What are the Benefits of Artificial Turf for Pet Facilities?

Why should you invest in artificial turf for your pet facility? Artificial grass is a low-maintenance, cost saving and beautiful ground cover for homes and businesses alike. It drastically reduces water usage and landscaping costs ultimately resulting in an unbeatable return on investment!
Superior Drainage

Efficient Drainage

After a heavy rainfall, do you hesitate to let the dogs out to play, fearing the muddy paws and coats that will follow? Artificial turf can quickly drain water away, preventing it from turning into mud. This means you can use the space soon after heavy rain without worrying about drying off the dogs or cleaning up muddy messes.

Maintaining Turf

Easy To Maintain

When it comes to maintaining synthetic turf for dogs, simply hose off the turf and let it dry. Regular hosing will keep the turf looking clean and fresh. Removing solid waste is no different than on natural grass. Expensive, gas powered landscaping equipment will be a thing of the past.

Realistic & Natural-Looking


When showing potential clients around your facility, you want a beautiful space that is clean, inviting, and appealing. Pet-friendly turf provides this aesthetic year-round. The lush green turf will make your facility look clean and inviting, and it also provides beautiful photo opportunities for promotional purposes.

Pet Care Facility


Pet-friendly turf creates a safe surface for pets to play on. Dogs can run around, play rough, and even fall on the turf. Because the pet turf reacts similarly to natural grass, it creates a forgiving surface to help keep pets safe. The synthetic fibers also keep ticks, flees, and other pests at away from your dogs.


Eco Friendly

Unlike real grass, which requires fertilizer to stay lush and green, artificial turf requires no chemicals, so you don't have to worry about products that could potentially be toxic to dogs and bad for the environment. Pet-friendly turf is a sustainable landscaping solution that will lower your carbon footprint!

Durable & Long Lasting

Traditional grass doesn’t stand a chance against heavy foot traffic and playful dogs running around. Natural grass wears down quickly, becomes muddy, and develops dog urine spots. This is not a concern with pet turf, as it is designed to be durable enough to withstand high levels of traffic and even the wear and tear of dogs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are the most frequently asked questions that we hear regarding artificial turf for pet care facilities. If you have a question but don't see the answer below, please reach out and let us know.

Does artificial grass drain water & pet urine?

In short, YES!  Ideal Turf’s pet-friendly turf products are equipped with a fully permeable backing to facilitate efficient drainage of water and dog urine. A fully permeable (a.k.a. “Flow Through”) backing allows liquids to pass through any point in the turf’s backing. Pet care facilities will also benefit from using a layer of drainage tiles in their installation to enhance drainage capabilities even more.

Is synthetic turf safe for dogs?

Yes, synthetic turf is safe for dogs, and most turf products are designed with pet safety in mind. Artificial grass is made from non-toxic materials that won’t harm dogs if accidentally ingested. Additionally, synthetic turf is durable enough to withstand the constant paw traffic of dogs running around and playing. Overall, the safety, durability, and convenience of pet-friendly artificial turf make it an increasingly popular choice for pet-friendly applications.

Will dogs enjoy playing on artificial turf?

Absolutely, Yes! Dogs love to run and play on synthetic grass. They won’t be bothered by pesky bugs, fleas, or ticks. The lack of soil means the dogs in your care will remain clean and mud-free. Unlike natural grass, dogs aren’t able to dig through synthetic turf, so you’ll have nothing but clean, carefree, and happy pups on your hands.

Will dog urine stain synthetic turf?

No. Natural grass develops brown dog urine spots from the buildup of nitrogen in the soil from repeated use. You’ll no longer have to worry about those unsightly dead patches with pet-friendly synthetic grass.

What maintenance does it require?

Cleaning Dog Urine:

To clean dog urine, take advantage of the efficient drainage system, and simply rinse away dog urine with a hose. It’s actually better for dogs to urinate on artificial grass than real grass. The urine doesn’t affect the material in any way and it won’t leave a puddle that could breed all sorts of bacteria or mold.


As for the urine itself, simply let synthetic turf’s drainage backing take care of it. We do recommend keeping your sprinklers intact and regularly rinsing down the spots most frequented by dogs to keep odor under control.

Cleaning Dog Poop:

Cleaning dog poop off of pet turf is no different than with natural grass. Allow the dog poop to dry a little and solidify enough that you don’t smear it into the turf fibers when picking it up. A doggy bag or pooper scooper will work to remove solid waste from pet turf. Unfortunately, as any dog owner knows, not all dog poop is solid.


If your dog is suffering from a bout of diarrhea, cleanup will be a bit more involved. With natural grass, you can usually pick up this type of dog poop by simply pulling up the blades of grass underneath the poop. With pet turf, your best bet will be to remove as much of the waste as you can with a doggy bag or some paper towels. Once the bulk of the waste has been removed, use a garden hose to rinse the turf fibers of any residual dog poop.

How hot does fake grass get in the sun?

Yes, all synthetic turf can become hot. It doesn’t have water running through it like natural grass. That said, it doesn’t absorb and radiate heat like pavement, rock or brick surfaces. Most manufacturers make efforts to minimize the surface temperature as much as possible, such as applying heat-reflecting coatings or reducing the density of the backing material.


From our observations over the past few years, we have noticed a few factors that can impact the temperature of artificial grass surfaces.


  • Darker turf tends to become warmer.
  • Denser turf absorbs more heat.
  • Flatter blades transfer heat more quickly.
  • Uniform turf is less effectively cooled by wind.
  • Increased infill application can lead to higher temperatures.
  • Flatter, matted turf tends to be denser and warmer.

On extra warm days, simply hose off your turf to cool it down. We recommend using T°Cool® Infill with your turf installation because it cools the artificial grass by 30° – 50°F through evaporative cooling. It is also antimicrobial and will help to prevent the buildup of bacteria and odors.

How long does pet-friendly turf last?

With over a decade of experience perfecting our installation techniques, our artificial grass is built to last between 15-25 years. But, keep in mind that there are several factors that determine the longevity of your synthetic turf. Foot traffic, yarn type, and pile height are fundamental considerations that can have a significant effect. Don’t worry though, we’re here to help you choose the right artificial turf for dogs that best suits your needs.

How much does it cost?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer — it all depends on the specifics of your project. Generally, you can expect to pay between $10 and $20 per square foot for pet-friendly artificial grass (including design, materials, and labor).

But let’s break it down further. On average, installing artificial turf for your dog costs about $14 per square foot. To determine the total cost of installing turf at your pet facility, several factors need to be considered!


Outlined below are some factors that influence the pricing of your project:

  • Project size
  • Turf Product
  • Materials (Sub-Base, Infill)
  • Labor & Prep Work
  • Site Accessibility
  • Installation Extras (Drainage Tiles, Bender Board, Shock Pad, Etc.)

A quality installation should be tailored to your specific needs, so make sure to get an appropriate quote from a reputable and trustworthy turf company!
