Help to keep your pets safe with artificial turf by eliminating lawn toxins.

According to the ASPCA, a warm-weather danger is the yard products from weed killers, pest controls, and lawn fertilizers that people place in their lawns.  These items can be very dangerous to pets due to the toxic chemicals they contain.  Therefore, changing your grass lawn to artificial turf means you no longer have to spread out hazardous lawn chemicals.  This means you’ll help keep your pets safe during the summer months.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding toxic chemicals or also plants, please call ASPCA 24/7 Animal Poison Control Center or your local veterinarian clinic.  ASPCA also has an informative listing of toxic plants and flowers to dogs and cats, as well as a safe non-toxic listing for pets.  NexGen Lawns aims to always keep safety a priority for your pets.  That’s why artificial turf is the best answer to provide a pet-friendly yard.  Artificial grass gives pets a clean and safe area to play without ever worrying about dangerous fertilizers or weed killers.  Our turf requires no maintenance and can be easily washed clean.
