Why Artificial Grass is Great for Toronto Pet Owners
In Toronto, more and more people are becoming pet owners – especially during these pandemic times. Many pet owners are installing artificial grass in Toronto as part of their overall pet “environment.” For those considering artificial turf in Toronto, it’s always important to opt for a reliable and reputable company.
A big problem for pet owners (particularly dog owners) is keeping the lawn areas in good shape while the pet is romping around. One of the better ways to keep lawn areas “dog-friendly” is with artificial grass. And with today’s high-quality grasses, many pet owners are finding that the “fake” option is the ideal solution for many reasons.
Whatever the size of the installation, artificial grass brings a host of benefits for both the pet and the surrounding environment. For some, even an artificial grass mat will do the job. And for those who are more limited in space, pet turf is perfect for the patio or balcony. Here again, a quality product will ensure long-term durability.
Say Goodbye to Muddy Paw Prints
Muddy paw prints are a pain for most pet owners. It’s a chore wiping up every time, and it’s extra work cleaning up muddy tracks around the home. Simply put, artificial grass just doesn’t have mud. When installing artificial grass in Toronto, the existing ground mud is removed, and a sub-base is installed as a foundation for the grass product. The beauty, of course, is that pets can run around outdoors year-round, rain or shine, without getting muddied up.
Dogs Can’t Dig Into Artificial Grass
While most dogs love to dig, artificial grass does not provide the opportunity to do so. In fact, there is a minimal chance that a dog (or any other animal) could destroy the surface. When the product is installed correctly, the pile is dense, and the backing is resilient – it’s “dig-proof.” With artificial turf in Toronto, a high-quality product will also prevent any pet from reaching into the installed backing. Finally, adequately secured edges ensure a tight seam around.
Artificial Turf Looks Great All Year
One of the big advantages of artificial grass in Toronto is that it looks great all year round, whatever the weather conditions. During wet weather, artificial grass will not get boggy. In the heat of the sun, the surface will not fade. As for drainage, rainfall quickly drains through the surface without allowing any pockets of standing water. Naturally, this surface environment is ideal for pets. With this in mind, professional installation is the key to success.
No Harmful Substances For Pets
Pet owners installing artificial turf in Toronto should ensure that their product choice contains no harmful substances. This is the best way to ensure no harm will be caused to pets (or people). The truth is, artificial grass requires no harmful fertilizers, weed-killers, or pesticides, so there’s no potential for any harm. From an environmental point of view, all of those toxic substances do not drain into the ground and do not get washed into the public sewer systems.
Great Sensory Experience for Pets
Industry research shows that dogs actually love artificial turf – it’s the texture and consistency of the “grass” fibers that feel good. Because the pile is lush and dense, the surface is both soft and comfortable for pets and an ideal environment to luxuriate. As it is, the artificial grass surface is often preferable to real grass. Not surprisingly, pet owners also prefer the artificial surface to natural grass – a win-win scenario for everyone involved, especially in the nice weather.
Artificial Turf Is Easy to Clean
With artificial grass, easy maintenance is a significant benefit for a pet owner. Since dogs will likely use the lawn as their “private bathroom,” the clean up is an easy task overall. Liquids drain through the surface and can be easily rinsed away with a water hose. Solid waste can be handled in the usual way (along with a rinse). Pet excrement will not cause artificial grass to discolour and will not compromise the performance – there are only advantages over real grass.
