Why Artificial Grass is Perfect for Dog Kennels

If you run a dog kennel, doggy daycare, vet hospital, or any other animal facility, artificial grass is a landscaping solution that will keep you and your four-legged clients happy. Beautiful, affordable, and low maintenance, synthetic turf will go a long way in improving the overall appearance and functionality of your pet-friendly outdoor space. Here are just a few reasons why artificial turf is perfect for your facility.

Extremely Durable

One of the biggest concerns for dog kennels is ensuring that any landscaping can stand up to the biggest, most boisterous dogs. While some kennels opt for all-concrete outdoor space that dogs can’t destroy, having beautiful green grass that they can run and play on will impress clients and ensure they bring back their pets for more playtime in the future. While natural grass can turn brown and rip out of the ground with ease, artificial grass is specially engineered to be extremely durable and resistant to pull force. Each turf blade is reinforced with triple tuft bind technology which ensures that there’ll be no doggy digging or holes in your green space. Even the most rambunctious of pups will be no match for the durability of your artificial grass.


If you run a doggy daycare, then you likely know that cats and dogs can suffer from grass allergies in the same way that people can. From sneezing to skin irritation, having natural grass can cause a bad reaction in some of your pups, causing you to have to restrict their outdoor playtime or try to treat their reactions. Synthetic grass, on the other hand, is made from a hypoallergenic material that is completely safe for pets. Artificial turf blades also don’t hold pollen the same way natural grass does, causing far less severe allergic reactions in those animals with hayfever. If you keep your turf well-maintained using a routine turf cleaning service such as TurFresh, you can all but eliminate harmful allergens that may restrict your dogs’ playtime and fun.

Easy to Clean

Where there are dogs, there is cleaning to be done. From vacuuming furniture to cleaning up pet waste, dogs can be high-maintenance. However, when you choose artificial grass for your dog kennel, you can rest assured that you have one less area to worry about. Natural grass can be difficult to keep clean. It requires daily watering, can cause your dogs to get dirty or muddy, and it becomes brown and patchy extremely easily. Artificial grass, however, is an extremely low-maintenance solution that always remains beautiful and functional for your space. Rather than cleaning your grass area every day, you can simply rinse down your turf with a hose every week or so to flush away any bacteria or debris. The efficient drainage system will ensure that your turf is dry and ready to play on in just a couple of hours. There are also a range of odor-neutralizing, antibacterial maintenance products that will ensure your green space stays clean and odor-free all year long. From TurFresh BioS+ deodorizer spray to BioKennel infill, TurFresh has everything you need to keep your kennel looking and smelling great. If you want clean-up to be even easier, allow us to do it for you. We offer commercial turf cleaning services that range from monthly to bi-annually, depending on your needs and your budget.

When clients choose whom to trust their beloved pups with, they want a facility that’s beautiful, clean, and looks like a paradise their furry friend would enjoy. Don’t scare them away with all-concrete patios or make life harder for yourself with natural grass.
