If you’re interested in creating a better home for your pets, consider the benefits of artificial grass landscaping for pets. In addition to look beautiful, artificial grass doesn’t require the same time and attention as natural grass, so you can rest assured it will look great all year.
And that’s just the beginning!
Let’s take a closer look at how artificial grass can provide a great place for your pet to play, explore, and relieve themselves in comfort.
Artificial Grass Landscaping for Pets Saves You Money
Let’s talk about savings.
As a homeowner with the responsibility of caring for a pet, you’re probably interested in finding ways to provide your pet a good life while also saving money. You don’t want to skimp on their care, but you don’t want to spend money you shouldn’t.
This is where artificial grass landscaping can help.
Unlike natural grass, artificial landscaping for pets doesn’t require the same amount of maintenance. All of that money you spend on mowing, trimming, and fertilizing your natural lawn can add up really quick – especially if you’re in an arid area and your landscaping requires a bit more attention than others. Artificial landscaping doesn’t need any of that.
And that doesn’t even include water, which has been recorded as the most expensive source of water usage in arid areas.
Reduce Your Water Bill Without Sacrificing Your Yard
If you’re like most homeowners, you want to reduce any bill possible.
This provides more for your beloved pet!
Cutting back on the water usage is a great way to achieve this, and artificial landscaping for pets enables it. Unlike natural grass, artificial grass doesn’t need constant watering to remain healthy. It’s artificial. All it needs is an occasional rinse to clear waste and debris.
This gives you the opportunity to save money without letting your lawn become unhealthy and undesirable for your pet. If you stop tending to your natural lawn, there’s a good chance it will be overrun by weeds and native plants, which in turn can attract rodents, ticks, and fleas.
Not good for your pets.
Ugly Spots and Digging Aren’t A Problem
The most common household pets are dogs and cats.
Both of these four-legged pets enjoy spending time outdoors where they can explore, relax, and relieve themselves in private. However, unless you’ve set up a designated area in your yard and trained your pet to use it, animal waste can result in brown and yellow spots in a natural grass lawn.
If unaddressed, this will eventually kill the grass and leave bare spots throughout your yard.
Dogs and cats also enjoy digging in the dirt. Bury a bone, dig an escape hole, scratch out a lounging spot, etc., eventually making your yard look like a war zone.
A yard covered with artificial grass will always be green no matter how many times pets relieve themselves and mark their territory on it. Holes will also be a thing of the past because artificial turf is strong, durable and very difficult to scratch a hole through.
Your pets will stay cleaner when their outdoor area is covered with artificial grass.
The superior drainage of the artificial product allows urine to quickly drain away so your pet won’t be walking or rolling in it. Rain water will also quickly drain away and since there is no accessible dirt with holes dug in it, that means there won’t be any tempting mud holes after a rain.
Paws and fur stay cleaner and the environment as a whole is more sanitary than a yard covered with natural grass.
This goes for you as well – you don’t have to worry about tracking dirt into the house.
Artificial Landscaping for Pets Is Environmentally Friendly
Artificial grass requires no water, no chemicals and no power lawn equipment to keep it looking good.
This provides the environment, and your pet, a much safer surface area for your landscaping needs. Pesticides and herbicides can be very dangerous for those who come in contact, including pets and their owners. And it’s easier than you may think to ingest poisonous chemicals – if your pet so much as walks on natural grass treated with harmful chemicals, you can bet those chemicals are making their way into your house.
The most common way pets ingest poisonous chemicals is by self-grooming – it’s natural for them to lick their paws, and it’s proven deadly in many cases.
The ground-cover product also eliminates pet odors, reduces the number of fleas and ticks which typically live in soil and vegetation until a four-legged meal ticket walks by, and reduces the number of rats and moles which like to have the run of a grassy yard.
If you’re looking for a way to cut costs without sacrificing one of your pet’s favorite places, consider the benefits of installing artificial landscaping for pets.
In addition to providing your household new savings and reduced responsibilities, artificial lawn can protect the value of your home, prevent pests from endangering your loved ones, and look beautiful all year.
