Although it’s easier to clean and maintain, it’s always guaranteed for your lawn to be in disarray. Your pet might poop, food might be split, or mould might develop on the ground.

One of the best strategies for upkeeping your artificial grass is by cleaning it once a week. At the most, you can trim it every fortnight at most. What’s the positive? The positive? Since you don’t have to mow the lawn or take out the weeds, this makes the level and length of maintenance much faster. By having an artificial grass lawn on your property, you can prevent spending so much time upkeeping the lawn allowing you to have more time for other tasks.
Ways you can tidy up your lawn is by using a brush, a leaf blower, or a rake to remove any debris. For harder-to-remove items, such as branches and leaves you can simply use a leaf blower in order to keep your lawn crystal clear. If you’re looking to remove dust, you can also rinse out the grass using a hose. As a disclaimer, it is important to not use a household vacuum to remove debris from artificial grass.
1. Food Spills
One major benefit of using artificial grass on your lawn is that it's easy to remove food and drink spills. It’s quick and simple to remove the stain – you simply wipe away the residue and voila! You’ve got a clean lawn again.
For more tedious stains, you can simply scrub them off with a combination of gentle household cleaning products and water. If it’s sticky, you can simply freeze off the liquid with dry ice and then scrape it off. You can simply wash the artificial grass off with liquid to ensure you have a freshly clean lawn to call your own.
If you’re not able to clean up the food or pet waste, this can lead to the development of mould on your artificial grass lawn. To tidy up after the mould, you can use a combination of vinegar and water. After it has all been removed, you can simply rinse off the remnants using a hose.
For extra care, you can add hydrogen peroxide to the problematic area. As a disclaimer, if there’s hydrogen left on the grass for way too long, this can lead to discoloration, so it’s important to be careful when handling hydrogen peroxide.
3. Pet Droppings
It’s hard to clean up after your furry friend. Artificial grass makes it all easier, as they don’t decompose as rapidly. The good thing is that your pet tends to poop in the same area, so you will only have to fix up after a minor part of your whole lawn. The best way to get rid of the droppings is to scoop up the excrement in a waste bag and hose down the area. If there is a smell that remains you can mix up vinegar and water concoction to make the lawn naturally fresh. Before purchasing an artificial grass lawn, it’s important to let our supplier know as they can add extra features that can work with your lifestyle.
