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.
