One of the biggest reasons why people make the switch from natural grass to artificial grass at their home is the lack of maintenance requirements. Gone are the days of constantly mowing and fertilizing the lawn to make sure it looks nice. Just how much maintenance goes into a synthetic grass lawn though? Well, let’s take a look at some of the maintenance requirements for low maintenance grass in Florida.
One pesky chore that you can eliminate is constantly watering the grass. Not only will that save you precious time on a Saturday, it will also conserve more water for the greater good. However, it is still good to give your artificial grass a nice rinsing on occasion. The occasional spraying of the grass with the hose will help keep it clean and looking its best year round.
Depending on the amount of foot traffic your lawn sees, you might start to notice that even the synthetic grass is getting matted down. A simple brushing will get those strands of grass standing back upright again and looking as good as new. It’s important to use a special synthetic bristle brush and only brush the grass when it is completely dry.
Just because your grass might be synthetic, doesn’t mean that leaves won’t still fall on it. Just as you would have done when you had natural grass, it’s important to make sure you rake the leaves.
