If you're not a fan of mowing the lawn or you have young kids or dogs, there are various alternatives to grass out there that provide an easy-to-maintain option for smaller gardens. Unfortunately, standard artificial turf won't always stand the test of time when muddy dog paws are thrown into the mix.

However, The Home Depot has launched a brand new pet-proof turf, which could be a solution for those with lively dogs who love running around and digging.

The home improvement retailer was given the task of pet-proofing the show floor for last weekend’s Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. So it created the Lifeproof with PetProof Technology Artificial Turf. 

The dog-friendly turf is available exclusively at The Home Depot and could be a great option for pet lovers. It made its official debut at the Westminster Dog Show in the Agility Demo Area. 

The new turf is made with fibers that resist stains and eliminate brown spots, while also preventing dogs from digging. It also maintains a consistent appearance, even under heavy use, and doesn’t require any chemical applications, protecting pets from exposure to any harmful products. 

In terms of keeping it clean, liquid pet waste passes through and will not puddle. It also won't attract pests like ants, fleas, or ticks.

Since the artificial turf separates the dogs from dirt and dust, your dogs will not get dirty or muddy. Not only does this make for a clean outside space, but also reduces the need for cleanup when they come back indoors as paws stay clean, which means so do floors, equipment, cages, and mats.

If you have a dog that loves to dig, this pet-proof turf could be one of the best low-maintenance garden ideas for your space. The turf prevents dogs from digging and maintains a consistent appearance, even under heavy use.  

When it comes to care, Lifeproof with Petproof Technology Artificial Turf makes maintaining healthy-looking backyard ideas easy. It also maintains a consistent color, unlike natural grass that can turn brown.

Lastly, with artificial turf, you eliminate the need to water the yard or add any chemicals or fertilizers. It will stay green all year round.

The Lifeproof Turf with Petproof Technology will hit HomeDepot.com this weekend and has a 15-year warranty.
