Owning a dog in Asheville doesn’t mean you have to give up your dream of having a lush, green lawn. You just need the right type of lawn. Synthetic turf combats all kinds of canine activities that often plague pet owners.

  • Brown spots: Your pet’s urine has a high nitrogen content and pH level, which tends to burn grass and develop unsightly brown spots. With artificial grass, you don’t have to put up with a spotted yard any longer since artificial grass fibers are not susceptible to discoloration when they come in contact with pet waste.
  • Care: The completely porous, nonabsorbent lining of synthetic turf allows it to drain better and cleaner than real grass. That allows you to clean spills and pet waste by simply rinsing the area with a water hose. Artificial turf is inorganic, so it does not require water to sustain a green, vibrant appearance all year round. It also never needs to be cut.
  • Messes: Eliminating heavy watering and mowing also means your dog will never bring in mud or grass clippings from your yard. In this way, an effortlessly clean backyard also promotes a spotless house.
  • Digging: Unlike natural grass with individual blades growing from the ground, synthetic turf has a base that holds all the fibers in place. This deters your pet from digging in the backyard and ruining your lawn.
  • Pests: The inherently antimicrobial and hypoallergenic surface of artificial turf means that ants, ticks and fleas are not interested in living in your lawn. No pests in the yard, no pests for your dog to bring inside your house.

In addition to making pet ownership easier, synthetic grass extends extra benefits to barefooted friends
