How to look after artificial grass
Easigrass artificial grass is designed and tested to withstand the best and worst of the weather, as the ultimate low-maintenance natural lawn alternative. To keep your artificial grass lawns in perfect condition for that flawless all year-round look, however, some regular maintenance care is needed. Easigrass offers a full annual professional artificial grass maintenance package nationwide, but here’s some tips and advice on keeping your garden clean and green.
Artificial Grass Brushes
As with real grass, heavy use of the lawn may lead to some areas looking a little depressed or flattened. A stiff brush will help to lift the fibres. Imprints from the garden will lift naturally in time, but if required, a brush of the fibres will usually bring lift back into the lawn. All Easigrass installations are completed with a stabilising infill of silica sand or ZeoFill to help keep bounce and stability in the fibres.
Weed and Debris Removal
Regular artificial grass maintenance will help prevent a build-up of debris, moss and weeds. A protective membrane weed barrier is fitted prior to grass installation, though some weeds may still appear over time. Remove fallen leaves and dust debris with a stiff brush, leaf blower or plastic rake. Avoid using a metal rake as this may damage the turf fibres.
If airborne spore or seeds appear both on the edging and in the turf, simply pluck them out, and use a gentle weed killer to prevent them from re-growing. Overhanging branches and bushes can be cut back to prevent excessive leaf drop.
