FAQ – Your Pet and Artificial Grass

By March 18, 2020January 4th, 2022Blog

Artificial grass is a low maintenance, pet friendly solution to a lush, green garden that can withstand wind, rain, snow, and Rex!  Here are the most commonly asked questions our customers with pets ask us about our artificial grass – and their answers of course!

Q: Is artificial grass safe for my pet?

A: Absolutely! Our artificial grass is made from a combination of nylon, polyethylene and polypropylene, which is pet (and child!) friendly. With no need for fertiliser or harmful weed killer, you can rest assured that your pet is safe in your garden.

Q: Can my pet damage the grass?

A: We design our artificial grass to be highly durable, so it can cope with even the most energetic of animals. What’s more, pets are less likely to dig up or kick at artificial grass as there is no soil underneath for them to get at. This means that you will have a pristine lawn all year round.

Q: Will pet faeces and urine stain my artificial grass?

A: Many of our customers come to us looking for artificial grass as their pets have ruined their natural lawn. One fantastic aspect of grass is that urine and faeces do not kill the lawn off, or leave stains, even after prolonged exposure.

Q: Will my pet hate artificial grass?

A: Definitely not! Our artificial grass is comfortable and springy – the perfect area for your pet to play and relax! In our experience, animals love our artificial grass and soon find a comfortable spot to call their own.

Q: How do I care for my artificial lawn?

A: One of the many advantages of artificial lawns is that they are low maintenance. They do not need mowing, feeding, or much weeding, which leaves you free to enjoy your garden instead.

We know that pets can be messy, but artificial lawns make cleaning up after your pet much easier. Urine drains through the perforations in the lawn rather than pooling at the top, so no mopping up after they’ve been to the toilet, and the short pile height makes picking faeces up clean and easy. The only maintenance we recommend is hosing down areas your pet may favour to prevent any unpleasant smells from building up. We also recommend picking up faeces as soon as possible to avoid them getting trodden into the lawn.

Q: Which artificial turf is most suitable for my pet?

A: The short answer to this question is: all of them! No matter your budget, you can find a lawn that is pet friendly at New Lawn. Check out our different ranges of artificial grass that we supply and install here.
