We all face problems finding a place for our pets to play. Although many pet owners try to reserve a place in their front or back yards, the lack of a proper lawn irks the pets. Dogs and cats like to roll in the sand and grass but they also create a mess out of this hobby. If you have a natural grass in your lawn then you must have noticed the dry patches where the grass was uprooted by the pets. You can practically say goodbye to having a clean and green lawn if you have pets. Except if you choose fake grass.
The advancement in technology has resulted in the development of synthetic grass. It looks natural from a distance and only a closer look will reveal its reality. The good thing about fake turf is that it is available in many constructions. You can purchase one that is made of tougher fibers and is thus ideal for your pets.
Although all types of fake turf are made of stronger fibers, some have a greater strength than the others. You can find the best fake grass for you pet’s lawn by looking for certain things. First things first, identify a place in your backyard where you want to build a pet’s lawn. Ideally, the place should be cordoned off from the rest. A smaller portion of your backyard is enough for the job. Remove the grass and weeds from that area and take accurate measurements.
You can then go shopping for the fake turf once the measurements are complete. Try looking for fake grass that appears soft yet has stronger weaving and construction. You can rub your hands on the grass and apply pressure to check for strength. Also look at the drainage system and base materials. A professional installation will take care of these things but a do-it-yourself strategy requires extra caution. Don’t buy fake grass that comes with poor drainage as the stink will be unbearable after a day or two.
It is even better if you choose grass that needs irrigation to one that comes in a dry form. Watering the turf will remove the fecal matter and impurities from the grass with ease. You may otherwise have to undergo a deep scrubbing session that will also damage the fibers.
Once all the purchases have been made, it is time for installation. A proper drainage and accurate placement of the turf are two main pre-requisites of the job. The installation does not take long. You will, however, need to follow the instructions on the waiting time before you can allow your pets to romp on the grass. It usually takes a few hours for the turf to take roots and get stabilized. You can then allow your pets to enjoy on the artificial turf. They can play as long as they want and romp and roll on the grass but there will be no bare patches of sand that you used to see on the natural grass.
