Best Tools for Artificial Grass Lawn Maintenance
When you exchange your needy natural grass for the ease, convenience, and consistent beauty of an artificial grass lawn, there are a number of lawn maintenance tools you’ll be able to clean out of the tool shed for good.
Artificial grass is incredibly low maintenance and following a simple routine maintenance schedule can make all the difference when it comes to ensuring your artificial grass lawn stays green and pristine.
When performing these simple maintenance tasks, it’s essential to use the right equipment. Here are a handful of handy tools to make artificial grass lawn maintenance a breeze:
Never use tools that have steel points or spikes for artificial grass maintenance. These tools can easily rip the mesh backing and cause permanent damage to your artificial grass lawn. Instead, use rakes with plastic points for easy leaf cleanup in the fall.
Electric Leaf Blower
Many of today’s electric leaf blowers offer just as much power as most gas-powered leaf blowers. They also make quick work of artificial grass debris clearing without the fumes and ear-blasting noise.
Sometimes artificial grass accumulates dirt, debris, or stains that need more than a simple hosing off. Some excellent options for stain removal are green cleaners containing no abrasive chemicals. Simply blot the stained area with a sponge dampened with your chosen eco-friendly cleaner. Rub the stain gently until it lifts and then rinse with cold water. Never use caustic, acidic cleaners, and certainly nothing containing bleach.
Artificial Turf Brush
When you have your artificial grass lawn installed, you should also invest in a turf brush or broom with synthetic bristles. Use this brush to cross brush areas that receive a lot of foot traffic. Artificial grass can be trampled down with repeated use, and cross brushing will help it stand straight again and prevent fading or wearing down from overuse. Brushing can maintain the integrity of the individual blades of artificial grass. The matting that occurs from overuse can cause the blades to begin to break down and look different over time. Cross brushing, however, can reduce this damage and prolong the life and beauty of your artificial lawn.
