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.
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.
To keep NexGen Lawns K9 synthetic grass for dogs area clean and odor-free we install the proper drainage system that works in conjunction with our rapid flow backing. We also use an all natural in-infill that is applied into the synthetic grass that will not absorb odors. NexGen Lawns K9 synthetic grass for dogs will provide you and your pet a neat and clean area for many years without the worry of muddy paws coming back into your home.

2. Proper Drainage
Choose from our proprietary blend of crushed rock, air panel system or drainage blanket.
3. Odor Control
Infill: ZeoFill Pet Deodorizer.
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 both sufficient for drainage and 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 anti-microbial agents that can affect the longevity of the artificial grass.
NexGen Lawns air panels or our drainage blanket are our most aggressive drainage systems. 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. They are a perfect solution for commercial kennels/doggy day care centers or for residences that have a dog pen with a concrete floor. They separate the K9 artificial grass from the ground or concrete and directs the waste to a predetermined drainage area to reduce odors. Additionally, the drainage blanket has the capacity to evacuate over 4 inches of rain per hour! It is also strong enough to be driven over by a car (we recommend clearing the area of the dogs before testing this yourself) with a compression strength of 25,000 lbs. per square foot.
How is the urine and waste handled?
Our synthetic grass 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 artificial grass.
How do you clean synthetic grass?
Rain is usually sufficient. If necessary, spray your synthetic dog run with a hose.
Can you get rid of pet odors?
Yes. Zeofill Pet Deodorizer Granules™ remove pet urine odors from artificial grass. ZeoFill Pet Deodorizer Granules™ are used as an infill between the blades of grass during installation.
Will my dog think it’s real grass?
Dogs absolutely love it! Many dogs will avoid pea gravel, cement or sand. All dogs love grass, especially NexGen Lawns K9 synthetic grass.
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. We recommend putting extra border stakes around the perimeter of the dog run to discourage dogs from digging.
How do you remove dog hair from synthetic grass?
Saturate the synthetic turf with water. 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.
