The snow is finally melting and temperatures are rising, which means your synthetic grass in North Carolina is ready to bask in the sun again. Heavy snowfall can keep lawns buried during the winter. Luckily, when the snow finally clears you’ll see a beautiful, green lawn while neighbors will uncover dead grass that needs hours of maintenance. As an artificial grass owner, you can follow these steps to quickly and easily bring your artificial lawn back to life.
It can be tempting to shovel snow off of your synthetic lawn, however, our products are designed to withstand the cold and the weight of heavy snow. Shoveling your lawn can severely damage the individual fibers that make up your artificial grass. The best thing you can do for your artificial grass is just let the snow drain on its own. Our installation process naturally includes a drainage system that allows for 30 inches of water to drain every hour. Warmer temperatures will allow the snow to melt away, preparing your lawn for spring without any effort on your part.
Clear Away Debris
During winter storms, debris and dirt can fly around and become trapped underneath the snow. After the snow melts, you’ll want to clear away any excess debris left over because it could potentially clog drains. You can clear away leaves or branches with a plastic rake. For smaller debris or dirt use a stiff brush to clear your lawn. Remember never to use metal on your artificial grass to help preserve the integrity of the grass fibers. Use your hose to quickly clear any remaining dirt that might have been left behind, as well.
