Artificial Pet Turf Frequently Asked Questions

There are a lot of reasons that artificial grass is a great option for Asheville pet owners! First and foremost, it's much easier to care for than real grass — you won't have to worry about trimming, saving you valuable time and money. Additionally, artificial grass is more tough than natural grass, so it can withstand pets playing. Plus, artificial grass is chemical-free and safe, making it safe for your pets.

It's not easy for fleas, ticks, and other pests to survive in the artificial turf. While we can’t guarantee that your yard will be completely free of pests, you can count on them to be virtually eliminated.

As long as you maintain your artificial lawn regularly, there will be barely any pests.

Southwest Green's pet-turf system is designed to help neutralize odors, but there are steps you can take to ensure no smells persist. We advise you use a solution of equal parts H2O and vinegar to spray Fido’s favorite bathroom area. Let it dry to neutralize any unpleasant odor, if the SWG system was not used.
