MYTH – Artificial grass contains materials that are dangerous for my pet.

MYTH – My pets won’t like the smell.
We’re not quite sure where this myth came from but there is no “artificial smell” that deters your pets. Like with anything new, your dog or cat may be a bit hesitant at first, but once they get used to the artificial grass they’ll love it just as much as the old stuff!
MYTH – Artificial grass becomes too hot to the touch so my pet can’t enjoy it when it’s sunny.
People assume it’s just like leaving a plastic deck chair in the sun and will become too got too touch. Artificial grass is made up of numerous different materials and strands which don’t absorb the sun’s rays like a big chunk of plastic.
MYTH – There will be nowhere for them to go to the toilet
If you have a dog and he/she usually uses the back garden to do his business – they still can! Like with natural lawn, your pet can go to the toilet and you’ll be able to scoop up the mess. In fact, it’s actually easier to get rid of your pet’s mess with artificial grass and urine just drains straight out!
