Artificial Grass Maintenance

by:Invotive     2020-08-05

Artificial grass is a replica of the natural grass that is man-made from plastic fibers and is produced to look and feel like real grass. Today's generation of synthetic grass is indistinguishable from the natural one. It is best used in areas where climate and the environment make it difficult for natural grass to grow and stay healthy. Artificial grass is now the best choice in dry, arid and humid countries where maintaining a lawn is formerly impossible.

It is important to take care of your artificial lawn for it to be long-lasting. Although it doesn't need the regular mowing, watering and trimming, it requires special care. It is a must for it to sustain its color vibrancy and softness through the years. Artificial grass maintenance is hassle-free and you can do it in just minutes.

Keeping your artificial turf clean is the key for long lasting beautiful lawn. Do it on a regular basis. Always inspect and pick up any debris like leaves, sticks, or plastic wrappers using a plastic rake or a leaf blower. It is actually easier to clean artificial lawn compared to real grass because the wastes don't sink down to soil and become stuck. Keep in mind that metal rakes are not used in artificial turf because it can damage the lawn's fibers. Raking helps to level the infill of the turf and straighten the fibers. Do it more frequently in high-traffic areas or if you see noticeable marks or grooves. You can try alternate directions of raking for optimal fluffing.

Pick-up any animal feces and use water or white vinegar to rinse away urine. If you do not want to use vinegar, you can buy enzymatic cleaners at pet shops to disinfect and remove animal odor. You can use soap with warm water for any stains. Brush until the stain is removed. You can also apply bleach solution to kill molds and mildew that normally grows in artificial turf. Always check with the manufacturer's manual before using any chemicals. Use it with caution to avoid damage that will lead to replacing your lawn with new ones. Practice diluting it in water because too concentrated chemicals can burn up or discolor the artificial grass.

During extremely hot weather, spray your artificial grass with water. This helps to protect it from the sun's damaging UV rays. Always ensure that you rinse well with plain water. Soap or any chemical residue can damage your artificial grass. It can also irritate your skin as well as your pet's paws. You can also spray fabric softeners to lessen static and keep individual blades spongy, supple and soft.

Compared to the real thing, artificial grass maintenance is more convenient. It is suited for the elderly and busy people. Preservation and protection is also a lot cheaper and it can last for many years. You can save a great deal from water bills, purchasing fertilizers and pesticides, and buying fuel or renting for lawnmower. That's why owning an artificial lawn is the choice for many businesses and homeowners.
