Pet Friendly Artificial Grass in Kent
If you have pets, it’s vital that you install artificial grass that is safe for your furry friends. This is absolutely key, as some products are falsely advertised as pet friendly which leads to serious issues further down the line. Grass that isn’t pet friendly leads to bacteria growth and nasty smells which are difficult to remove.
At K9 Turf, we have designed a product that is 100% pet friendly. By combining the latest technology and innovation, our turf actively repels pet urine and benefits from a ProwFlow backing which enhances drainage by up to 400%.
After many trials and tests, K9 Turf is now one of the safest types of artificial grass on the market. Made from anti-porous materials, it offers an unrivalled drainage system, effectively eliminating any nasty build-ups and smells.
Another key element to consider is how you grass will be installed. It’s common for some homeowners to fit the turf themselves, however, if inexperienced, this can lead to future problems. Installing artificial grass is a complex process which must be done professionally if you want it to last. This is especially true where pets are involved as a sound drainage system must be incorporated.
Artificial grass installation in Kent
To ensure all the gardens we install are built to last, our team in Kent use a 4-phase installation process.
At K9 Turf in Kent, we advise that our clients use our 4-phase installation process to guarantee the lifespan of their grass for up to 18 years.
For pet owners, it is also key that your grass has a robust drainage system in place as well as solid foundations. Our unrivalled system takes into account foundations, drainage and aesthetics to leave you with a garden that not only looks great but stays bacteria free too.
The following outlines the four stages we use:
- Base work
At the start of the process, the land is completely excavated, removing and roots, debris or rocks. This ensures the area is flat and clear of any elements which could cause future issues.
The surface is then completely levelled and a slight slant is incorporated to allow for drainage.
Following this, a thick layer of crushed rock and grano is applied across the surface to provide a solid foundation. This combination of anti-porous materials was sourced to allow for drainage. Other landscaping companies use sand and concrete as alternative foundations which absorb pet waste over time. Once absorbed, it is near on impossible to clean and many gardens have to be completely removed. The materials we use pose no such issues and provide the drainage system your garden requires.
The team then lay plastic battens around the perimeter of the lawn which help to strengthen the turf once installed.
- K9 Turf Proflow Urethane Backing
Unlike other artificial grass providers in Kent, we use a patented ProFlow technology to back our turf. This boosts drainage by up to 400%. We incorporate this system into the backing which consists of four layers - unlike a traditional, latex perforated backing. Each layer is made from a monofilament yarn which repels liquid and increases drainage capacity. Our backing also prevents weeds from sprouting through the grass.
The backing layers include the following:
- One 5-pick layer
- Two dense gauge woven layers
- One coating of urethane compound.
The team then pump air into the backing of the grass once everything is installed. This helps to further enhance the drainage capacity of K9 Turf.
- K9 Turf Infill
Once the grass has been installed, we then spread a layer of organic K9 Turf infill across the surface. This is a key stage as infill keeps the grass upright and acts as a barrier against excess liquid and pet waste.
We K9 Turf Zeolite Infill which is made using 100% natural ingredients. This means that the product is safe for pets and the environment.
The materials that make up the infill are designed to absorb any excess pet urine. This stops it from seeping into the grass and turning into harmful bacteria.
- K9 Turf Enzyme Cleaner
To complete the process, the team clean the area to remove any waste and leave the grass in pristine condition. To cleanse the area, we use K9 Turf Enzyme Cleaner which contains natural enzymes. They digest and erode organic waste and bacteria, making it easy to rinse away.
The cleaner seeps through the surface of the turf to the foundations and erodes bacteria at every layer. The grass will then be left odour and bacteria free. Unlike other cleaners currently available, K9 Turf Enzyme Cleaner is environmentally safe.
This comprehensive process helps to guarantee your grass warranty and ensures it is safe and built to last. We make it our priority to always ensure that every customer is 100% satisfied upon completion.
