If you have pets running around your Dallas home, you know how difficult it can be to maintain a healthy lawn as a pet owner. From brown patches to mud holes, there’s a vast array of problems that can harm either your lawn or your pet. However, with pet-safe artificial grass landscaping, you can keep your lawn evergreen while keeping your pet happy and healthy. Here are a few of the pet products we advise incorporating in your artificial grass installation in order to keep your yard looking beautiful year-round.
Efficient drainage is an essential part of synthetic turf installation, especially where pets are involved. Having an advanced drainage system incorporated into your installation will not only ensure that your artificial grass remains dry, but it will also keep your turf clean and odor-free where pet waste is concerned. Drain Core drainage systems are cellular ½-inch polyethylene drainage mats installed underneath the pet turf. They can collect and transport up to 16 gallons of water per minute, so your turf can stand up to any weather or pet waste problem. The efficient drainage of these liquids, such as dog urine, will both extend your synthetic turf’s lifespan and help keep your yard clean and sanitary.
Zeolite Max is an all-natural grass deodorizer. It’s an organic infill that helps eliminate pet odors while simultaneously cooling your synthetic grass fibers for added comfort. Zeolite Max absorbs bacteria found in animal urine and prevents ammonia from turning into a gas, which in turn prevents it from creating an odor. Installing Zeolite Max on top of and within the artificial grass fibers will give you the best results.
Durafill is a non-absorbent, antimicrobial infill that can withstand harsh elements such as pet urine to keep your artificial grass looking as good as new. Durafill’s antimicrobial properties stop the growth of spores and harmful bacteria, which protects your artificial grass from stains, odors, and deterioration. With no zinc, lead, heavy metals, or other harsh irritants, it’s a completely safe solution for homes with pets or children.
Pet Fresh is an as-needed organic spray concentrate that eliminates pet odors quickly. You can spray it as needed over your artificial grass to eliminate odors and keep your turf sanitized and smelling fresh. The environmentally-friendly formula is safe for pets and kids, so you don’t need to worry about harmful chemicals damaging your new artificial grass lawn. Keep it looking clean and smelling fresh all year long.
From one-time installation products like Drain Core and Zeolite Max to as-needed upkeep accessories like Pet Fresh, there are many products available to keep your artificial grass in top condition.
