The Best Artificial Grass Products for Pet Owners

Homeowners across Laguna Niguel are switching to artificial turf for their home’s landscaping, and with good reason. Synthetic grass is a low-maintenance, attractive solution for your home’s lawn, especially if you have pets. Long considered the bane of a beautiful backyard, your furry friends will no longer be a threat to your pristine landscaping. Specialized turf products such as infill and deodorizers ensure that your green space is beautiful all year long while simultaneously protecting your pet and enhancing their outdoor playtime.

Pet Turf

As the trusted source for artificial grass in Orange County, OC Turf & Putting Greens offers a specialized Pet Turf that is designed for pet owners. Produced by TigerTurf, Pet Turf is made from the same durable polyethylene materials as other types of synthetic grass, with a one-inch blade height that balances a realistic appearance with resilience. The individual turf blades are made in a three-dimensional “W” shape, allowing them to spring back into place after being stepped on. The triple tuft binding also keeps the blades securely connected to the turf’s backing at all times, so your pet can’t rip out grass blades like they would with natural sod. Capable of draining 28 inches of rain per hour per square yard, Pet Turf can easily dispose of your pet’s waste with proper rinsing. This means that your dog can run, play, and go to the bathroom on your synthetic turf just as they would with a normal grass lawn, but they’ll have a much harder time damaging it.

Odor-Neutralizing Infill

The best thing to pair with pet turf is the right kind of infill. Pet urine is high in ammonia, which leaves behind an unpleasant smell after it dries out. At OC Turf & Putting Greens, however, we offer two specialized types of infill that can capture and neutralize the ammonia before it reaches your nose: Durafill and Zeolite Max. Durafill is made from silicon dioxide granules, while Zeolite Max is made from zeolites. Both of these brands are non-toxic and serve as an excellent infill solution for any lawn, keeping turf blades standing upright and preventing them from matting. Whenever a pet goes to the bathroom on your turf, the infill captures the ammonia molecules, preventing unwelcome odors from forming. By picking up solid waste and giving the area a quick rinse, you can disperse pet urine with ease and keep your lawn looking and smelling pristine.

Turf Deodorizer

Whether or not you use a pet-neutralizing infill, we always recommend purchasing a deodorizer product like Pet Fresh to remove urine smells and other foul odors. Pet Fresh is an organic spray solution that removes the smell of pet urine as well as any other lingering odors in artificial turf. Rather than masking the smell with fragrances, Pet Fresh uses organic enzymes to neutralize odor-causing bacteria at the source. Pet Fresh is a non-toxic odor eliminator, so you and your pet can continue to use your lawn shortly after it’s been applied.
