How to Maintain Your Artificial Grass In The Fall

Maintaining synthetic grass is very simple. It is far less involved than maintaining natural grass, but it’s important to know that at least some maintenance is required. One of the many benefits of artificial grass is that you will save plenty of time and money by not having to mow, fertilize, or heavily water your lawn to have a lush, green yard. Synthetic grass clean up is easy, effective and fast!

The amount of maintenance required depends on your specific situation. If you have a landscape that experiences pets and/or children or are surrounded by trees or live in a dusty area, your landscape might require a little more cleanup effort. If you have a landscape that does not include as much vegetation or does not experience much foot traffic, maintenance will be a faster process.

As with any landscape, a little TLC does go a long way when it comes to caring for your artificial lawn. Here are a few activities required to keep artificial grass looking great and performing well not only in autumn but year-round:

Clear Leaves and Debris
Take time out to remove the debris on your grass often. This will keep your lawn in top shape. Removing debris regularly is especially important during the autumn because it’s the time of the year that leaves begin to fall. Use a rake or leaf blower to clear off fallen leaves, branches, and other rotting debris that may land on top of their artificial grass. This will help maintain a clean and groomed look and extend the life of your turf lawn.

Introduce Some H20
Gently spray down your lawn each week with a hose to remove dust, dirt, or pollen. Be sure not to use too much pressure. Occasionally watering your synthetic grass lawn also helps prevent unequal distributions of infill.

Clean Up After Any Messes
Your lawn is meant to be used and we encourage everyone to enjoy it to the fullest. Don’t worry about staining your yard with spills of any sort. Our artificial grass is stain- resistant and most spills can be washed away with a bit of water. For tougher stains, use a mild soap with lukewarm water or use equal parts vinegar and water to scrub it out. The faster you tend to a spill or stain the better. Tending to a spill right away will help prevent any permanent staining and preserve the long-term cleanliness of your yard. Synthetic grass allows you to enjoy your backyard with peace of mind, so feel free to enjoy regular family barbeques or invite some friends over for a cocktail party.
Artificial grass is safe for pets and cleaning up their solid waste is just as easy as on real grass, so plastic bags and pooper scoopers work just fine! Following pickup, hose down the target area. In addition, weekly rinsing will help your lawn smell fresh and odor-free. Synthetic Grass Warehouse also offers Turf Fresh and Zeolite Max to further eliminate any unpleasant odors caused by pets.

Synthetic Turf Pool Decks

Artificial grass is now the new norm for lawns, golf courses, playgrounds, and sports fields. It’s durability, versatility, and low maintenance qualities have made it an obvious choice for many residential and commercial landscaping projects. For many homeowners, artificial turf pool decking provides a functional landscape alternative that offers a beautiful and vibrant appearance. Whether you’re looking to install a new backyard swimming pool or renovate your existing one, choosing synthetic grass for your pool deck will enhance your backyard while offering unparalleled functionality and durability.

 

Lower Maintenance

One of synthetic turf’s main benefits is that it never needs to be mowed, trimmed, fertilized or otherwise regularly maintained. Keeping toxic chemicals away from your pool water will make it a safer and cleaner environment for your family and friends to enjoy. This also means that no dirt or lawn trimmings will be tracked into your pool water and clogged in your filter.

 

Drainage Capabilities

Artificial turf’s drainage capabilities are another reason that makes it the perfect landscaping solution for pool decks. Artificial grass can handle excessive water due to its ultra-efficient drainage system. Most of our artificial turf products have a drainage rate of 30 inches per hour per square foot, while some of our select products feature a clear permeable backing with a rate of up to 440 inches! With drainage systems like these, our artificial turf products eliminate the issues of dirt, mud, and slippery surfaces. Even after a full day of swimming, your synthetic turf will be dry within the hour and pristine as it was before.

Easy Ways to Extend Your Artificial Turf’s Lifespan

Artificial grass is a leading landscape solution throughout the country because it offers durability and low-maintenance aesthetic appeal for years after installation. This long-term investment provides reliable ROI, and like any other property investment, you want to make sure that you get the most for your money. Synthetic Grass Warehouse offers an industry-leading 15-year warranty on all of our artificial grass products. However, you can easily extend the lifespan of your artificial grass well past these 15 years if you take the proper steps during installation and in the years following.

 

Choose the Right Artificial Grass Product

Synthetic Grass Warehouse offers dozens of artificial grass varieties that cover a wide range of functions. From long and lush showpiece grass to ultra-durable pet turf, choosing the right turf product for you is a crucial part of the installation process. If you install a synthetic grass option that isn’t well-suited to your home or business’s unique needs, you may find that it suffers more wear and tear than you were expecting. Consult with your installer during the initial stages of the process to ensure that you choose an artificial grass product with the right pile height, face weight, and functionality for what you need long-term.

 

Use a Reliable Installer

How long your artificial turf lasts isn’t entirely determined by the turf itself. A low-quality installation can become matted, dirty, and worn much more quickly than a high-quality one. If you’ve decided to have synthetic grass installed in your home or business, do your due diligence in researching local installers. Look for industry veterans who have 5-star reviews and years in the business. Some landscapers think that artificial grass installation is something that anyone can do; however, this isn’t the case. Expert artificial grass installation will make your turf look better and last longer than a cheap, rushed job will.

 

By pairing industry-leading artificial grass products with trusted, experienced installers, you can achieve a synthetic grass installation that lasts you for decades to come. Protecting your investment begins with the decisions you make during installation. Proper care and maintenance is important, but it will ultimately be futile if you start off on the wrong foot. For guidance in choosing the right artificial grass variety for your next project, contact your local Synthetic Grass Warehouse facility today.

Why TigerCool Artificial Grass is Perfect for Summer Fun!

The summer heat can be a double-edged sword. The warm weather makes you want to go outside and soak up the sun’s rays, but sweltering heat can also cause your grass and other surfaces to become uncomfortably hot and even dangerous. Luckily, Synthetic Grass Warehouse offers innovative TigerCool artificial grass with temperature-control technology to help you stay cool and have fun all summer long.

 

Developed by TigerTurf and Tencate, TigerCool has revolutionized the synthetic grass industry. TigerCool is a first-of-its-kind technology that controls and reduces the temperature of artificial grass surfaces by up to 15 percent. In early variations of artificial grass, temperatures on the lawn’s surface could often reach more than 175 degrees. Not only is this uncomfortable for you to walk on, but it also poses a health hazard for your small children and pets. However, through years of extensive research and development, TigerTurf and Tencate have manufactured a superior synthetic grass product that will remain significantly cooler under the summer sun. This enhanced comfort allows you to enjoy outdoor activities with your friends and family without any of the pain or discomfort associated with overheated outdoor surfaces.

 

TigerCool works using UV inhibitors and heat-reflecting color pigments. Normally, dark color pigments such as those used in artificial grass will absorb the sun’s infrared light and convert it into heat. This high level of heat buildup increases surface temperatures and makes them uncomfortable to walk, run, or play on. TigerCool synthetic turf, however, uses color pigments that reflect the sun’s light rather than absorbing it, reducing heat buildup dramatically and thereby lowering surface temperature up to 10 degrees. With a TigerCool synthetic grass lawn, every member of the family can get outside and enjoy some summer fun.

 

TigerCool is incorporated in our best-selling Diamond and Marquee series. Both lines offer multiple products that suit every need, from light to heavy foot traffic. Pile heights range from 1.75 inches to 1.875 inches, and face weights vary from 60 ounces to 75 ounces. All of our products are safe for children, pet-friendly, and non-toxic, so nothing has to stop your favorite summer activities.

How to Utilize Turf for Indoor Athletic Facilities

The benefits of artificial grass for outdoor spaces such as backyards and sports fields are well known. The enhanced aesthetic appeal and improved durability make it an ideal solution for a range of landscaping options. However, indoor athletic facilities are another area where synthetic grass can be utilized to the fullest. More and more, health clubs and training facilities are taking advantage of artificial turf’s visual appeal and functionality in order to create a workout space that can accommodate nontraditional workouts and meet customer demands.

Whether it’s a batting cage, an athletic field, or a conditioning gym, any type of indoor sports facility can benefit from the unique traits of artificial grass. It’s designed to be highly durable, so it can withstand hours, days, and months of high foot traffic while resisting wear and tear. High-quality turf products won’t develop holes, tears, or discoloration, enduring better than rubber flooring or natural grass. It can also be installed with an eco-friendly foam underlayer which reduces pressure on the joints and minimizes shock. It also reduces the impact of falls and the risk of injuries for safer workouts. Enhanced safety and wellbeing are always a good selling point for indoor athletic facilities of any kind.

Synthetic turf is also beneficial for indoor facilities due to its low maintenance requirements. There’s no need for the grass to receive sunlight to stay green, making it perfect for indoor use. It doesn’t need to be watered or trimmed, and its ultra-efficient drainage makes spills and messes a non-issue. Our artificial grass products can also be installed with an antimicrobial infill which prevents the spreading of germs and harmful bacteria, a prevalent concern for athletic facilities.

When you choose synthetic grass for your indoor sports facility, you can rest assured that you’re receiving a quality product that can accommodate any need. Here at Synthetic Grass Warehouse, all of our products are non-toxic, lead-free, and backed by the best warranty in the industry. For turf that’s as tough as you are, choose Synthetic Grass Warehouse for your gym or field.

How to Care for Artificial Grass in Snowy Weather

Many homeowners throughout the US love artificial grass landscaping for its ability to withstand cold weather and come out of winter unscathed. Whereas natural grass will die off in extreme conditions, artificial turf won’t be damaged by frost or other winter weather such as heavy rain or hail. However, your synthetic grass does require proper care in order to ensure that it is in peak condition for spring and summer fun.

 

While artificial grass won’t get damaged on its own due to frost, the blades can become brittle if they freeze. If these brittle blades are walked on, damage can occur. While artificial grass blades are very resilient, they’re not completely indestructible. It’s best to allow all of the snow and frost to melt and drain naturally through the perforated backing before resuming backyard activities. If you do have to walk across your turf while it’s frozen, take extra care while walking in order to avoid breaking or damaging any blades.

 

A covering of snow, unlike complete freezing, won’t affect your ability to walk on the turf. You are able to walk and play on snowy artificial grass without worrying about fibers breaking. However, you shouldn’t allow the snow to pile up too much or the compacted snow will turn into ice and become dangerous. Remove packed snow either by hand or with a plastic shovel. After the snow has fallen and melted, your grass may be slightly matted from the weight of the snow. However, it should bounce back naturally over time. Help lift the pile by cross-brushing it as you would during any other time of year. This extra push will help return the appearance of your turf to normal more quickly. 

 

One way that many homeowners melt ice and snow is by using salt. However, when it comes to artificial grass, we advise against using salt; instead, let the snow melt naturally. Salt can clog up the holes in the backing of your turf and hinder your lawn’s full drainage capabilities. If you do need to use salt for any reason, use it sparingly and very occasionally. Your turf will be fine to use after snowy weather if you allow it to take care of itself and avoid the temptation to speed up the process. 

 

With winter rapidly approaching, it’s advisable that all homeowners with artificial grass know how to properly care for their lawn throughout the season. Artificial turf is an excellent landscaping solution for properties in areas with extreme weather due to its ability to withstand anything from the driest climate to arctic blasts. If you’re seeking a low-maintenance landscaping solution that will stay evergreen and pristine through anything, nothing beats SGW artificial grass. We have one of the biggest inventory selections in the industry, and all of our products come with an unbeatable 15-year warranty.
