North Carolina residents love artificial lawns because they are easy to maintain. After you’ve gotten rid of your lawn mower and trimmers, you might be wondering what maintenance is necessary to get the most out of your new artificial lawn. Whether after your furry friend uses the yard or you just had your friends over for a barbecue last weekend, these simple steps will not only help your lawn last for years, but it will look more beautiful than ever.
Just Keep Brushing
We recommend using a brush periodically to help keep the appearance of your beautiful lawn at its best. Using a nonmetal brush or rake will help get rid of any debris after a storm or leaves in the fall. Using a handled brush is recommended for getting your turf “prime and pristine” after heavy foot traffic from barbeques, play dates, or an afternoon of fetch with your pet. At the end of the day, taking a few minutes to brush the synthetic fibers is still way easier than having to use a lawnmower every Saturday.
Keep it Clean
Fortunately, rainfall is the best cleanser for artificial grass. If there hasn’t been rain for a while, an occasional spray from the hose will help clean the surface. This also helps prevent any dust, pollen, or airborne pollutants from sticking to your lawn. Use a light water pressure to avoid damaging the turf or disrupting the infill consistency.
Maintenance for your synthetic grass is specific to where you live in North or South Carolina and who lives with you. If you live in a dusty area that is prone to high wind and debris pickup, you will want to spray your lawn weekly or as needed during the month.
Be Nice to Your Lawn
Even though your SYNLawn turf is tough and has durable fibers, you should still take precautions to prevent any damage to the fibers. After all, you take pride in your lawn that looks beautiful year-round, right?
Avoid using open flames or cooking directly near your turf, as these can cause heavy damage to the grass fibers. Don’t let your lawn turn into a parking lot, keep cars and heavy furniture away to ensure that there will be no tire marks or indents. Finally, you will want to cap off or remove any nearby sprinkler systems. This is because water from sprinkler systems can leave mineral deposits on the turf that will cause it to lose that vibrant green color.
