Easy Steps to Making Your Artificial Lawn Irresistible

But how can you maintain your artificial lawn? Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
Install an irrigation system for the best-looking yard every time. No one wants to see brown patches of grass! Make sure that it is set on “drip” so the water doesn’t just evaporate away or pool at the roots. Test out different spray settings, too; some might work better than others depending on where your lawn is located and what type of ground coverings you have.
Check the grass regularly for patches that need to be cut, and give the blades a good haircut if they are getting too long.
If you’ve got kids or pets running through your yard all of the time, sprinkle some lawn spikes around to keep them from damaging it!
Keep in mind that artificial turf is best for low-traffic areas like patios or decks rather than high-traffic zones such as front yards. The more people who walk on it day after day, the faster its life span will come to an end!
Mow when necessary – but don’t overwater! This means not mowing more often than once per week, as this will lead to bald spots and other issues. *Add mulch around trees, flower beds, etc. to help with water retention and also make your yard look more natural. *Get a good lawn rake if you need to remove leaves or debris from the grass, so that it doesn’t pile up on one area too much.*
Also, don’t forget to fertilize your lawn at least once or twice a year! Make sure to keep your artificial lawn tidy by sweeping off dust and dirt once a month, too.
