Why Synthetic Grass is Best for Dog Parks
Spacious and reliable outdoor spaces for dogs are a bit of a rare sight. That’s why many communities are considering adding dog parks to help accommodate this need. Communities planning out their dog parks face a tough decision on the type of surface that is best for their outdoor space. While natural grass is certainly an option for some communities, it isn’t a viable choice for many others because of its drawbacks, including dead spaces, matting, and the accumulation of mud and debris. An artificial turf dog park, on the other hand, is the ideal environment for dogs of all types and sizes to play in.
Less Maintenance Needed
Natural grass surfaces require extensive maintenance to keep their appearance and functionality. Maintenance activities like regular watering, mowing, and fertilizing are necessary for your natural grass dog park. This is all avoidable if you choose to install synthetic grass for your dog park. Unlike natural grass, artificial turf doesn’t require the same level of exhaustive maintenance to keep its functionality and stunning appearance. With a synthetic grass dog park, your community will save time and money while still providing a clean, enjoyable setting for pets.
Safe for Pets
Unlike natural grass, artificial turf is a low-maintenance surface that doesn’t require the use of lawn chemicals. The dogs in your community will be able to play to their heart’s content in a synthetic grass dog park without having to worry about being exposed to harmful chemicals or toxins. At SGW Sacramento, we offer our high-quality Pet Turf system, which provides a safe and non-toxic environment for dogs to play in.
Usable All Year Long
No matter the time of year, artificial turf will always function at a high level. The same cannot be said for natural grass. The state of a natural grass surface is often determined by the current weather season. Cold weather can harden natural grass and make it unpleasant and unsafe for your pets to play on. Extremely hot weather overheats natural grass, turning it into an unbearable surface for dogs. None of this is a concern when you install an artificial grass surface for your dog park. Synthetic turf will keep a consistent, playable surface, no matter what the weather looks like.
No Odors or Smells
Natural grass dog parks can get messy over time and attract unflattering odors that will drive many away. Many synthetic grass options, like those offered at SGW Sacramento, feature stellar drainage systems that prevent any build-up of odors, bacteria, mold, and mildew from occurring. Pet owners won’t have to hold their noses and can breathe freely whenever they’re out at the dog park.
