15 Nov Keeping your instant turf in great condition when you have pets
Having a large backyard for your pets has a number of benefits. Not only will they have access to fresh air, but it will also have a positive effect on their health, reduce their stress and improve their mood. As you love your pets like family, it’s important that you keep your instant turf in great condition to prevent future problems not only for your lawn, but also so you can keep your pets happy and healthy. Here are some of the ways how.
Choose a pet-friendly grass variety
Choosing a pet-friendly grass variety will ensure that the grass has wear and tear properties that make them more durable for your pets to run and play safely on without fear of damage. Our Matilda Buffalo variety is a soft and durable grass that’s child and pet-friendly. It’s ideal for your entertainment and play area and with its quality performance, it makes the perfect lawn for year-round use.
Clean up pet waste immediately
It’s natural for pets to do their business on the lawn, so as soon as you see pet waste, immediately scoop it up and throw it in the trash bin. If pet wastes are left for a long time on your turf surface, it will negatively impact the growth of your grass in the long run due to excessive nitrogen which can burn the grass and may cause it to die.
Set up a designated toilet spot
A pet-friendly lawn is an ideal spot for your pet to play and enjoy yard time, but they will also treat it as a giant bathroom. To prevent this, it’s best to have a designated toilet spot for your pets. Choose a silent area with less traffic and away from everyone, so that your pets can have privacy. Make sure that it’s also near a trash bin so it’s easier to dispose of waste.
