Maintenance to the synthetic turf is minimal. An occasional brooming is recommended, but not necessary. Brooming will stand the fibers of the artificial grass up and even out the infill materials. Debris like leaves and twigs can be easily removed with a leaf blower or by hand. As long as the leaf blower nozzle is not placed too close to the synthetic turf, the sand and rubber will stay in place while the debris is blown away. The drainage in our imitation grass is similar to natural grass. The artificial turf backing has many perforated holes allowing for water to drain vertically.
As you can see, the only limit to the places synthetic grass fits in is your imagination. You wouldn’t be alone if you haven’t followed the evolution of synthetic grass products over the years. Today’s synthetic products are truly state-of-the-art.
