Despite it being so much easier to maintain, you may be unsure as to whether or not artificial grass is an option for you if you have pets. After all, how do you maintain artificial grass when you have dogs that seem to poop around the clock? The answer might surprise you. In fact, artificial grass and dogs mix quite well.
Can Dogs Pee and Poop on Artificial Grass?
Yes, dogs can pee and poop on artificial grass — just like they would on natural grass. The good news is that you will not have to clean urine from your artificial grass. It drains away in the same way as rainwater. However, you will need to scoop up and dispose of dog poop just as you would do when your furry friend makes a mess on regular grass. It is also recommended to hose down the poop-affected area to completely eliminate any residual mess.
Can You Jet Wash Artificial Grass?
Yes, you can jet wash artificial grass. But, it can be costly and is not necessary, even if you have pets. A high-quality artificial turf cleaner will usually do the trick.
Dealing with Pet Odor in Artificial Grass
When it comes to fake pet grass, there is one thing that you will need to keep in mind: odor. Even the best artificial grass will eventually start to give off an odor if your pet pees and poops on it. Luckily, if you are wondering what neutralizes dog urine and keeps that nasty odor at bay, we have a solution for you.
