There are many benefits to having artificial grass in your garden but for many it’s the low amount of maintenance required to keep your lawn looking beautiful all year round.
We suggest that you brush your lawn at least once a month, you will know when it needs a brush; this will encourage the fibres to stay standing upright and looking lovely. Brushing with a stiff yard broom will also reduce the possibility of weeds germinating on the surface of your grass.
Removing Debris From The Surface
Use a stiff broom, plastic rake or even a garden blower to remove any debris from the surface of your grass.
Weeds and Moss
It is advisable to remove debris such as leaves regularly; if left it may encourage surface weed growth. Should you find any weeds or moss appearing on or around the edges of your artificial grass use any domestic moss or weed killer then remove or brush away once the weeds or moss has died.
Removing Stains And Marks
Wash any light stains off with hot soapy water. Tougher stains such as oily marks can be removed using white spirit and a cloth.
Pets And Animals
Artificial grass is extremely pet friendly. Mess can be picked up as usual and washed down if necessary. We would recommend that particularly during dry spells of weather you wash down more regularly with a artificial grass cleaner to avoid any odours occurring.
Things Not To Do
Remember your artificial grass is plastic and will therefore melt, so you should avoid items of great heat such as smoking, bonfires, fireworks, fire pits or BBQ’s.
- Do not put chewing gum or adhesives on to your artificial grass.
- Do not drive cars, motorbikes or other heavy vehicle on your artificial grass. However, bicycles, wheelchairs and wheelbarrows will be fine.
