Dogs love our turf too! Ruff-Ruff!

A common question amongst our customers is whether artificial grass is suitable for pets, especially dogs. Purchase-Green is always confident to answer, YES! Dogs love our grass. Dog lovers make up the majority of our customers! If you are debating a synthetic grass installation, here are some of the benefits for pet owners:
1. No more muddy paws and mess being tracked into your house!
2. No more dead patches of grass!
3. Hygienic. Urine will wash through the artificial grass just like normal grass. Solid waste will need to be scooped up and disposed of. If you are worried about odors and general cleanliness we can recommend our Artificial Grass Disinfectant, it can be attached to your hose to provide you with perfect water to disinfectant ratio (to be applied 2 times a month or more depending on traffic level).
4. Digging! Gigantic holes in the middle of your lawn are not pleasing to the eye. Dogs usually dig because of odors from the within the ground or to bury things. With artificial grass, the odors are minimized and even if your dog tried to dig, he would soon realize that Purchase-Green’s artificial grass’s backing is too strong for even his puppy paws! Think about how artificial grass is designed to withstand the wear and tear of 300 pound men in cleats playing football and then you can appreciate how strong it is.
5. Artificial grass installed with any of our infill is always nontoxic – important when considering your dog or other pets. The artificial grass is generally anti-microbial so microorganisms and bacteria find it difficult to establish themselves. Generally it is a more hygienic environment. Purchase-Green’s infill also helps the grass look better and last longer.
6. Artificial grass is not attractive to insects – they can’t eat it! In fact, there is no organic matter for them so they move on to the next yard. Ticks and fleas tend to stay away.
7. Properly installed artificial grass will allow rain water to drain away quickly. This helps to ensure that your lawn is always available for your dog or other pets to play on.
