When we say that artificial grass requires low maintenance, it is important that owners do not take the term “low maintenance” to mean “zero maintenance.” A few simple steps to help you maintain your artificial grass lawn are as follows:
Brushing The Newly Installed Lawn
Light brushing, at least once a month, is highly recommended during the first two to three months, as this will help your lawn to reach optimum conditions quickly. It is advisable to use a brush with soft bristles.
Protect The Lawn
If you are doing any painting activities close to your lawn, always make sure that the lawn is covered so that in case there is any spillage it does not damage or spoil it.
If your pet happens to relieve itself on the artificial grass, 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.
Removal Of Debris
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.
Things To Avoid
Try to avoid sources of great heat, chewing gums, cars and sharp objects anywhere near the artificial lawn.
