Artificial Turf For Pets in Pittsburgh

August 23, 2021

Choosing the best artificial grass for pets: A How-To.

Pet-Friendly Artificial Grass

Getting a dog doesn’t mean you have to give up your goal of maintaining a gorgeous, green yard. You just have to acquire the proper type of turf. Synthetic turf will remedy common problems like:

Brown Spots

Pet urine has a high nitrogen load and pH level, burning grass and leaving brown spots. With synthetic grass, you won’t have a spotted yard anymore. Artificial turf blades will not degrade when they come in contact with pet waste, either.


In contrast to natural grass, which is made up of individual blades of grass that sprout from the soil, artificial turf has a foundation that binds all the fibers together. This discourages your furry friend from trying to dig in the yard and ruining your perfectly maintained lawn.


Synthetic grass has a naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial surface so fleas, ants, and ticks are not attracted to your turf — no pests in your yard, no pests for your dog to carry inside your home.


The entirely nonabsorbent, porous backing of artificial turf allows it to drain better and cleaner than organic grass. Pet litter and spills can be cleaned by rinsing the area with a water hose. Since synthetic turf is inorganic, it doesn’t require water to sustain a green, gorgeous look all year round. It also never needs to be cut.


Not needing frequent mowing and watering also implies that your pet will never track in grass clippings or mud from your yard. Needless to say, an effortlessly clean yard also promotes a tidy house. It is also antibacterial by nature.

Why Synthetic Over Natural Grass?

Shawgrass turf is porous and placed over a highly compacted subbase. When your dog uses the bathroom on the surface, it first contacts the upper layer (infill and fiber). Water-resistant fibers and coated infill prevent fluid absorption. This means that bacteria and litter will wash through the turf naturally.

In addition to making pet ownership easier, synthetic grass extends extra benefits to barefooted loved ones, too. Here are just a few more reasons why you’ll adore artificial grass.
