Having artificial grass definitely comes with lots of perks; lush green grass all year round making the top of the list and low maintenance coming in a close second. But artificial grass still needs to be cared for to ensure longevity, to keep it looking as real as possible and if you're a pet owner, to have it smelling as fresh as possible.
We recommend the following tips to keep your synthetic grass looking as great as the day it was installed:
Step 1: Remove Debris Regularly
One of the easiest ways to keep your artificial grass in top shape is to regularly remove debris from its surface. This includes leaves, twigs, pet hair & pet poops! Using a rake or leaf blower to gather up leaves in just a matter of minutes. If left for long periods, this debris could cause your grass blades to become flat, or clog your drainage, reducing your synthetic grass' lifespan.
Step 2: Cross-Brush Your Grass Blades
With frequent use and foot traffic, even the best synthetic grass will eventually become flattened and matted over time. Cross-brushing your turf every month will help counteract this, restoring the artificial pile to its newly installed appearance.
A good stiff garden broom and a bit of elbow grease, brushing against the natural lay of the synthetic grass, will help fluff and restore the grass blades.
To speed the process up and remove the substantial effort, investment in a handheld power brush is worthwhile.
The TurFresh Power Brush is specially designed to effectively re-fluff grass blades and remove debris without damaging your synthetic grass.
When cross-brushing always use a brush or broom with synthetic bristles, and avoid metal prongs at all costs.
Step 3. For Pet Owners, Remove Urine Odour
