artificial grass for dogs

Give your home a lawn and provide a safe dog space with NexGen Lawns artificial grass for dogs. A dog may be man’s best friend, but when it comes to your yard that poses different challenges. From digging and scratching, dead spots in the grass, muddy paw prints coming into your house, and grass that will not grow from your K9’s favorite path. Maintaining a natural yard can be very difficult to do, and that’s where NexGen Lawns’ artificial grass for dogs comes in. Fake grass for dogs stops dog-destroyed yards covered in ruts and mud. Plus, with an artificial grass lawn, you will never have to mow or apply harmful fertilizers.

Manufacturing an artificial grass that could withstand the rigors of dozens of dogs running and scratching as well as controlling odor was challenging, especially for dog kennels. After many years of research and development, our ultimate synthetic grass system for dogs was developed. NexGen Lawns artificial grass for dogs is built with strong synthetic fibers. These fibers can handle heavy traffic, especially four-legged traffic. Our K9 synthetic grass for dogs features a reinforced backing to provide your space with a strong backing to handle active pets.

NexGen Lawns artificial grass for dogs features low sheen and luster fibers for the most realistic-looking lawn.  With fake grass for dogs, dogs will experience a soft grass fiber surface.  Not a hard or cold surface like pea gravel or concrete that hurts dog paws.  Our K9 synthetic grass for dogs also contains ultraviolet inhibitors for UV protection.  As a result, this helps to prevent yarn from fading in the sun, drying, or cracking.  You and your dog can enjoy a beautiful lawn for years to come.  Most importantly, our artificial grass and synthetic turf are 100% lead-free.

Fake Grass for Dogs – Your Dogs Deserve the Best, and you deserve a cleaner yard!

To keep NexGen Lawns’ fake grass for dogs area clean and odor-free we install the proper drainage system that works in conjunction with our rapid flow backing.  Drainage is very important for dog runs and kennels.  Without proper drainage, lawns become soaked and mud-covered.  Mud is then tracked back inside homes and businesses.  By choosing NexGen Lawns artificial grass for dogs, you will never have to worry about muddy paws again!  Additionally, drainage helps to keep the ground free of pet urine.

NexGen Lawns artificial grass for dogs will provide you and your pet with a neat and clean area for many years without the worry of muddy paws coming back into your home.  We also use an all-natural infill that is applied to the synthetic grass that will not absorb odors.  The Envirofill infill has an antimicrobial coating that helps to prevent smelly pet odors.  Additionally, natural infills are safe for pets and children.  Nothing beats a NexGen Lawns K9 Synthetic Grass Pet System!

DRAINAGE: Two Systems to Choose From


Proprietary Crushed Stone Base

Our proprietary crushed stone base is a more affordable yet, effective drainage system.  Our stone mix was created to allow for maximum drainage to keep the synthetic grass dry and free of urine.  We have found that a depth of 3″ to 4″ inches is sufficient for drainage and is also cost-effective.

Don’t be fooled by other artificial grass companies that advertise the elimination of pet odors with overpriced anti-microbial agents built into the turf yarn.  Pet urine always leaves bacteria behind that will proliferate if left untreated, with or without built-in antimicrobial agents that can affect the longevity of the artificial grass.  Therefore, choose NexGen Lawns’ premium-developed artificial grass for dogs!

Artificial Grass Draining System



Air Panel System

Artificial Grass Draining System Air Panel

NexGen Lawns air panel system is our most aggressive drainage system.  They are typically used in heavy rainfall areas, terrain with less than 2% slope, or indoors over concrete where it provides the ultimate in odor control.  Thus, they are a perfect solution for commercial spaces including dog kennels, doggy daycare centers, training facilities, and veterinary clinics.  Also, they work for residences that have a dog pen with a concrete floor or heavily used outdoor spaces.

Frequently Asked Questions About K9 Synthetic Grass for Dogs, Artificial Grass for Dogs, and Fake Grass for Dogs

How are the dog urine and waste handled with K9 turf?

Our synthetic grass for dogs is not much different from natural grass.  Urine washes through the system into the Drainage Blanket or the specially formulated crushed rock sub-base below.  Waste can be removed using your current process; only it tends to be less messy with the NexGen Lawns K9 turf.

How do you clean synthetic grass?

Rain is usually sufficient.  If necessary, spray your synthetic pet grass with a garden hose.  For a deodorizer and cleaner, PE-51 Artificial Grass Cleaner is an all-natural product that is simple to apply.  It easily attaches to the garden hose to spray down the turf to help eliminate unwanted odors.

Can you get rid of pet odors in pet turf?

Yes. Envirofill antimicrobial green infill helps to block bacteria from forming in artificial grass.  Envirofill is used as an infill between the blades of artificial grass during installation.  This product is all-natural and helps to stop dog odors.

Will my dog think fake grass is real grass?

Dogs absolutely love fake grass!  Many dogs will avoid pea gravel, cement, or sand.  Due to the areas being hard and hurtful on their sensitive paws.  All dogs love grass, especially NexGen Lawns fake grass for dogs.  It provides them with a clean safe play space.

Will my dog try to dig a hole through the synthetic grass?

Some dogs will try to dig through anything.  Our dog run turf is extremely durable with a double-coated backing making it almost impossible to tear – but there can be exceptions.  Therefore, we recommend putting a plastic nailer board around the perimeter of the dog run to discourage dogs from digging.

How do you remove dog hair from synthetic grass?

Saturate the pet turf with water.  Then, immediately follow with a soft-bristled push broom or a turf rake.  Brush with the grain of the fibers.  Fibers tend to lean more towards one direction than the other.  Holding the push broom snug against your belt, start at one end and walk the broom to the opposite side.  Don’t use brush strokes.  This should remove most of the hair.

How does the artificial grass drainage system work?

Each installation of our NexGen Lawns artificial grass product comes with a bonafide drainage system that makes waste management easier, no matter what your current process is. Without the common problems of natural grass and lesser artificial turfs that can bunch, tear or pool the gross stuff for extensive cleanup at a later time, our artificial grass drainage system whisks away any urine out of sight and leaves waste easily visible for quick and worry-free cleanup.

What is the difference between drainage systems?

NexGen Lawns provides two artificial grass drainage systems to meet your exact need. Our proprietary crushed-stone base is the perfect solution for outdoor use and maintenance-free installation with a carefully designed filtering and waste management system that utilizes synthetic grass, Envirofill, PU backing, decomposed granite, drainage rock, and a wire mesh on top of real soil for a more natural look and behavior. Our air panel system is great for areas with heavy rainfall, flat areas (less than 2% slope), or indoor use with artificial grass set on top of a breathable base that always keeps the top layer dry — even under heavy use or precipitation.
