It’s usually all but impossible for weeds to sprout up through artificial turf. However, they can still grow along the edges of the lawn or where seams are disrupted. If you want to ensure that your new synthetic turf installation doesn’t suffer from pesky weeds each year, ask your turf installer about utilizing a weed barrier.
Weed barriers are installed as an underlayment beneath your synthetic turf blades. They’re strong enough to prevent weeds from taking root, yet they’re porous enough to allow all water and liquid nutrients through to properly drain. They also act as an additional stabilizer and soil separator for your synthetic grass lawn. Weeds are incredibly sneaky, but a properly installed weed barrier will help almost entirely eliminate any weeds that may pop up. If you do see weeds creep up through your turf, they will be few and far between, and they can be easily removed through weeding and an application of pesticide. Weed barrier is best for homeowners without pets, however, since pet waste will seep into the weed barrier fabric and cause odors over time.
