Obviously, you don’t have to mow an artificial lawn (removing this garden chore is a big bonus!), but that does not mean you don’t have to lift a finger to keep it in mint condition. Follow our guide on how to clean artificial grass to ensure it stays looking healthy and lasts longer.
With our years of experience and in-depth knowledge of all things landscaping, we can help you select the perfect materials for your project. Today’s artificial grass is a popular and convenient option for lawn ideas that offer a very close replica of the real thing.
Consider giving your green spaces a pick-me-up for the next round of entertaining! Although artificial grass is practically maintenance-free and doesn’t ever turn brown, from time to time the original lushness needs to be brought back to life.
Good Idea to Use a Power Broom
A power broom can resemble a weed eater with a handle on one end and spinning bristles on the other.
When urine seeps through synthetic turf it can get trapped between the grass carpet and weed barrier beneath it resulting in a foul odour. The bad smell can linger and last for months if not treated properly, the best way to treat the smell is to invest in a cleaning product with enzymes that break down the source of it. You want to select one that gets rid of the smell rather than masks it – non-toxic professional grass cleaners such as pets and Say Green can help you with your dog’s urine woes.
Can I jet wash?
Gentle pressure is the secret to washing artificial grass, if you’re thinking of jet washing your lawn remember that the grass fibres aren’t as strong as a surface such as a patio.
How often should you clean your lawn?
In summer: with an artificial lawn, clean once a week on average, dropping to once a fortnight, or longer, during periods of maintenance and is dependent on how frequently your grass is used. Considering monthly artificial lawn maintenance check for a quick clean once a week.
Weeds typically form at the edges from seeds and leaves that have dropped to the ground. Occasionally, surface weeds can sprout up because of airborne seeds or leaves that have fallen onto the grass from surrounding trees. As these weeds grow so close to the surface, all you need to do to remove them is to gently pull them out. No digging, mowing, strimming or hoeing is required! There are many ways in which weeds can be easily removed from artificial grass or water weeds with boiling water for an easy solution.
