Pick it Up
Debris and other items can fall on your lawn. This could be twigs, leaves, or even branches. It could be trash blowing in from the neighbor’s yard or thrown out of the window of a littering driver. Whatever the situation, the sooner you get rid of any debris on your property, the better it will be for both the look of your property and your artificial grass.
If there is light debris, just use a rake or blower to get rid of it. You could also use a shop vac to remove things like leaves. If you have a lot of leaves or other debris, then it may be worth investing in a power broom to get rid of everything quickly.
As time goes on and dust and dirt blow onto your lawn, they can dull its natural green beauty. When this happens, simply rinse it off with a hose. It is that easy! If you use your lawn as a pet-friendly place for your pooch, pick up their solid waste right away. Their liquid waste will naturally filter but it’s wise to spray the grass down every week or so. That will keep it looking and smelling great.
Areas of your artificial grass that get more foot traffic than others can become flattened as time goes on. If you have something sitting on your artificial grass, such as a chair or a grill, it can become flattened underneath the object. High-traffic will do damage to natural grass but with artificial grass it can bounce back simply – all it takes is a little fluff. Get a stiff, natural-bristle broom, brush the lawn, and you will see the blades looking as good as they did the day your grass was installed.
Artificial Grass Requires Less Maintenance Than Natural Grass
If you look at this list of maintenance tasks for artificial grass and think it looks exhaustive, then we invite you to think about how much maintenance a natural grass lawn requires. It requires watering, mowing, raking, fertilizing – and that is just if it is healthy. If it becomes diseased or has certain areas with higher traffic, then specialty care may be needed.
There is simply no comparison: Artificial grass requires much less maintenance and care than natural grass. If you are ready to get a free quote to find out if it is the right choice for your home or business then we invite you to contact All Season Turf at (866) 365-8873.
