Keep calm & get rid of the urine smell in your backyard.

Synthetic grass that has been urinated on repeatedly by your pets (usually dogs) is likely to start smelling quite strongly, especially on hot or humid days where the uric acid crystals (the source of the urine smell) are activated and release the odour.

Artificial grass is usually built on a crush rock and sand base with small holes in the material to allow for drainage.  Urine tends to seep through the grass, into the rock and sand. When urine dries, it crystalises and it is these uric acid crystals that are difficult to remove.

Conventional cleaners and water will not break down the non-soluble uric acid crystals and they will remain. Only a bio-enzymatic formulation like the one found in urineFREE will remove uric acid crystals for good. urineFREE’s bio-enzymatic action is designed to “eat” these crystals along with the water soluble components of urine.

urineFREE or backyardFRESH?

We recommend using a combination of urineFREE as the main treatment to remove urine odours; and BackyardFRESH as a more affordable “touch up” to maintain results for longer (and cheaper).

urineFREE is an all-in-one urine stain & smell remover that removes all urine — cat urine, dog urine, other pet & human urine.

BackyardFRESH is not a urine remover, it is a high performance odour eliminator. 

How much product to use?

The amount of product you are going to need depends on the amount of urine that has been deposited and the porosity of your synthetic lawn.

A dog (depending on size) can urinate anywhere between 200-2000ml each day — therefore we cannot recommend an exact quantity as every case is different. 

If your pet is going to revisit this lawn, complete removal can be costly but regular maintenance will help reduce the long term odours. 

How to remove urine from synthetic grass

Keep calm and saturate the grass with urineFREE so that it penetrates into the drainage holes where the urine has seeped and can make contact to remove the underlying urine odour.
