How To Maintain Artificial Grass Lawns
Having an artificial lawn installed is a very significant investment of your hard-earned cash. Hence it would be natural that you would want to take care of it in the best way possible. However, the good news is that when compared to natural grass, artificial grass requires very little maintenance. It is imperative that owners do not take the term “very little maintenance” to mean “zero maintenance.” This simply means that one no longer needs to fertilize, mow or even waste large quantity of water, as was the case earlier, in order to have a green turf around your home.
We have handpicked a few simple steps to help you maintain your dream grass lawn. By just following these steps mentioned below, you can rest assured that your artificial lawn will continue to look mind-blowing for a really long time.
1) Brushing the newly installed lawn
During the first two to three months after installation of your new lawn, the sand infills will slowly settle down. Light brushing, at least once a month, is highly recommended during this period, as this will help your lawn to reach optimum conditions quickly. It is advised to use a brush with soft bristles.
2) Protect the lawn
If there are any activities going on near the lawn that may adversely affect the lawn, i.e. painting, always make sure that the lawn is covered so that in case there is any spillage it does not cause harm to the turf.
3) Pet feces
Pet owners can breathe a sigh of relief, as synthetic lawns are safe for pets. If at all an animal relieves itself on the lawn, the feces are to be manually removed and the area is to be washed with hot water that is mixed with a household cleaning agent as soon as possible.
4) Removal of debris
No debris should be allowed to accumulate on the surface of the lawn as this may cause unwanted organic growth. Unwanted debris should be removed from your grass surface at least once a month. You may use a water-based-weed-killer to prevent any sort of organic growth
Always be quick to remove all solid deposits or even pastes with a spatula. Though synthetic lawns are resilient to staining, if not removed promptly it might prove quite a challenge to do it later on.
6) Things to avoid
Avoid sources of great heat, chewing gums, cars and sharp objects anywhere near the artificial lawn.
