There’s no doubt you are feeling quite proud of your artificial garden and look forward to using it or showing it off. While regular maintenance is the best way to keep your garden looking fresh, we have some additional recommended tips to ensure you get the most out of your artificial grass.
1.Avoid placing any heat-related items or furniture on your artificial lawn. This includes BBQs, fire-pits and fireworks.
2.Don’t let any harsh chemicals come into contact with your artificial garden including greases, fuels, battery acids and bleaches as they will tarnish and discolour the grass over time.
3.Rotate heavy objects like furniture and pools to other areas of the garden to prevent permanent flattening of artificial grass.
4.Never wear studded or stiletto shoes on your artificial grass as these will puncture and damage the surface, sometimes causing rips and tears that will start to lift. The same can be said for keeping sharp items or broken glass off and away from artificial grass gardens.
5.Remove mirrors or mirrored surfaces from your garden to prevent reflected sunlight heating up your artificial grass and damaging the surface. The same effect can sometimes happen if sunlight is reflected from energy-efficient windows and doors, due to a reflective inner layer designed to keep heat in/out of homes. Consider installing shades, awnings or shutters on problem doors and windows to reduce the harsh reflected light.With careful and regular maintenance, your artificial garden will continue looking fantastic for years to come. Should you find that some areas have become lacklustre or damaged, a small area replacement is easy enough to carry out.
If you are unsure, it’s always wise to call in the professionals, rather than attempt a half-hearted DIY job.
