To develop this low-maintenance dog park for the city of Miami, Duraflex and XGrass installed synthetic surfacing solutions that would withstand rain, hot temperatures, and the heavy abuse of dogs at play.
Duraflex bonded rubber was used for walkways throughout the dog park. Owners can take their dogs on walks, or sit back and watch their dogs pal around with other pets.
To minimize maintenance, many trees in the park were surrounded completely by the synthetic grass, but others featured tree wells made from Duraflex bonded rubber mulch. The brown rubber mulch provided a very natural look yet required no maintenance.
Blanche dog park originally featured natural grass, but with inclement weather and constant activity from the dogs, the park started to turn into a giant mud bath. The project specifiers chose an XGrass pet turf system, which is constructed from highly durable fibers, a proprietary TruFlo backing, and an anti-microbial Envirofill infill. This new surface provides a clean, healthy, mud-free playing surface for the dogs at Blanche Park.
Anyone who has visited Florida knows how flat it is but Blanche Park featured a natural mound that park managers wanted to keep in the new design. Typically, synthetic grass is laid on very flat surfaces, but XGrass developed a design and installation plan to allow park operators to keep the mounds, aptly named "Hound Hills."
