Artificial Turf is a Greener-than-Grass Alternative for Military Mutts

As part of a larger project, Luke Military Base in Arizona will be adding artificial turf to its dog training unit. Natural grass is difficult to keep healthy in the hot Arizona sun but the artificial turf is durable and is easier on the dogs' paws than bare pavement.

The artificial turf installation will save on water and maintenance and since it doesn’t need fertilizers and weed-killers, it’s greener than grass. A rain water collector and other eco-friendly items that may include solar panels are also on the base’s improvement project list.
