My dogs really get excited playing in the backyard – not only does that track a lot of mud in the house, but I always have to wash their paws before they come inside. What a mess! But all of that is in the past since I installed beautiful, natural looking artificial turf in the backyard. Dogs can’t dig through artificial turf and you won’t have to fertilize and use weed killers that are dangerous to pets. Your dog will stay much cleaner and fleas and tics are discouraged. It’s also good to know that there are no toxic properties to artificial turf that can harm pets. Artificial turf is popular with dog day care facilities, pet training areas and dog parts and shelters, too. If you have a dog, you definitely should consider artificial turf for the backyard.
