Artificial grass is a functional and aesthetically pleasing addition to your backyard, and we are certain your family (pets included) will love the low-maintenance care that accompanies installing synthetic grass at your home in North or South Carolina.
After you’ve sold your lawn mower and grass trimmer, you might be wondering what maintenance your new lawn requires, especially if you have a furry companion who frequently uses and loves your artificial grass. Lucky for you, you’ve landed in the right place! This blog post will inform you of the easy, low maintenance ways you can clean your grass by using simple methods and various deodorizers to keep your grass looking pristine all year long.
Spray your lawn weekly
One of the easiest ways to keep your artificial grass clean and well maintained is to use a garden hose to spray your lawn once a week. Rinsing down your grass will remove dust, fiber and other material that may accumulate over time and be uncomfortable on bare feet as well as potentially affecting the durability of your lawn.
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.
Invest in high-quality pet deodorizers
We all love our furry companions, but pets are often associated with a messy backyard. To combat the inevitable waste cleanup that comes with being a pet owner, investing in a safe and reliable deodorizer for your artificial grass, along with routinely spraying, will benefit your pets, your nose and your lawn.
Synthetic grass incorporates drainage naturally, so you won’t have to worry about puddles and can remove pet waste easily using your own preferred method (plastic bags, scooper, etc). We add organic zeolite crystals to each installation that can reduce up to 80% of odor stemming from the ammonia in your pet’s urine. ZeoFill is 100% all natural, environmentally friendly and amazing at absorbing and reducing odor with zeolite crystals that prevent the ammonia from becoming a gas. This is what gives off the foul odor in most non-synthetic lawns and will be a thing of the past for your home.
Use a brush or rake to remove debris
Using a gentle brush or rake is a great way to remove debris after a storm or as the seasons demand, depending on where you live and what kind of trees and plants you have in your backyard. Using a handled brush for turf that has creased is an easy solution to get your artificial lawn looking prime and pristine again despite heavy foot traffic, backyard barbeques, play dates, and an afternoon date of playing fetch with Fido.
