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 barbecues 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 TurFresh and Zeolite Max to further eliminate any unpleasant odors caused by pets.
