Caring For Your SYNLawn Artificial Grass

A fake lawn (artificial grass) is cost effective, saving you time and money.  Caring for your SYNLawn® artificial grass is quick and easy in comparison to maintaining natural grass, saves on water and looks real.

Consider the expense of lawn equipment, fuel for this equipment, fertilizers, lawn damage that require re-seeding, etc., etc. and then add the costs associated with using water, never mind the water restrictions during the hottest months and it seems overwhelming.  And this is if you do the work!  If you hire a landscaper to maintain your yard the price just skyrocketed.

Despite the fact fake lawns are so much easier and less expensive to maintain, there is still some work involved.  Like any surface there are environmental factors, often pet visitations and human considerations that require looking after.

Some garden tools you may want to hang onto:

  • garden hose
  • rake or leaf blower
  • garbage bags
  • fertilizer spreader (optional) for applying sand

Upon installation we apply enviro fill to help the blades of grass stand up and look natural.  A stiff brush or raking, especially in high traffic areas help maintain this new appearance.  Applying silica sand or enviro fill with a fertilizer spreader annually gives a quick lift!  Washing the lawn with a garden hose to clean any air pollution, dog urine or debris will give your artificial grass a brighter look too.  A leaf blower, non-metal leaf rake or stiff brush keeps the grass vibrant and looking fresh.

Of course, if you prefer not to do the maintenance and store the garden tools you can schedule a service call with our team for Spring or Fall. A SYNLawn® grass installation is an investment.  With up to 15 years warranty you want to keep your grass looking new.  Maintenance is not required, not always necessary, but always a good idea.

If you are using your fake lawn as a pet run you will want to take additional care.  Hosing and even using a mild mixture of a gentle detergent or vinegar and water helps wash away the urine scent. Applying our Zeolite product that absorbs the odour is recommended as well.  Picking up the feces when hardened is easier.  That’s all there is to it!  Your dog can’t dig holes in our grass due to the design. Fleas, ticks and other pests don’t like artificial grass so are far less likely to be a health problem for your pet.  Dogs love to run and roll on fake grass because it feels natural to them.

With the Okanagan sun shining brightly so many days of the year you can have a cooler fake lawn with our products that have an exclusive HeatBloc™ technology.  Cooler on the feet!

Puppy Potty Training Pet Pads – Get Yours Today!

There’s a new puppy at SYNLawn® Okanagan and her name is Pearl. Puppy potty training pet pads are especially handy when house training! In fact, they are absolutely essential if your puppy is indoors at all.

So Proud!

Pet Pad in Crate

At 10 weeks old, Pearl is still learning manners and all about puppy potty training.  SYNLawn pet pads are the perfect tool for this job!  In the picture to the right we add an artificial grass pet pad to her crate for night time.  She feels safe and secure and we rest knowing there won’t be any ‘accidents’ on our floors.   We add a cozy blanket for her to cuddle on at bedtime.  In the morning we take the pet pad out and rinse it in the laundry sink or hose it off outside (as seen below).

During the day we place 2 small synthetic grass pet pads on a boot tray in the room she plays in.  These help with those instantaneous moments when getting outside isn’t possible.  She has a place to quickly squat that feels like grass and helps her understand the concept of going outside.

So quick and easy to clean!

Just rinse out the urine and good to go.  Any other messes can be easily picked up and flushed down the toilet.

The boot tray adds extra security for moisture!

This is cleaner and easier than using a litter box and your puppy learns that doing his/her business on grass is the way to go.


We don’t add detergents or irritants as puppies can be sensitive to scents.

Pick up your puppy potty training pad at SYNLawn®.  We are located at the corner of McCurdy Road and Hwy. 97 but have intentions to move locations soon so stay tuned for updates.
