Owning a dog in Pittsburgh doesn’t mean you must give up your dream of having a bright, green lawn. You just need the right type of lawn. Artificial turf combats a number of canine activities that commonly plague pet owners.

  • Brown spots: Your pet’s urine has a high nitrogen content and pH level, which tends to burn grass and leave unattractive brown spots. With artificial turf, you don’t have to tolerate a spotted yard any longer since synthetic grass fibers are not susceptible to discoloration when they come in contact with pet waste.
  • Upkeep: The completely permeable, nonabsorbent backing of synthetic grass allows it to drain better and cleaner than real grass. That makes it possible to clean spills and pet waste by simply rinsing the area with a water hose. Artificial grass is inorganic, so it does not need water to sustain a green, vibrant appearance all year round. It also never needs to be cut.
  • Messes: Eliminating heavy watering and mowing also means your dog will never carry in mud or grass clippings from your yard. Therefore, an effortlessly clean yard also promotes a spotless house.
  • Digging: Unlike natural grass with single blades sprouting from the soil, synthetic turf has a lining that holds all the fibers in place. This discouraged your pet from digging in the backyard and ruining your yard.
  • Pests: The inherently antimicrobial and hypoallergenic surface of synthetic grass means that fleas, ants, and ticks are not interested in living in your lawn. No pests in the yard, no pests for your dog to bring inside your home.
