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.
