How to care for your artificial grass in winter

Artificial grass is celebrated for being low maintenance and extremely resilient, regardless of the season. However, if you want to keep your lawn looking great all year round, it’s still worth doing a few bits of winter TLC to keep the harsh weather at bay.  

So, please read through the following care guide to learn how to look after your artificial grass during the winter months. 

How to care for your artificial grass in winter

Preparing for bad weather 

Is there especially bad weather on the horizon? Keep an eye on the weather forecast. This is because you may want to add that little bit of extra protection for your lawn by placing a waterproof sheet over it until the worst is over. 

Snow, ice and frost 

Artificial grass is highly resilient to cold weather, especially in comparison to natural lawns. A bit of snow on your Easigrass lawn is just fine, but we recommend that you either avoid using it or clear it away if it’s built up too much before it turns into ice. 

Walking or playing on artificial grass that has stiffened from too much snow and ice can potentially cause damage to some grass fibres, as well as being less soft to use for pets and children, so it’s always best to let the snow melt away before using it once again. 

If you don’t wish to wait until it’s melted, you can manually clear away the snow or ice with a plastic shovel – do not use a metal shovel, as it can damage the grass fibres. If the grass has flattened from the snowfall, then gently use a brush to perk it back up and it will be looking as good as new in no time. 

Avoid using salt or chemicals to melt the snow as this may disrupt the drainage system of your artificial lawn. 

Rain and moisture 

Winter can bring a lot of moisture from rain, snow and frost – and you might be wondering what impact that will have on the quality of your artificial lawn. 

Luckily, artificial grass lawns from Easigrass can withstand waterlogging without a problem, thanks to their unique design and efficient drainage system. This means that unlike natural grass, there will be no pooling on your lawn during times of high precipitation. 

Regular maintenance 

The big appeal of artificial lawns is that you can spend more time enjoying them and less time maintaining them. Though it’s still wise to ensure your lawn receives regular maintenance. 

In times of high leaf fall, make sure to regularly remove this buildup with a gentle brush, with a leaf blower or by hand to ensure that it doesn’t rot onto the grass fibres and result in mould or weeds forming. Avoid using a rake as the metal prongs can be a tad harsh. 

You may also wish to occasionally use a soft brush to perk up the fibres if they have become a little damp or flat during the snowy months.
