Is artificial turf safe for your pets?

Is artificial turf safe for your pets?

Jan 06 2016

There are plenty of reasons to opt for artificial turf for your back or front yard. It's eco-friendly, low maintenance and looks healthy and green all year long. But is it also pet-friendly? Here's what you need to know about artificial turf for your pet's safety.

What is it?
Artificial grass, an alternative to conventional grass lawns, has become popular recently. People from all over the globe gravitate toward this option with good reason. Rain is increasingly scarce, especially for people who live in dry climates. With artificial grass, homeowners don't have to worry about their yard drying out in the summertime because of heat or lack of water. In addition, water bills won't skyrocket from having to keep the lawn moist and fertilized.

Artificial turf is safe for your pets.


Artificial turf used to look like plastic grass. However, nowadays the turf so closely resembles grass that you might even be fooled yourself. You've probably seen synthetic lawns around your neighborhood without even realizing it!

Is it safe?
Although there are plenty of benefits to artificial turf, a common question is: Is it safe for pets? There once was a time when this turf got a bad reputation, raising health concerns for pets and children. Luckily, artificial turf from System Pavers is environmentally safe, toxin-free and resists bacterial growth. It also utilizes a pile made from a polyethylene monofilament and a thatch that gives the fake-grass lawn extra strength and durability so you won't have to worry about your lawn getting destroyed by your pet.

If you're interested in an artificial lawn, check out System Pavers' options. Our selections offer a variety of color blends, blade length and style to help you achieve your ideal lawn - all year round.
