How to Control Pet Odor with Synthetic Grass

If you have pets running around your Laguna Niguel home, you know how difficult it can be to maintain a healthy and evenly green lawn as a pet owner. If they’re not digging holes in your backyard, their waste is still leaving dead patches all over your lawn and causing it to smell like stale pet odor. Luckily, with artificial grass, an advanced system of irrigation and aeration will ensure that pet odor doesn’t have the chance to stick around and stink up your yard. From efficient drainage to specialized infill and spot cleaning solutions, there are a variety of factors that make synthetic grass the perfect landscaping solution for controlling pet odor. 

Efficient Drainage

Synthetic turf’s incredibly efficient drainage capability is one factor that makes it effective at avoiding pet odor. Here at OC Turf & Putting Greens, all of our advanced artificial grass products drain water at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard. This means that pet urine will drain through the turf and off of your property in no time. If you want to speed up the process, or if there’s solid waste you need to clean, a quick rinse down with the hose will aid in the process and keep your turf smelling fresh. The ultra-efficient drainage means that even extensive watering with the hose will be drained in no time and your turf will be dry within the hour — no pooled surface water creating health hazards or slip risks. For a lawn that stays dry, sanitary, and fresh all year long, switch to synthetic grass today.

Antimicrobial Infill

Infill is a material poured between the turf blades upon installation to help them stand upright on your lawn. They act similarly to the soil in a natural lawn, but without the mess or need for constant upkeep. For pet owners, there are specially engineered, pet-friendly infill products that are antimicrobial and completely non-toxic. These non-absorbent, antimicrobial infill products can withstand harsh conditions such as pet urine and will keep your turf smelling fresh and looking good for years to come. The infill works by capturing the ammonia in pet waste and preventing it from turning into a gas, which keeps the odor from escaping. Utilizing this infill to protect your synthetic turf from stains, odors, and deterioration will protect your investment while keeping your lawn sanitary and safe. 

Spot Cleaner & Deodorizer

In addition to the base installation products, there are also as-needed, pet-friendly cleaning products available for artificial grass. Turf freshening products such as Pet Fresh are specially formulated to clear away pet odor and keep your lawn sanitary. Products such as these are biodegradable, non-toxic formulas that will leave your lawn smelling fresh and clean without doing any harm to your kids and pets. The spray can be applied as needed, so it’s a quick and easy way to control pet odor and give your synthetic turf lawn a refreshing spot clean.

From one-time installation products to as-needed upkeep accessories, there’s a wide variety of ways in which artificial grass is ideal for pet odor control.
