Artificial Turf Does Not Require Chemicals
There are no chemicals required in the care of artificial grass, and overall maintenance is much simpler and less time consuming than caring for a normal grass lawn. When choosing which is the best option for you as a pet owner, you will also need to consider the potential for bacterial buildup in areas frequently used as your dog’s favorite spots to relieve himself.
Most natural grass requires fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides to keep it looking its best and to keep bugs at bay. There are organic options available for lawn care, but if you use a landscaping company to care for your yard, it may be difficult to ensure all-natural products are being used. If your dog likes to chew grass in your yard, using chemicals in your lawn care can be a concern.
With Artificial grass, if you want to go an extra step towards ensuring a bacteria-free play area for your children and pets, you can mix vinegar and water in a spray bottle to spray down areas where pets frequently urinate.
