Owning a dog in Vancouver doesn’t mean you should give up your dream of having a lush, green lawn. You just need the right type of lawn. Artificial turf resists all kinds of canine activities that often plague pet owners.

  • Brown spots: Your pet’s urine has a high nitrogen load and pH level, which has a tendency to burn grass and create unattractive brown spots. With artificial turf, you don’t have to tolerate a spotted yard any longer since artificial turf fibers are not susceptible to discoloration when they come in contact with pet waste.
  • Care: The completely permeable, nonabsorbent backing of synthetic turf allows it to drain better and cleaner than real grass. That makes it possible to clean spills and pet waste by simply spraying the area with a water hose. Artificial turf is inorganic, so it does not require water to sustain a green, lush appearance all year round. It also never needs to be cut.
  • Messes: Eliminating constant watering and mowing also means your dog will never carry in mud or grass clippings from your yard. Because of this, an effortlessly clean backyard also promotes a spotless house.
  • Digging: Unlike natural grass with single blades growing from the dirt, artificial grass has a lining that holds all the fibers in place. This impedes your pet from digging in the backyard and ruining your landscaping.
  • Pests: The inherently antimicrobial and hypoallergenic surface of synthetic grass means that ants, ticks and fleas aren’t interested in living in your yard. No pests in the yard, no pests for your dog to bring inside your place.
