Synthetic turf is significantly easier to keep clean and maintain than regular grass. It’s one of its biggest appeals. Just because it doesn’t have to be fertilized, mowed, or aerated doesn’t mean that it’s completely maintenance free. Here is how to keep your low maintenance grass in Florida maintained.
How often you have to clean and maintain your artificial grass depends on your living situation. If you have outdoor pets, children, or have a lot of trees or shrubs, you will have to clean it more often than someone that doesn’t have any of those things. On the flip side, if you live in an area that gets rain a lot, the rainwater can wash your lawn, reducing the number of times that you have to do it.
Typically, it is suggested that you spray your lawn down once a week. A light rinsing weekly with a hose will remove any dust and small debris that might have built up. A more thorough cleaning should be done once a month. This will include not just spraying your lawn down, but taking a rake or broom and going through the lawn to clean everything out. Doing this will keep your lawn looking green and maintain its upright position. Once again, pets or trees that regularly lose leaves might require you to do it more often.
Cleaning up after a pet on artificial grass is the same as it is on regular grass. For solid waste, use whatever you normally would to pick it up. For urine removal, your weekly rinsing and monthly thorough cleaning of the lawn should take care of that. Keeping a bottle of turf deodorizer handy will help prevent the odors from the pet waste.
