What about pets and their mess?
Pets love the feel of the artificial lawn, as far as their mess like normal, you pick up solids and let urine simply wash away through the base of the lawn and bluemetal dust. Urine does not affect the colour of the lawn as it chemical resistant. You can always wash the lawn if you feel it necessary with a hose or even a pressure washer.

Leisure Lawn has 100 drainage holes per m2 in the base of the lawn. When it rains the water simply runs through the lawn and drains away through the bluemetal dust. If in an area that has high water run-off towards the lawn careful consideration should be given to preparation of the base before lawn is laid, drains can be used to prevent any flooding.
