Firstly make sure you have a good free draining base, add more drainage if necessary.
You don’t have to use any infill but we always like using an infill as it add’s weight to the grass and helps keep it in place. All these infills have their place but we would always recommend Envirofill, it’s a great product and help to reduces the dogs smells, it has Microban technology, an antibacterial and is guaranteed to keep working for 16 years, there’s no other product like it on the market .
Fourthly use a cleaner, there’s loads out there, we sell them or we can tell you where to get them. Nothing in this world is totally maintenance free. Envirofill will help reduce the multiplication of bacteria but a enzyme cleaner can still be required.
Now I appreciate there’s a lot take in here so if you need more information please feel free to give us a call or pop into one of our showrooms.
The bottom line is, artificial grass is great for you and great for your dog, just do the “MAINTENANCE”
