Although an artificial lawn requires much less maintenance than a real lawn, it is not maintenance free. There are a few things that you need to do in order to keep your new lawn looking at its best. Here are a few tips to help you:

Brush:

To keep your lawn looking new and lush, brush the artificial grass upwards using a medium bristled brush. This prevents the grass from looking flat and dull. We recommend doing this once a month until the summer period, where you will likely have to do it more often due to the increase in time spent on the grass.

Clear of Debris:

As the months pass by, it is highly likely that debris will fall on the grass, especially if there are trees or vegetation close by it. The debris should be removed as soon as possible, to prevent the grass from looking messy and to lower the risk of unwanted plants and weeds growing on it.

To further prevent weeds or moss growing, we suggest a regular application of a water-based moss and weed killer agent, which we stock at our showroom.

If a weed does start to grow, don’t panic! All you have to do is remove the weed by the root and apply a water-based moss and weed killer.

Pets:

Pets tend to love artificial grass, but unfortunately they can mess it up sometimes. To prevent your pet from damaging your artificial grass, ensure that you wash any spots they have urinated on so that the grass doesn’t begin to smell. Also remove any pet waste as quickly as possible and wash over it using soapy water to prevent it from staining.

If your pet has a tendency to malt a lot, make sure that the patches of fur left on the grass are brushed away using a medium bristled brush.

Stain Free:

If you happen to accidentally stain your artificial lawn it should be easy enough to remove. All you need to do is wash the mark using hot, soapy water. For tougher oil stains, remove them using a cloth and a propriety cleaning product.

Extras:

Some extra tips to keep your artificial grass in top condition is to avoid using any sources of heat on or nearby it (including smoking, fireworks etc.), never use strong chemicals or detergents on it and avoid any sharp objects coming into contact with the lawn, like football studded boots or stiletto shoes.
