Maintaining Your Artificial Grass

Maintaining Your Artificial Grass Lawn

There are a plethora of applications for artificial grass – it can be used on backyard putting greens, for artificial grass lawns, on playgrounds, and more. One big benefit of this material is that it doesn’t require the upkeep that a living lawn does. That means no watering, mowing, fertilizing, grub prevention, re-seeding, or aerating. However, while artificial grass doesn’t require the upkeep that a real lawn does, that’s not to say that it doesn’t need any upkeep at all. We recommend weekly and monthly artificial lawn maintenance that you should conduct. Here’s a look:

  • – Weekly maintenance: Think of an artificial lawn like a carpet in the sense that debris and dirt will build up on the surface over time. Use a leaf blower to remove debris from your artificial grass.  Heavy debris may require a stiff bristle broom or rake to clean the turf.  Do not power wash synthetic grass as it will displace the infill material.  You may use a garden hose to spray the turf to cleanse it.
  • – Monthly maintenance: In addition to weekly cleaning, your artificial lawn can benefit from being readjusted by a rake or broom once a month. This helps the grass blades to stand upright and helps your lawn stay clean, green, and looking fresh. For artificial lawns that are matted and in poor shape, professional grooming assistance may be required.  If the presence of mold or mildew or odors occurs, you can spray a 50/50 bleach water solution on the artificial grass followed by spraying off with a garden hose.  (Note: Don’t use a steel rake, as these have the tendency to damage your synthetic grass blades.)

One big benefit of having an artificial grass surface is that the amount of upkeep you’re responsible for is much less than a natural grass lawn. For more information on taking care of your artificial grass surface, contact the artificial grass Miami experts at Southwest Greens of Florida.
