SPG-DOG was designed for pet lawns, dog breeder’s pens, and outdoor kennels. The special UltraFlo backing with drainage everywhere in the backing provides much greater drainage than typical artificial grass backing which has only a few holes per square foot. This makes it easy for rainfall or a garden hose to flush away dog waste, as do the shorter height blades. But it also makes attractive lawns, and often is used for an entire back yard, with the front yard covered with a taller artificial turf wherever dogs aren’t a concern.
StarPro's Ultra-Flo Backing has drainage holes everywhere making our artificial grass your best choice for pet-friendly lawns. Dog waste easily drains with rainfall or a garden hose because Ultra-Flo drains 6+ inches of water per minute! Click to see StarPro's grasses with Ultra-Flo:

SHIPPING INSPECTION - Please inspect your turf package carefully before accepting delivery from the shipping carrier. If you see tears in the plastic packaging, make sure the turf is not damaged. If the turf is damaged, do not accept and tell the shipper you are rejecting due to shipping damage.
How to Compare Grass
Quality is best with higher grass blade height and density (total blade weight in a square yard, measured in ounces.)
INSTALLATION - Read or download How To Install Artificial Grass. Here's a summary: Cut any existing grass with a weed eater to the soil. Remove debris. Adjust soil to desired grade and compact. Add 2" of 3/8" minus gravel screenings, meaning your gravel supplier has passed gravel through a 3/8" screen so only the smallest pieces pass through. This mix has small particles as well as gravel up to 3/8" and every size in between. You'll need about 12 pounds of gravel per square foot. Use a concrete rake or drag a 3-foot 2x4 across the gravel to level it where needed. Do not use pea gravel or sand. This gravel base will promote drainage and provide a smooth surface. Compact the gravel base with a water-filled roller or plate compactor rented from your home store. Use a hand tamper for small areas. Artificial grass comes in 15-foot wide rolls and the manufacturing process causes blades to lean in one direction (the grain). Before you cut grass into pieces, plan your cuts so when all pieces are laid side by side their grain always faces the same direction to avoid obvious seams. Plan ahead by making a drawing of your lawn area to calculate how to cut grass to keep the grain in one direction. Synthetic grass can be cut with a razor knife or carpet knife (best if cut from the back side). Grass pieces are joined with seam tape.

Let adhesive dry before staking grass in the next step. For soft or sandy soil, nail the grass edges every 6 to 12 inches using nylon or plastic 8” landscape spikes or 6” metal nails that are galvanized to deter rusting. For hard soil you can nail edges every 12 inches using landscape spikes or galvanized 4” nails. Add extra nails in high traffic areas. Use a soft rake, brush, or power rake against the grain to stand the grass blades up. Infilling the grass with medium to coarse sand is highly recommended. It improves the look, weight, feel, drainage, life expectancy, and makes the blades stand up straight. Once the seam glue is dry, pour 1/2″ of sand between blades and rake them so they stand straight. You’ll need about 3 pounds of sand per square foot.
