One of the greatest advantages of our artificial grass range and installation systems for pet owners is that there is no need to worry about stains when your cat and dog needs to go to the toilet. Easigrass lawns are permeable, allowing pet urine to drain through and faces to be removed easily and hygienically. Unlike natural lawns, artificial grass fibres are not damaged by animal faeces or urine.
As with most surfaces, however, strong smells can build up if not washed through, particularly in hot, dry weather. The good news is spillages on all Easigrass artificial turf can be easily washed away.
We recommend owners establish a pet toilet area where mild detergents can be used to help manage smells. Train the dog to pee in this one section and reward him when he does so. Some dogs have exceptionally strong smelling urine, so – as with any toilet area – particular attention needs to be given to flushing away waste residue.
Dogs love to sniff out other canine smells and they generally prefer to do their business away from their own garden. Regular walks help to encourage healthy toilet habits.
If dog or fox urine smells become noticeable or persist, the synthetic turf can be sprayed with the Easi re-odouriser which is specifically designed to neutralise strong odours.
