In order to choose the right artificial turf, you’ll need to know what to look for. A turf’s appearance matters the most. It should look like real grass instead of plastic. Also, it needs to be soft and supportive for pets and children. These are the basic requirements. You should carefully consider them while you’re hunting for a turf.


Essential Features for a Pet-Friendly Turf

When you’re hunting for a pet-friendly turf, you must consider its:

  • Durability: A great turf for a dog needs to be hefty and strong.
  • Backing: An artificial turf for a puppy must have a fully permeable backing. It’s your only defense against pet urine odors.
  • Pile height: The pile height needs to be low. With a one-inch pile, cleanup will be easier whenever your pet goes potty.


Types of Artificial Grass

The most common artificial grass materials are:

  • Nylon: Nylon is the strongest artificial grass material.
  • Polyethylene: Polyethylene has a bright green color, and it’s softer than nylon.
  • Polypropylene: Polypropylene doesn’t have the durability of other materials, but it’s the most affordable material.

At Dominion Turf, we have the following piles:

  • Short piles: Short piles are less than 30mm tall.
  • Medium piles: Medium piles range between 30mm to 37mm.
  • Long piles: Longer piles are greater than 37mm.
