If you are like most dog owners, then you are constantly dealing with problem lawns from your dogs digging them up, yellow stained grass and tracking muddy paw prints on the carpet, just to name a few. There is now a solution to having a dog and an attractive lawn. It is called FieldTurf™.
You may have been exposed to this synthetic turf while watching an NFL game or maybe your kids play on one of the many high schools that have a FieldTurf football field. You could have seen this turf in one of the 800 locations where FieldTurf is installed around town, like Sea World, LEGOLAND, the SD Zoo or Wild Animal Park.
Although it was created for sports fields, FieldTurf has been identified as a great product for dog owners as well. In fact, the San Diego Humane Society has it installed at their Gaines Street location. Your local Animal Keeper has discovered its viability and has it installed in all three locations (Poway, Oceanside & Encinitas).
These, and other dog-boarding facilities, along with over 800 residential customers have installed FieldTurf due to its durability and drainage capabilities. Dogs can’t dig through it or tear it up. Their urine drains right through and doesn’t stain. Droppings are simply scooped up or hosed off. It is also non-toxic to pets and kids. For some dog owners, it is a last resort to having a great looking lawn!
As Darlene White of the San Diego Animal Support Foundation, a longtime customer puts it, “As a foster parent for large dogs, in addition to two large dogs of my own, I can’t tell you how much this product has changed my life! During the past few years, I have sodded my yard four times. Now that I have FieldTurf in my yard, unruly dogs can’t dig up the lawn, and dog urine isn’t causing unsightly yellow spots, which inevitably lead to muddy patches. Honestly, I think this is one of the greatest gifts dog owners could give to themselves!
The local distributor of FieldTurf is a company called EasyTurf. Located in Escondido, EasyTurf is the exclusive Southern California dealer for the residential and commercial market. “85% of our customers are dog owners”, states David Hartman, EasyTurf’s President. “Going into this, I didn’t realize what a tremendous product this would be for dog owners. It seems like every installation we do, is for a home that has a dog!”
