Maintenance is necessary to remove debris and keep your lawn looking natural and new. However, if you have pets, be mindful of the impact. More maintenance than necessary is required if you want your artificial lawn to last; our Garden designers try to handle this with you before the installation, we will go over the infill options and other solutions with regards to odour.
Once installed you can simply rinse the pet waste away, or pick it up, as needed. Proactive positioning in regard to wear and tear will extend your artificial lawns lifespan.
On the whole, synthetic grass requires very little maintenance. You may to rake it periodically to stand the blades up, rinse from time to time to remove dirt, debris and pet waste, and repair it occasionally as certain sections wear out.
Do those things and your lawn will last for 20-25 years. No more mowing, or fertilizer maintenance and several years of truly free artificial grass ownership.
