I have three Labrador Retriever dogs and they are a menace. They have torn my backyard up and I literally have no grass anymore. I finally succumbed to the idea of putting artificial turf in my backyard for my dogs. I did a lot of research and went and looked at a lot of pet Turf installation from different manufacturers to see what I like and what worked. I got a lot of information on how to maintain artificial turf with dogs. It seems like the manufacturer's warranty covers pets being on the artificial turf so that was a good thing. The turf I found that I like the most was Global Syn Turf pet Turf. This Turf had three times the amount of holes in the backing of the turf for drainage which I felt was a huge benefit. The Turf drains at 120 in per hour which is pretty good I'm told. It's very important to have good drainage in your pet Turf so that the pet urine drains down through to the Natural soil. In doing so it's important to water the grass frequently to flush down the pet urine to the Natural soil. I'm also told that is important to use a pet cleaner with enzymes in it to eat away at any of the remnants of the pet odor so you don't have a smell in your backyard. I was told to use Simple Green their pet version that you can find at Home Depot or Lowe's. Can you spray it on directly and you let it soak for a few hours and then you rent it down very well with the hose. It will not harm the turf and it will not harm the dog and it keeps your yard smelling prayer. I've now had the artificial turf installed for 1 month now and it is still going strong. I want to thank Global Syn Turf and their local dealer distributor installer for taking such great care of me.
