Beachwood’s Barkwood Is a Hit With the Canines, Thanks to SYNLawn Pet Turf

Beachwood, OH — Residents of Beachwood, Ohio, are wagging their tails in approval of the new Barkwood Park, located at Beachwood City Park East. The new dog park is Ohio’s first of its kind with over 20,000 square feet of low-maintenance pet-friendly synthetic grass. Installed by the experts at SYNLawn Northeast Ohio (link), the park provides the ideal place for pups to frolic and socialize with their owners and fellow canines. Separated into two spacious zones for safety, both large and small dogs alike can enjoy the park without muddy paws. So far, the new pet turf park certainly has a lot of tails wagging!

Low-Maintenance Artificial Turf from SYNLawn is a Sustainable Winner

The Parks and Recreation department of Beachwood chose SYNLawn’s products because they offered a sustainable and surprisingly green option for low-maintenance artificial turf. With no need for watering, fertilizing, or constant mowing, synthetic grass is already helpful to the environment. SYNLawn products take sustainability a step further, thanks to a bio-based formula that substitutes up to 60% of the backing material with soybean-derived polyols. SYNLawn’s pet grass was selected in part due to its ability to handle the heavy dog and human traffic while remaining easy to clean. For proper drainage, a limestone base was installed with a concrete border to keep edges neat and tidy. For additional safety, acrylic-coated Envirofill infill was selected as it retains less heat than similar rubber crumb options.

Since the Barkwood project is the area’s first full-sized artificial grass dog park, SYNLawn NE Ohio was happy to assist in the design and installation process. The SYNLawn team also aided the City of Beachwood’s Park Department with the necessary information and materials to fit the project into its budget. The result is a beautiful park the entire community can now enjoy.

Beachwood residents interested in visiting the dog park will need to apply through the City of Beachwood’s website and submit proof of current vaccinations. Access is granted for one year at a time to ensure all dogs stay up to date on their shots.
