Maintaining Your Artificial Lawn

Artificial lawns are very low maintenance; however, as with everything, there are things you can do to keep them in top shape. Keep the lawn clean Although they won’t harm the lawn, leaves and twigs will inevitably fall on to the grass. If neglected, this may lead to unwanted weed growth. It is best to remove these with a stiff broom, plastic rake, blower – or even a hoover! Yes, you read that right, a hoover! Brush the pile Every month or two, we recommend a good brush up of the pile to keep the fibres upright. Sunlight / heat do lift the pile naturally; however, in areas with a lot of foot traffic, it’s always best to brush the fibres back up to help prevent flattening. Weed killer Some stubborn weeds may find their way through the artificial lawn, and some airborne seeds can settle on the surface. We recommend removing any weeds that surface and spraying weed killer once or twice a year to help prevent any weeds popping up through the drainage holes around the edges of the lawn. Also, to help avoid any moss growth. Make sure to use a water-based weed killer, and it’s highly recommended you do a patch test on an off-cut first. Pet owners Pet owners love our lawns as they are easily maintained! You should make sure that all mess is removed from the surface, and if needed, you can hose the area down or use warm water to rinse away any residue. A mild detergent, such as diluted Zoflora, can be used to keep the lawn smelling nice and fresh. You can also purchase pet odour removers (for more information on which ones we suggest, contact us here). Things to avoid It is important to remember that any naked flame…

Is artificial grass suitable for pets?

Are you thinking of getting artificial grass but don’t know whether it’s suitable for your furry family members?There are many reasons why having artificial lawn when you have some four legged friends in your household, as it’s generally safer than natural lawns, making it a pet-friendly favourite. Safer than natural lawns Pets and artificial grass work well together. There’s no weeds that they can chew, no mushrooms or toadstools that they can forage out and eat, and it’s safe for them to walk on without the risk of getting anything stuck in their paws. Artificial grass is washable We don’t mean you can throw it in the washing machine, of course! But you can hose it down, especially if your dog uses the lawn as its toilet. The artificial grass doesn’t stain like natural grass due to the dogs urine, so you won’t get any horrible brown patches in your lawn. Highly durable If you have a puppy or remember your dog being a puppy, you will know they tend to pull up the grass or dig their way to another part of the country. Artificial grass is highly durable and, therefore, will withstand those puppy digging stages. If rabbits are your pet of choice, you might be worried about their vegetarian diet and your grass becoming a victim, we recommend keeping an eye out but you shouldn’t have anything to worry about. Our artificial grass can withstand any pet test. If you have any further questions about our artificial grass, our team will be happy to answer them and find the perfect artificial grass for your garden / outdoor area.
