4 Tips for Turf Maintenance
Artificial turf is a great investment for any business or homeowner. It provides an appealing, low-maintenance surface that will not ruin the aesthetics of your property. However, artificial turf needs to be maintained in order to ensure it lasts for years. This post will discuss four ways you can maintain your artificial turf without hiring expensive professionals!
Keep artificial turf clean
Now this may seem like common sense, but many people neglect their artificial turf by not removing dirt and other materials on the surface. Dirt buildup quickly ruins the appearance of your lawn and makes it difficult to find out where you need to cut next time around. Avoid this problem by investing in an affordable vacuum cleaner with interchangeable attachments that allow you to easily clean
Use a weed barrier mat under the turf
The first step in proper turfing maintenance is to use a weed barrier mat underneath the artificial grass installation. This helps keep weeds from growing up through your lawn and makes it easier to pull any weeds that do grow up between visits with your lawn care professional.
Brush and rinse regularly
To keep your turf looking fresh and new, it is important to brush the surface regularly. This allows you to remove any dust or debris that may have accumulated on top of your lawn without damaging it. You should also rinse off the artificial grass every so often with a water hose in order to prevent unwanted build up from occurring.
Invest in the right tools
Even if you're putting down artificial grass, you'll need some tools and equipment to keep your lawn looking healthy. In lieu of a lawn mower, keep your hose, leaf blower, and rake. Also have a hard brush on hand. Most of these instruments and equipment can be acquired for very little money, so even if you don't have them on hand already, the investment is minimal.
