Weeds & Artificial Turf

Artificial turf is a low maintenance landscape alternative that provides you with a perfectly green and pristine lawn through each and every season. Though a synthetic grass lawn comes with a long list of benefits, there can be an issue of weed growth. Being preventative and ensuring your artificial turf installation is done properly is important. There are some tips to take into account when dealing with those pesky weeds.

Though it is rare for weeds to grow back after having artificial turf installed, there are always possibilities along the edges of the turf or seams that weren’t properly established where weeds will be more inclined to pop up due to exposure.

Here are some common lawn weeds that may appear on your artificial turf lawn

  1. Crabgrass

Crabgrass primarily grows in lawn/landscape areas and can rapidly take over someone’s lawn. It usually sprouts in sunny or shady areas during the late Spring and early Summer seasons. Crabgrass is also known as finger-grass or fonio and can grow up to 12 inches in diameter.

  1. Broadleaf

Broadleaf weeds grow in dry or wet soil and can grow as much as a foot in diameter. Because of it’s dissimilarity to natural grass, these weeds are more obvious to point out in any landscape setting. When Broadleaf is left unattended, they can become tough and aggressive that can spread rapidly.

  1. Nutsedge

Nutsedge has shiny, long thin leaves that can sprout to about 2 feet tall. The weeds can become a nuisance because it grows two times the rate of natural grass.  

Solutions:

Applying Herbicide or any weed killer to the soil is always a good option as a pre-installation step to kill off any pre-existing weeds or seeds.

For residences whose backyards or front yards are not occupied by pets, applying weed fabric underneath your artificial turf lawn is also a great option. The weed fabric is a weed suppressor that is designed to prevent weeds from creeping their way through your turf, creating an added layer of protection. Weed fabric isn’t ideal for homes with pets because urine that seeps down into the fabric can cause unpleasant odors over time.

Below are some advantages of using weed fabric:

  • Effective in weed and erosion control
  • UV resistant for sun exposure
  • Water permeability – up to 10 gallons per minute/sq. Ft
  • Resist mildew, rotting and insect invasion
  • Eco-friendly
  • Durable & tear resistant

Artificial turf is manufactured to create a beautiful landscape alternative that eliminates the laborious routines and expenses that burdens households with natural grass. Don’t let those pesky weeds deter you from enjoying your beautiful synthetic grass lawn.
