Unlike traditional synthetic grass, our synthetic turf designed just for pets offers added benefits like antimicrobial properties and enhanced durability that caters specifically to your pet’s needs. This makes it safe for dogs and other animals.

When it comes to durability, the pet friendly artificial grass outperforms unlike natural grass due to its resistance to damage from pets’ activities, making it the best artificial turf for dogs.

Materials Used

The fibers we use in our pet turf products are typically made from materials such as polypropylene, nylon, or polyethylene. We have chosen these materials for their safety features, providing a worry-free surface for pets to play on.

ProLawn uses a blend of monofilament fibers for softness and realism, and slit film fibers for enhanced durability. This unique blend of materials ensures that the pet turf not only looks great but can also withstand the rough and tumble of active pets.

Features of ProLawn’s Pet Turf

One of the most important features of our turf is its durability. It can withstand pet-related activities such as scratching, digging, and chewing without losing its aesthetic appeal. The density of the artificial grass, known as face weight, indicates its robustness. Higher values suggest greater resistance to abrasion and suitability for areas with frequent pet activity.

ProLawn’s pet turf also has a high drainage rate, usually up to 90 inches per hour, helping prevent puddling and maintain a clean play surface for your animals. The porous backing of the artificial grass allows urine to flow through to the substrate below, which can be improved with deodorizers.

The antimicrobial technology we use in our pet turf inhibits the growth of bacteria that can cause odors and stains, helping to maintain a fresh and clean environment for both you and your furry friends. Additionally, it is easy to clean and resistant to staining.

Our artificial pet turf comes with many advantages to consider. It’s durable, safe, and low maintenance, three things that are really important when considering the welfare of our pets.


ProLawn’s pet turf is constructed using advanced techniques and technologies to ensure maximum durability. We use only top-quality materials in the manufacturing process. The grass is resistant to stains and odors, thanks to its antimicrobial properties and easy-to-clean design.

Health and Safety

Artificial turf provides a multitude of benefits for the health and safety of your pets. It avoids the use of potentially harmful pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers, making the environment safer for pets.

The design of our artificial grass reduces the likelihood of allergies in pets by not producing pollen and preventing the growth of fungi or mold. Plus, our artificial turf provides a lead-free, non-toxic, antimicrobial environment that is free of pests.

Cool Turf System

Despite its many benefits, typical pet turf does come with a few considerations. For instance, on high-temperature days, pet turf can get uncomfortably hot under direct sunlight, which may cause discomfort to pets.

However, ProLawn’s cool fiber technology helps alleviate this issue by significantly reducing turf temperatures. The fibers are designed to reflect sunlight and heat, keeping the turf surface cooler even on hot days.

Low Maintenance

One of the top benefits of artificial grass in general is its low maintenance requirement. Pet turf eradicates the need for watering, mowing, seeding, or fertilizing, freeing up your time and reducing your water bills. Its design significantly reduces pests and mud, contributing to a cleaner and more hygienic environment for your pets.

Pet Turf Maintenance Tips

We said low, not no. Despite requiring less maintenance than natural grass, artificial grass still necessitates some care to maintain its appearance and longevity. Regular cleaning and waste removal are essential tasks that can help maintain the cleanliness and longevity of your pet turf.

These maintenance tasks are relatively simple and do not require a lot of time or resources. By following these tips, you can make sure your pet turf stays clean and fresh for years.

Waste Removal

Pet waste should be removed from the turf as soon as possible to prevent any complications like discoloration and odor buildup. To remove hardened feces from artificial turf, first spray the area with water to soften the waste. Scoop up the waste and then rinse the area with water to remove any remaining residue. Apply a vinegar solution (1 part vinegar to 1 part water) to thoroughly clean the area.

For urine and general cleanliness on pet turf, after scooping waste, hose down the area and consider using a turf deodorizer or a water and vinegar solution to eliminate odors and bacteria.

Regular Cleaning

In addition to waste removal, regularly clean the pet turf surface. It’s recommended to rinse the surface weekly to prevent dust and debris accumulation. The shorter length of artificial pet turf allows for easier and faster cleaning practices. For a deeper clean, consider using cleansers that can be attached to a hose for rinsing the surface.
