If you just had new artificial turf placed on your property, you are most likely enjoying the aesthetically pleasing appearance it provides to your home. With the addition of synthetic grass, you will enjoy the elimination of mowing, aerating, weeding, and fertilizing. Although the maintenance is not as extensive, there are still steps you will need to do to keep your synthetic grass looking its best. Here are some tips you can use to keep your synthetic grass looking like new so your curb appeal remains favorable when people view your property.

Rinse The Grass To Keep It Looking Healthy

It is important to take the time to clean your artificial turf regularly. Failing to do a cleaning procedure will lead to blades that look lackluster. This will give your lawn a shadowy look, making it seem as if you have unhealthy grass upon your land as a result. To clean your grass, simply use a garden hose to rinse away dust and debris from the blades' surfaces. If you live in an area where rain is present regularly, it may be enough to remove debris on its own. At times when rain is not likely, a quick spray down of your synthetic lawn will revitalize its appearance.

Remove Larger Debris Problems Promptly

If you have pets or children, your lawn is prone to becoming dirty a bit more than one that is not utilized often. It is best to do spot checks of your lawn after people or pets have used it to remove any debris from the area promptly. Use a stiff-bristled brush or rake to remove leaves, twigs, or dirt from grass blades effectively. Make sure you avoid stainless steel bristles, as they could cause scratching upon the grass blades. If you have a pet, remove any solid waste and throw it away in your household trash or flush it down your toilet. Rinse the area well with a garden hose to remove any remnants from your blades.

Keep Blades Upright With Simple Measures

If people or pets use your lawn, there will most likely be times that the blades appear flattened due to weight pressed upon them. To improve the appearance of your lawn, use a rake or brush to push the blades back into an upright position. This is done by pressing the tool against the natural grain of the blades and guiding them upward.
