Our Top Tips
Using a stiff yard brush will help to keep the grass fibres upright, improving the look of your lawn. Lawns that get heavy use might need to be brushed more regularly than those that don’t. Brushing against the direction of the fibres will give you the best results.
REMOVE ANY DEBRIS
Falling leaves, twigs or other garden debris should be removed from the lawn surface regularly. A leaf blower is ideal for this but a brush or a rake will also do the trick! If this debris builds up, your lawn may become more susceptible to weeds. If your lawn is surrounded by trees or shrubs you may need to clear debris on a more regular basis.
KEEP WEEDS AWAY
Your garden hose is ideal for washing away any spillages etc. The best way to keep weeds away is to spray an eco-friendly weed killer a couple of times a year to reduce the risk of any weeds growing in the grass fibres. If weeds do grow, they can be easily removed by hand or by brushing as outlined above. Lawns that get light ‘traffic’ might need to be treated more often than those that get heavy use.
CLEAN UP AFTER PETS
Cleaning up after pets is really easy. Dog mess can be picked up in a bag or using gloves and any residue rinsed away with the garden hose to wash away any residue or odours. Antibacterial spray can also be used if you’re concerned about any leftover bacteria. Our artificial grass is fully permeable with excellent drainage and very quick drying.
BAN CHEWING GUM
Have a ban on chewing gum – yes, we mean it, after all a chewing gum free home is a more harmonious home!
DON’T PLACE BARBEQUE DIRECTLY ON ARTIFICIAL GRASS
If you’re having a barbeque don’t place the barbeque directly on the artificial grass. It’s not a fire hazard but it may damage it. If there’s no other alternative to outside cooking, make sure you cover the grass to provide additional protection.
