Proper Maintenance Ensures Longer Artificial Grass Service Time

Artificial grass lifespan is about 5 to 8 years, while natural grass may have to be replanted or reseeded every year or two. However, the longevity of artificial grass can vary depending on factors such as product quality, amount of use, and weather conditions, etc. Next, we introduce how to extend the service life of artificial grass.

Artificial grass is taking a small shower.

Water the surface

Water the Surface

While it's true that artificial grass doesn't need to be watered as much as natural grass, that doesn't mean it won't benefit from the occasional small shower. Contaminants and pollen that collect on the surface of artificial grass blades can be washed away with a quick spray from a hose. Artificial grass is designed to facilitate good drainage, so there is no need to worry about a soggy lawn after you rinse it off.

Pick Up Pet Waste

Artificial grass is often made of antimicrobial materials that help keep your family and pets safe. Unless you live in an area that gets a lot of rain, you'll want to make sure you hose down the surface regularly to remove urine and potential stains. As for solid waste, you should always try to pick it up as soon as possible. This will help reduce lingering odors and minimize the chances of any stains affecting the aesthetics of your lawn.

Over time, the small blades of grass that make up the artificial grass are compressed or withered. An easy way to give your lawn a new look is to brush it with a tool designed for artificial grass. You can restore the tangled fibers by brushing in the opposite direction to get more depth and height. Just be sure to use a brush with synthetic bristles, as other materials such as wires or hard plastic can inadvertently damage your lawn and grass patches.

Spot Clean for Common Stains

You should look at your new lawn the same way you look at your carpet: clean up the mess as soon as it happens, rather than letting the stain set. The products needed to clean stains on artificial grass are usually the same as those you use at home. When it comes to cleaning up stains such as paint, coffee or condiments, a regular household cleaner should do the trick. However, if you have a harder stain such as crayon, motor oil or chewing gum that you don't want to sink into the artificial grass infill, you need to use a special grease remover that will remove the material from the grass.

Replace High-Traffic Patches

The longer you enjoy your artificial grass lawn, the more likely you are to start noticing areas of heavy traffic. This is the area where your family most often crosses the lawn, or perhaps the path your dog follows along the fence line. Moderate wear and tear in high traffic areas is normal, but you don't have to sacrifice the overall beauty of your artificial grass lawn for these small patches. A professional can quickly and easily replace high traffic patches and make your yard look new again.
