots an extra brush or clean to bring them back to life. Our artificial grass is also made with a hard backing that’s designed to withstand even the most energetic of digging!
Keep your pets happy, healthy and safe by switching to artificial grass in your outdoor space. Many of our artificial grass products are designed to be extra pet-friendly, so look for the paw print seal of approval when you’re searching for your perfect match.
