If you are someone who loves greenery around but does not want to invest time and energy in maintaining organic grass, then install the artificial grass carpet. Artificial grass is currently in a trend that looks the same as organic grass. It is easy to install and maintain as compared to real grass that needs constant attention and care. But just because artificial grass has low maintenance, it does not mean that you don’t have to look after it at all.
There are certain things that you need to keep in mind to maintain the natural look of these artificial grasses. Here are some useful tips and tricks that you can follow, to keep your artificial grass look fresh and new for years.
Cleaning The Surface
There can be fallen leaves, shrubs, or dirt that can get accumulated on the surface of your grass, and it needs to be cleaned regularly. The best way to remove all the debris and other material from the carpet is to use a blower or a broom with soft bristles. A blower is very useful in removing the dry and debris from the surface while a broom can be used to get rid of the dirt collected at the bottom of the grass.
Rinse The Carpet Once
It is important to deep clean your artificial turf or grass for making it look fresh for a long time. Wash your grass carpet at least once a month with mild detergent or soap and plain water. Make sure you are not using too much pressure with water as it can ruin the shape of your artificial turf. Make use of a pipe or garden hose and use the water in a circular motion to remove all the spills and dirt from the grass. However, keep a check on the water usage as wasting too much water is also not a good idea.
Avoid Too Much Liquid
While washing your artificial grass once a month with water is fine but using the liquid frequently can also ruin your grass. If accidentally you have spilled something on the grass then just take a paper towel or tissue to clean and soak the liquid. Make sure you are not rubbing the tissue on the grass to prevent it from reaching the bottom.
Using A Natural Solution
Although artificial grass is less prone to accumulating bacteria and germs as compared to organic grass, still there can be minute chances of it. You can’t use the fertilizers or harsh chemicals that you use on the natural grass. So the best way to get rid of bacteria is through using a mixture of vinegar and water solution on the surface of the grass. Just take a half cup of vinegar and half cup of water and pour it into a spray bottle. Now, spritz this solution on the spots where you suspect the bacteria to be widespread.
