How To Maintain Your Artificial Grass
Artificial grass has risen in popularity among homeowners, and it’s not difficult to understand why. A reduced water bill, a vibrant garden all year round and a low-maintenance alternative to natural grass are just some of the perks you enjoy when installing synthetic turf.
That being said, low maintenance doesn’t mean no maintenance. While one of the major benefits of artificial grass is saying goodbye to excessive yard work, you will still need to give your fake grass a little TLC.
To ensure it looks great for years to come, here are our top tips for maintaining your artificial grass:
Give It A Brush
While artificial grass is a great alternative for areas in your garden with high foot traffic (no brown patches here!), it does require a touch-up every now and again to ensure the grass fibres remain upright. While our artificial grass blades are of the highest quality, consistent use could eventually cause the fibres to have difficulty supporting themselves. Don’t worry! A stiff garden broom or our maintenance rake is all you need to get your artificial grass looking great again. To get the best results, brush against the direction of the fibres.
Remove Leaves and Debris
Twigs, dust, leaves and other debris are inevitable no matter where you live. An accumulation of debris could see your artificial lawn look lifeless and make it susceptible to weeds. Keep your grass lush and vibrant by investing in a plastic rake and removing unnecessary debris as you see fit. However, avoid steel or metal rakes, as this could damage your artificial turf.
Avoid Anything Hot
Warmer days mean time outside barbequing with family and friends. While we know you love showing off your beautiful artificial lawn, barbeques and grills should never be placed directly on your artificial grass as this could damage grass fibres. Instead, ensure it’s set up on a fireproof surface or away from your synthetic turf to reduce the risk of hot embers landing on and damaging your grass.
Remove Pet Waste
Thanks to its pet-friendly features, your furry friends may enjoy your artificial lawn a little too much, converting it into their private bathroom. Thankfully, artificial grass makes cleaning up after your pets easy. Avoid lingering odours or stains by picking up pet waste with a bag or rinsing your dog’s regular potty spot with a little water. Easigrass™ artificial grass products are fully porous, so you don’t have to worry about the drainage of water or urine.
