ProGreen Artificial Grass for Dogs
View our Dog Grass Gallery
Your Dogs Deserve the Best, and Dogs Love ProGreen Synthetic Grass!
Nobody knows pet turf like ProGreen. We started installing synthetic putting greens in 1987 and soon discovered that they weren't just for putting... dogs loved to do their business on them! Since then we've been experimenting with ways to create the ultimate synthetic grass for pets.
Manufacturing a grass that can withstand the rigors of dozens of dogs running and scratching as well as controlling odor presented many challenges - especially at dog kennels. After many years of research and development we have designed the ultimate synthetic grass system for dogs.
To keep your pet's area clean and odor-free we install a proper under-drain system that works in conjunction with our grass' rapid-flow backing. We also use an all natural infill that is brushed into the fibers of the synthetic grass. Nothing beats ProGreen artificial turf for dogs!
The ProGreen K9 System
1. ProGreen K9 Synthetic Grass
High grade synthetic grass designed exclusively for dogs. Choose from K9 Deluxe 60 or K9 Rugged 50.
2. Proper Drainage
ProGreen's proprietary blend of crushed rock or Shark Drainage Blanket™.
3. Odor Control
Infill:ProGreen Pet Deodorizer™ (Zeolyte).
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 drya 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 turf 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.
Shark Drainage Blanket™
The Shark Drainage Blanket™ is our most aggressive drainage system. It is typically used in heavy rainfall areas, terrain with less than 2% slope, or indoors over concrete where it provides the ultimate in odor control. It is a perfect solution for commercial kennels/doggy day care centers or for residences that have a dog pen with a concrete floor. Our Shark™ Drainage Blanket separates the 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 compressive strength of 25,000 lbs. per square foot.

Frequently Asked Questions About Synthetic Grass Dog Runs
How is the urine and waste handled?Our Synthetic Grass System 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 ProGreen 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. ProGreen Pet Deodorizer Granules™ remove pet urine odors from artificial grass. ProGreen 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, including ProGreen 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. 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.
