Pet Turf: 6 Ways to Use It in Your Commercial Pet Areas

Find out where and why commercial pet facilities are using artificial grass
April 29th, 2016

If you run a busy commercial pet facility, then consider installing pet turf to improve your operations and attract more clients. Not only will it help boost your business’ aesthetic appeal, but it also offers benefits that will be approved by pet parents.

1. Municipal Dog Parks

Local dog owners and residents from nearby high rises can bring their pets to the recent Miami dog park at Margaret Pace Park. It features 20,000 square feet of SYNLawn Pet Premium.

City officials know that dog parks are a great place to let your furry friend run free. When planning a municipal project, many are looking to get the most bang for their budget. Offering a lifetime warranty like SYNLawn does is often an appealing selling point because they won’t have to replace their artificial turf for dogs… possibly ever.

2. Pet Areas at Apartment Complexes

The Towson Promenade Apartments in Towson, Maryland includes a 450-square-foot dog park using our SYNTipede 214.

If you manage a pet-friendly apartment complex, then you likely have a place for a pet area, dog run or dog park. No matter if you house hundreds or thousands of residents, you can keep your pet owners as well as your staff members satisfied by installing pet-friendly turf. In the long run, it will help you cut down on maintenance costs because dogs won’t be tracing their muddy paws throughout the building grounds and apartment units.

3. Pet Areas Outside Offices

The dedicated doggy space at this office includes an outdoor shed, a dog bed and lots of toys all on our SYNLawn artificial grass for dogs and pets.

More businesses are attracting employees by allowing them to spend their workday with their furry friends. But what happens when Fido needs to take 10? Providing a designated doggy area outside your office building means your pet owners won’t have to waste time trying to find a spot for their pups’ potty breaks. Our pet turf systems also provide a pest-free environment, so you won’t have to worry about fleas and ticks being brought back into the office.

4. Pet Boarding and Daycare Facilities



After Happy Tails in St. Ann, Mo., installed 19,000 square feet of SYNLawn, staff noticed a dramatic increase in the amount of dogs they took care of. Clients said it was because of the added dog turf.

Pet boarding facilities and dog daycare facilities may be able to take care of a large number of pooches in a day. But with artificial grass for dogs, your nose would never know it! Synthetic turf will keep your outdoor area from looking like a lawn full of brown spots. Everyone will enjoy green grass all year no matter how many pups romp around on your synthetic turf. SYNLawn installers also add organic odor-absorbing crystals that are 100-percent natural and environmentally safe in order to help eliminate smells.

5. Play Areas at Pet Resorts

Pete & Mac’s Pet Resorts in Lee’s Summit, Mo., replaced more than 2,100 square feet of pet turf in their big dog play area with SYNTipede 214.

Many pet resorts have an outdoor space where pets can play, but if you live in an area with wild weather, don’t worry. Water, or any other kind of liquid, drains through our artificial turf for pets at a rate of 30-inches+ per hour. This means that dogs big and small will be able to play outside even after a storm.

6. Dog Pools at Pet Resorts

Holiday Barn Pet Resorts in Richmond, Va., installed more than 15,600 square feet of SYNTipede 214, including around the dog pool.

If you own a pet resort, chances are you offer a wide range of services to cater to the unique needs of your pet clients. Swim services may be one way you’re setting yourself apart from the competition, but did you know that saltwater and chlorine wreak havoc on grass? Installing artificial pet turf around the pool area helps you avoid a maintenance nightmare because it keeps the grass green, the dogs clean and the water from becoming a muddy mess. It’s also an ideal surface to use for bath time.
