Last month we told you about edge creep. That’s what happens when your artificial turf perimeter heaves, hoes, and doesn’t stay in place. Pet turf is just another name for artificial turf. It’s susceptible to edge creep too. For an installation that stays as well as your dog, you need a pet turf perimeter that knows how to sit and stay!
Poorly Installed Artificial Turf Perimeter
So you understand what we are talking about, take a good long look at this black, rolled top type of artificial turf perimeter.
This installation is doomed to failure. See the black rolled top? Well, that’s really ALL you should see.
This type of turf perimeter requires a deep trench. That’s hard work and honestly most installers, professional or DIY’ers don’t take the time and energy to do it right. So they only dig a small “trench” which is nothing more than a mere slot.
Now look at this picture
See how only the top of the black edging is visible?
Guess which one of these two installs was done properly. If you guessed the second one, it’s no guess. It just makes sense.
The artificial turf perimeter in the second picture can’t fall over or heave up. Because it doesn’t require trenching, it’s easy to install it properly. So, properly installed it is!
Why You Care About Your Pet Turf Perimeter
So the whole reason you have a pet turf in the first place is to make like easier for you and your pet.
Pet turf is easy to maintain. Dogs dig pet turf, in the sense they love it. Dogs can’t dig pet turf in the sense they can’t tear it up with digging the way they do natural turf. Good dog!
If you install the wrong pet turf perimeter and are dealing with edge creep in a year or two then you’ve either got to reinstall the perimeter or replace it.
That’s not what “easy to maintain” means.
