5 Expert-Recommended Sub Base Options for Artificial Grass with Dogs: A Comparative Study

Why a good Sub-Base matters.

As a leading artificial grass company, Prestige Lawns understands the importance of choosing the right sub base for your artificial grass installation, especially if you have furry friends who love spending time outdoors. To help our customers make informed decisions, we conducted a comparative study of the top five sub base options for artificial grass with dogs.

Our study evaluated the sub base options based on their drainage capabilities, durability, and ability to withstand pet activity. We installed each sub base option with our high-quality artificial grass and monitored the performance over a period of six months.

The results were clear – the best sub base for artificial grass with dogs is a combination of crushed granite and granite dust. This sub base option provided excellent drainage, strong support, hygienic and was able to withstand pet activity without any damage to the grass or sub base. 

Other sub base options, such as using solely sharp sand or a plastic grid system, had mixed results. Sharp sand provided ok drainage but over time created odours from dog urine soaking into the sand. The plastic grid system did not provide adequate drainage and lacked the necessary support.

Overall, our study shows that investing in the right sub base is crucial for a long-lasting and durable artificial grass installation, especially if you have dogs. Contact Prestige Lawns today to learn more about our sub base options and how we can help you create the perfect outdoor oasis for you and your furry friends.
