How to Keep Your Pet Turf in Peak Condition in Three Easy Steps

January 25, 2024

Once reserved for indoor sports centers, artificial turf has become widely recognized as one of the best options for pet parents in Arizona! Pet turf is far more water-conscious and low-maintenance than natural grass, making it ideal for home and business owners in desert climates. 

We’ve broken down the top three ways to keep your pet turf in optimal condition so your furry friends can enjoy your lawn for years.

Choose Your Pet Turf Supplier Wisely

The first step in making your pet turf last is choosing a high-quality material. Not all turf is created the same, and knowing what properties to look for will help your new landscape stand the test of time (and pet use!).

Quality pet turf has short, densely packed fibers and a durable polyurethane backing for high pull-force resistance. Combined with quality installation, these two properties will ensure your pet turf is strong enough to withstand the roughest and toughest play!

Ask Your Artificial Grass Installer About Infill Options

Artificial turf infill comes in many forms, from EnviroFill to coated silica sand. Though they all generally serve the same purpose (keeping the blades upright and ensuring drainage), some infills are better suited to pet turf than others.

Your artificial turf installation contractor should help you choose an infill compatible with your turf’s pile height. We also recommend asking about antimicrobial options that will help neutralize the ammonia in pet waste and keep odors to a minimum.

Invest in Professional Synthetic Grass Maintenance

Artificial grass maintenance is crucial when your pets use your lawn! Pet waste, dirt, and debris can quickly accumulate, turning your lawn into a breeding ground for bacteria. Not only does this create odors, but it can lead to more severe problems like mold down the road.

Picking up waste and rinsing down your lawn is ideal as needed. However, scheduling a quarterly artificial turf maintenance service will target deeper problems and give your pet turf the refresh it needs! Calling in the pros means your pet’s play area will get a full, deep cleaning using professional equipment and specially targeted formulas.
