Fake grass has long been praised for its low maintenance and little-to-no-hassle promise, but before you have your lawn installed, you may be wondering what you need to ensure it stays in pristine condition. This doesn’t mean you have to go out buying special chemicals though, as most, if not all, of the essentials can be found in your home.
So, let’s take a look at what you need for your artificial grass.
A Lawn Rake
In any season, a large amount of debris can accumulate on your artificial lawn, so it is always best to keep a lawn rake handy (note: avoid purchasing one with steel bristles, as this could damage the synthetic blades). You should aim to clear the garden with the rake at least once a month, depending on the season.
If you find that following a quick rake, the blades don’t stand as upright as you would like, simply grab a broom, and groom your lawn by brushing in the opposite direction to the lawn’s natural grain.
If you have pets, you will want to ensure their mess is cleaned up properly, to provide a sanitary surface. So, if you notice common areas for urination, grab the white vinegar and pour it on said area. Then, wash it away with water after it has had time to soak in (usually a couple of minutes will suffice).
Of course, artificial grass doesn’t need watering, but that doesn’t mean it won’t benefit from a light spray every now and again. This, again, will help to remove any debris and dirt that may have gotten caught between the synthetic blades, as well as keep it looking fresh and ensure it is clean. Try to do this every week for the best results.
These are just three essentials for your artificial lawn. For more to help with installation and the like, see our shop or get in touch with the Artificial Lawn Company today. We look forward to hearing from you, and we hope you have a great summer!
