Cleaning the yard up after your dog is one of the worst jobs associated with pet-ownership. Dog urine can kill the grass, leaving unsightly yellow patches and cleaning up pet mess is a must if you’re planning on listing your home. While pets can ruin your real grass, diminish curb appeal and value - they won’t be able to do that with artificial turf. If you own a pet and are looking for a new home or have pets and are thinking about selling one day, consider fake grass.
Dog poo in the yard turns off buyers.
Having a pet mess in the yard will drive away potential buyers and if you’re not selling right now, it’s gross for you too. Dog and cat poop can contain harmful bacteria like E. coli, Giardia, Salmonella, hookworms and roundworm and it attracts flies and other pests to the yard. Picking up dog poop promptly is a must and it’s very easy when you have artificial grass. Just remove the poop, spray down the area with the hose and you’re done. A pet’s mess will not damage the turf.
Dog urine destroys your lawn and resale value.
First impressions are everything when your home is listed for sale. A yard that is covered with dog-pee dead patches will not compete in a market filled with pristine lawns and gardens. If you have artificial grass, you won’t have to worry about this anymore. It can stand up to your pet’s lawn-killing urine and can be easily rinsed with a garden hose or naturally with the next rain fall.
Replacing the lawn is expensive.
Homeowners with lawns damaged by pets can have a hard time selling their property without some serious repair or even a lawn replacement. In some cases, it might be worth removing the old lawn and replacing it with new sod. This can be a big cost and a hassle, especially when you’re already getting ready to move. Install artificial grass now so you won’t have to worry about having to do that in the future. Read more articles about artificial grass.
Quality artificial turf is strong and durable.
In addition to artificial grass making cleaning up pet mess easier, it can also withstand even the rowdiest of puppies! Plus, dogs won’t be interested in trying to dig a hole through it like real grass. They can run around the yard without trampling or damaging the turf. It’s soft on their paws and since there isn’t real dirt, you won’t have to worry about the pets bringing dirt inside the house when outdoor playtime is over.
