There are many different types of fake turf grass on the market, from synthetic turf used for athletic fields to fake grass used for parks and playgrounds. Synthetic turf manufacturers have also created artificial grass for residential use, including homes and apartments. What’s the difference? The professionals at Artificial Turf Supply, one of the leading manufacturers of the product, have provided this primer on artificial grass for your home.
Looks Can Be Deceiving
Your neighbor won’t know you have synthetic turf! One of the main differences between fake grass for residential use and synthetic turf for other applications is that it’s designed to look like natural grass. Homeowners who want to landscape their yards with fake grass need a product that looks like real, healthy grass. Fortunately, the makers of advanced synthetic turf for residential projects have created just that, fake grass that is emerald-green in appearance but also looks authentic. After all, who wants fake grass that looks like plastic?
Soft and Comfortable
Most homeowners use fake grass to landscape their yards. This means that adults will be walking on the grass and children might be running and playing on it. The good news is that fake grass isn’t stiff and hard underfoot. It’s actually the opposite. Together with infill, synthetic turf designed for residential emulates the soft feeling of soil and grass underfoot.

One of the main benefits of making the switch to artificial grass is the low maintenance required. Unlike with natural grass, you never need to worry about mowing, trimming or reseeding your fake grass and it will require almost no water. The occasional watering to help clean the lawn or cool it down is all you need.
However, despite the reduced need for regular upkeep, you will have to perform some occasional maintenance in order to keep your synthetic lawn looking great. The good news is that you don’t need to do a lot of work and you only need some basic equipment. Make sure you have these tools handy before you start your artificial turf installation so you’ll be ready to do the required upkeep on your lawn:
Rake or Soft Brush: It’s important to remove any organic debris such as dead leaves from your artificial lawn. If not removed, this debris can sink to the base of your lawn and rot. Eventually, this can lead to mold and fungus or damage your turf. Using a rake or a soft brush on your lawn will help to get rid of this debris. You can also rake or brush against the grain to get the blades of your lawn to stand up straight.
Leaf Blower: Another weapon in your arsenal against organic debris is a leaf blower. Using the power of a leaf blower can get out small particles of debris without damaging your lawn.
Mild Detergent: If you ever have a spill (such as food or drink) or have a child drop gum on your artificial lawn, mild detergent is the perfect solution. Just apply and scrub with a soft towel to avoid stains.
