Pets like fake turf just as much as a natural lawn. They will happily run around, play, and do their business on a synthetic lawn. One of the advantages of artificial grass is that it has drainage holes and is permeable, so urine can easily drain through and faeces can be easily removed. It is worth pointing out that a good drainage system underneath the fake turf is important to ensure that water and urine can disperse easily into the crushed stone and soil below.
We hear stories of people complaining about the strong smell of urine from their pets when using artificial turf, this is generally down to them laying the turf onto a solid surface or a surface that does not have sufficient drainage material below. There is only ever a problem with smells if the urine is trapped underneath the grass and left to fester. It is always a good idea to wash off an area where an animal has done its business, there are also eco-friendly detergents you can use if you wish. Artificial grass is stain-resistant, so you will never get the tell-tale yellow patches on the lawn as you do with a natural lawn.
Artificial grass is safe for all animals. You can search online and see many cases of happy pets enjoying their artificial playground. With its soft, natural appearance artificial grass creates the perfect environment for pets.
