If you want a good quality pet turf that’s free of toxic chemicals, pesticides and insecticides, you’ll need to pay close attention to where you buy.
Here’s what you need to know about pet turf and its health risks.

But it’s no surprise that its popularity is rising, with demand rising by 40 per cent year-on-year to almost 6 million tonnes in 2018, according to the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council.
This means that if you’re looking to buy pet turf from a local retailer, you need a clear idea of what you’re getting into, and what you’ll get out of it.
For one thing, there’s a great deal of confusion around the terms used to describe pet turf, according the British Association of Pet Stores and Lawn Care.
Some sellers use terms like “grass” and “grass-covered” while others use “mote-covered”, or “termed soil”.
So if you are looking for a pet turf product that meets the requirements of the UK Food Standards Agency, you should be aware of the difference between these two terms.
For example, if you purchase turf from the Natural Environment Council, the company will also specify what is referred to as the “ground cover” (which is essentially the soil surface beneath the turf).
This includes the “surface to soil” ratio, or “surface area”.
So if your turf has a 1:1 ratio, it is “terred”, meaning the soil is covered with a high proportion of turf, and the ground cover is less than 1:2.
But if you look at the label of a similar product, it will state that it is a turf “termented” product.
In this case, the soil will be covered with soil that has been treated to make it harder for pests to grow on.
There are also some things to be aware about when it comes to the terms “fertile soil” and similar terms.
If you buy turf from an online retailer, it should specify the species of turf it contains.
For example, the Natural Environmental Council would normally recommend “grass”, but if you buy it from an organic seller, it could be something else entirely.
In Australia, the term “territory” is used more frequently.
But you needn’t worry if you get a product that looks like it came from a farm.
The terms “terrified soil” or “grass ground” are often used when talking about turf that is treated to improve soil quality.
But in most cases, the turf is still considered to meet the standards for a healthy lawn.
It’s also worth knowing that pet turf comes with a “certificate of organic quality”, which is a type of certificate that will state whether the turf has been inspected for pest control and insecticide residues.
This certifies that the turf was produced by an organic supplier who are in compliance with organic and pesticide regulations.
So if you can identify a product from a supplier who is in compliance, it can help you make an informed decision.
And for pet turf to be considered healthy, it needs to be treated with the proper amount of pesticide.
According to the Australian Pest Management Council, organic and non-organic turf are considered to have acceptable levels of pesticide residues, and are not likely to cause serious health problems.
You’ll also need to check the ingredients of pet turf before buying.
A lot of pet owners, like the owners of cats and dogs, may be concerned about the chemicals they are exposed to, especially pesticides.
This is because they’re often used on the lawn, which means the chemicals can be sprayed onto the turf and the residue left on the turf.
So you’ll want to check if the product you buy contains a variety of pesticides that are approved for use in pets.
You can also ask a vet for advice on what the best pesticide for your particular situation is.
The Australian Pestic Management Council has a website that provides advice on the best way to use pesticides for your pets.
And you can check with your local council for any advice on pesticide use for pets.
But it’s worth remembering that there are also a lot of variables to consider when buying turf, so be sure to get advice from a vet.
