Inevitably, our Midwest seasons bring mud, which has caused many problems for pet owners. An artificial lawn from GroTurf is the perfect solution, and you’ll wish you did it sooner! The most common concern we hear from pet owners is regarding how the artificial grass will hold up against their pets. Well, as we’ve said, not all artificial grass is created equal. Not just any turf will do, especially for pets. Pet grass needs to be the highest of quality and very specifically made in order to prevent odor and stand the test of time. We’ve got you covered.
Hassle-Free Pet Turf
If the pet turf does not have the proper backing, you will inevitably have odor caused by pet urine. The reason for this lingering odor is due to a solid urethane or latex backing system that has small holes punched in every few inches for drainage; many inferior turfs have this. Now think about that: How on earth is the urine going to find the little holes in order to drain?? It’s not. And your dog certainly isn’t going to find them either… The reality is the urine just lives in the artificial turf. Add heat and more urine, and you can just imagine the smell!
Urethane and latex backing systems are not permeable. However, GroTurf’s high quality artificial grass has a 100% permeable Duraflo backing system that is perfect for pet owners. Our product is worth the investment. It’s designed to allow moisture to flow through the ENTIRE backing so you will never have odor issues. “What about #2” you ask? No problem. You won’t be searching for it; it sits right on top and lifts up quite nicely! Since our turf is made with the best yarns available, the fibers will not mat down under the weight and will bounce right back.
Is your dog a “digger”? No worries! Because your existing lawn will be excavated and a layer of limestone screenings is compacted beneath the artificial turf, there aren’t any organic scents for your pet to dig for. We have installed many lawns for dogs that love to dig, and once the artificial lawn is in place, the digging stops!
All of these unique characteristics make GroTurf the only choice for pet turf. Our product is the highest quality and has been engineered with pets in mind making it the best artificial grass for residences, kennels, and boarding facilities alike.

Advantages of Our Product
Concerned about Drainage?
Unlike most turf products that only offer a solid urethane or latex backing with small drainage holes punched in, GroTurf offers a 100% permeable DuraFlo backing system, designed to allow moisture to drain through entirely. This is a major win for dog owners because with the alternative urethane or latex backing, it is very difficult for moisture or urine to diminish through the turf; moisture is left behind which inevitably causes odor. The unique DuraFlo feature is one of the ways GroTurf protects your investment.
WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
“The installation crew was personable, extremely efficient, and did an excellent job of cleaning up before they left. The turf looks fantastic and is plenty durable - I have a large Labrador retriever and an even larger German shepherd, both of which routinely roll around and roughhouse on the turf, and it shows no sign of abuse.”
