One of the reasons you probably chose to install artificial grass is because it does not require the regular weekly or even daily upkeep that a real grass lawn requires. it does not require water, fertilizer/soil, cutting or weeding. However, like most things in your life it does require you to perform a yearly inspection and service in order to keep it looking nice. Whether your artificial grass covers your entire yard or just exists in certain places, you should perform the following in the spring on a yearly basis.
The first thing you want to do is inspect the lawn for any debris. This could be from trash that happened to blow into your yard on a windy day or leftover fall foliage from the passing of seasons. Pick up any loose debris and throw it away. For those pesky, yet beautiful fall leaves, you can gently use a rake to gather the leaves and pick them up for disposal.
If you have a dog, you will inevitably have to deal with pet waste. While inspecting your yard for debris, also inspect for any dog waste. Pick up the waste and place it in a bag for disposal. Make sure to clean each spot on your lawn with a hose in order to remove stains and odors. For stuck-on stains, you can gently use a brush to scrub the stains away. Cleaning up after your dog should actually be done on a monthly basis. Additionally, the hose should be used on a monthly basis as well to remove stains and odors before they have the chance to set in. Don’t worry about getting your artificial turf wet on a regular basis because this will not encourage the growth of mold or otherwise affect it. Artificial turf is made to get wet and is also made to drain fast as well.
Next, you will want to look around the yard for any high traffic areas. You will notice these because the grass won’t be as high in those areas from being stepped upon on a regular basis. To keep the lawn looking fresh and new, you will want to essentially re-fluff your artificial grass in these high traffic areas. In order to do this, you can use a brush to rebuild the lawn to its original state.
If you pick up after your pet on a monthly basis and do the other tasks on a yearly basis, this regular maintenance will keep your lawn looking fresh and new. It will also keep it looking this way for many many years. When well taken care of through regular recommended maintenance, artificial lawns have been known to last 20 to 25 years before needing to be replaced.
