Admit it, your fingers are itching to decorate your front lawn with the Christmas ornaments you’ve hoarded since the start of the year. However, before you spend hours out in your yard and inviting the rest of your family to help you set up your display, there are a few things you need to know if you’re using fake grass for your yard in Florida. Below are do’s and don’ts you need to remember when you’re using synthetic grass.
Do take advantage of the fake grass offcuts and use them in your Christmas display. If you are going to set up a Christmas tree on your front lawn, you can cover the stand with offcuts. You can also use these offcuts to cover gigantic candy canes and all other Christmas objects you plan to display.
When used resourcefully and creatively, your neighbors will want to take pictures of your Holiday display. Another thing, do be careful when using lights like rope lights to ensure it doesn’t cause a fire. Check the lights if they are made for outdoor use. When you’re using extension wires, seal them in a weatherproof container.
Don’t use stakes in your fake grass! Some decorations need to be pierced into the grass through the use of stakes or driving pegs so they won’t blow over. Unfortunately, using these to keep your decors in place can be detrimental to your fake grass. If you really want to use them, you can place them inside a box or wrap them up and fill them with rocks to add more weight.
Last but not least, don’t worry about destroying your fake grass through foot traffic because high-quality fake grass can withstand extra traffic.
