Which is better: Real Grass or Synthetic Grass?
First and foremost, real grass is the only solution that truly ensures the hygiene of your dog and eliminates urine odor. With synthetic grass your dog is essentially urinating on plastic, which is not absorbed and begins to smell due to the residual urine that sticks to the synthetic grass. Natural grass absorbs the urine and is replaced with each new delivery. Natural grass also duplicates the environment that dogs are used to reducing training time. Lastly, natural grass is organic and is easy on the environment.
How long will the grass last?
Depending on the amount of direct sunlight as well as the number and size of dogs using the area, results vary. We recommend that you replace the grass every two weeks to ensure the health and hygiene of your dog. For large or multiple dogs, we also offer a weekly service option to ensure a clean and healthy environment for your dog.
