Having a dog in Augusta doesn’t mean you must give up your dream of having a lush, green lawn. You simply need the right type of lawn. Artificial grass resists a variety of canine activities that often plague pet owners.

  • Brown spots: Your pet’s urine has a high nitrogen level and pH level, which has a tendency to burn grass and develop unattractive brown spots. With synthetic grass, you don’t have to deal with a spotted yard any longer since synthetic grass fibers are not susceptible to discoloration when they come in contact with pet waste.
  • Maintenance: 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 washing the area with a water hose. Artificial turf is inorganic, so it does not need water to sustain a green, lush appearance all year round. It also never needs to be cut.
  • Messes: Eliminating heavy watering and mowing also means your dog will never bring in mud or grass clippings from your yard. In this way, an effortlessly clean lawn also maintains a spotless house.
  • Digging: Unlike natural grass with separate blades rising from the ground, artificial grass has a backing that holds all the fibers in place. This discouraged your pet from digging in the backyard and ruining your yard.
  • Pests: The naturally antimicrobial and hypoallergenic surface of artificial grass means that ants, ticks and fleas are not interested in living in your lawn. No pests in the yard, no pests for your dog to carry inside your home.
