22 Nov Common questions around artificial grass & dogs
Many of us think of dogs as one of our family members, so naturally, we would go above and beyond to ensure they are happy and healthy.
For that reason, artificial grass has become a popular choice amongst dog owners thanks to a range of pet-friendly benefits. Fewer toxins, poisonous weeds and a soft, durable surface for your dog to roll about on are one of the many reasons to invest in installing artificial grass.
Here are a few commonly asked questions regarding artificial grass and your four-legged friend:
#1. Is it safe for dogs?
The short answer is yes! Artificial grass is absolutely safe for pets, cats and dogs. Easigrass’ natural-looking premier artificial grass not only ensures your garden is lush all year round, but that you’ll no longer have to use harmful chemicals, pesticides, weed killers or fertilisers. You can rest assured knowing your fur baby is enjoying a good stretch, roll or nap without being exposed to harsh contaminants that could cause them harm. Easigrass artificial grass for pets is toxin-free and made with no harmful ingredients.
#2. Which is better, natural or artificial grass?
While both have benefits, you could say artificial grass is better for dogs than its natural counterpart. This is because you don’t have to worry about your doggo digging up your garden and leaving a mess before walking through your home with muddy paws. Artificial grass is also technologically formulated, providing a turf that’s soft on paws, which can lower the risk of your pet running and getting injured by rocks, sticks or harmful bugs.
#3. Can dogs pee or poop on artificial grass?
Yes! The best part is that the clean up process is much easier compared to natural grass. How easy is it? It’s as simple as picking up and throwing away waste or hosing your dog’s regular potty spot with a little water. Easigrass artificial grass products are fully porous and ensure your pet’s waste (like poop and urine) will drain through and decompose in its natural state.

#4. Can dogs damage artificial grass?
Good quality artificial grass is designed to withstand heavy use, making it durable and long-lasting. Your dogs can run, jump and play to their heart’s content without you having to worry about whether they will cause damage. The durability of Easigrass ensures your garden remains pristine all year round, even when your dog is doing its best to dig or chew through the material.
#5. Do I have to worry about ticks and fleas?
Removing fleas and ticks from your dog’s coat can be a nightmare when you have natural grass, as it’s a well-known breeding ground for these critters and other bugs. Because artificial grass is made from synthetic material, it does not support the nesting habits of these pests, so your dog can have the freedom to run about without the worry of harmful bugs and parasites.
