Four Important Tasks for Artificial Grass Care

As with any equipment and installation, artificial grass’ condition will only stay as good as the care you give it. Of course, it’s easier to look after than regular grass and you have the guarantee of green grass every day of the year. However, the following can wreak havoc on your new patch of green if you don’t provide proper care:

  • Removing dust: Dusty artificial grass won’t look inviting and what’s more, leaving dust and debris on the lawn can prevent proper drainage.
  • Cleaning liquid messes: Make sure harmful spills, such as chemicals, don’t damage the grass. Other spills can lead to a dirty, unhygienic lawn, so better to clean it up swiftly.
  • Preventing stains from messes: Artificial grass can be rinsed clean, but certain messes can leave unsightly stains if not treated in time.
  • Managing your pets’ waste: Liquid and solid waste can create various problems, from odours to stains and more.

These are just some of the problems Easygrasse can assist you with. Talk to us about how to simplify maintenance of your artificial grass.

Yes, your artificial grass is a safe space for your pets to use too and in general their waste won’t damage the turf, as long as you do the following:

  • Take quick action to prevent stains.
  • Drench areas where they urinate, so the liquid can drain away and remove odours.
  • For excrement, let it dry before you pick it up to remove it. But make sure you remove all of it so it doesn’t get trodden into the fibers.
