4 Reasons You Need Artificial Turf For Your Pets
Not many pet owners realize that conventional garden lawns can be dangerous for a pet. With an artificial grass installation, the dangers are diminished (if not completely eliminated). Typically, a lawn is fertilized every season and sprayed with chemicals to keep everything weed-free – clearly not a great environment for pets.
For artificial grass in Toronto, Fieldmasters provides a safe, clean outdoor environment for pets. Depending on the type of animal, our artificial turf specialists will design and install the material that best suits their needs. Our turf doesn’t contain chemicals, needs no fertilizer, and will drain out quickly when flushed with water.
Good Reasons to Install Artificial Grass in Toronto
Many pet owners have decided to switch over to artificial turf because of the downsides of natural grass. They might have concerns about chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. They might be fed up with the cost of lawn maintenance. Or, they might want to avoid pet damage to their natural lawn. Whatever the reason, the benefits of artificial grass installation make the initial costs worthwhile.
No Need to Apply Chemicals
Because Fieldmasters turf is artificial, there’s no need to apply fertilizer to make the lawn green and there’s no need to apply pesticides to get rid of weeds. This is a great benefit for pets and far healthier than a “polluted” lawn. In fact, this is also of benefit for children who spend the spring and summer outdoors. Finally, there are no residual chemicals to drain down into the water table.
Practically No Maintenance
Artificial turf requires practically no maintenance from one season to the next. To begin with, there’s no need for watering and no need to suffer the annual expense (especially with a large and expansive lawn). More than that, there’s no need for aerating, no need to mow the lawn, and no need for a spring or fall “cleanup”. Year after year, this can be a real burden for homeowners.
Safe and Clean Environment
Fieldmasters artificial turf comes with a proprietary backing system (DURAFLO E.E.B.S®) that’s made with recycled materials and isn’t harmful to pets or kids. There’s also no cause for concern when pets do their “business” on synthetic turf – liquids drain out easily and odours don’t linger. With other types of pet clean up, the only requirement is a quick flush with a regular water hose.
Resilient and Long-Lasting
For pets that like to dig around, artificial turf isn’t affected, and there are no residual after-effects. Daily wear and tear don’t disturb the resilient materials, even after a number of years. It’s also quite rare that any damage will require replacement. In fact, Fieldmasters provides a ten-year warranty when the finished installation is maintained as recommended by the turf manufacturer.
