Artificial turf is completely safe for both pets and children. Due to its unnatural makeup pets such as dogs won’t be tempted to dig through, chew, or eat it. When surrounded by artificial turf, your pets’ instincts won’t kick in exactly the same way. If they attempt to eat it, they won’t be harmed and they are unlikely to do it again.
The surface of the turf discouraged pets from digging because it is not possible to do it. If your pet loves digging holes and ruining your garden, artificial turf can be an effective way of preventing it. Pet urine can also kill or stain natural grass. Fortunately, this is not possible with artificial turf and you can easily scoop up any unpleasant mess that your pet leaves behind and rinse your lawn to clear away the residue.
Rain also acts as a natural cleaner for artificial turf. As for children, artificial turf is designed to be soft and has undergone testing for its safety. In case your child is prone to bruises and bumps, you can be sure that he or she will be totally safe when playing on artificial turf.
