Artificial lawns can last for an extended time than normal grass, typically up to 12-15 years! They will get up to the fiercest weather and tremendous wear and tear. To make sure your lawn survives though, it’s important that you simply take proper care in the first place.

That being said, there are a few stuffs you can do to get extra longevity to your new lawn.
Although you’ll happily wave goodbye to monotonous mowing and wearisome watering, there are some small maintenance tasks that still may need to be completed, like cleaning the artificial grass. But that’s still worth the time spend. Taking a little bit of care will make your turf everlasting!
The best method to clean artificial grass
The best method of keeping your artificial grass surface clean is basically hooked into what needs cleaning up. for example, how you’d finish off after your pet would differ from how you’d remove a discarded chewing gum.
Using the wrong materials and products to scrub your artificial grass may end up damaging the turf, aesthetically or its functionality in terms of the system – or both. Here, Coastal Synthetic Turf details exactly how you must look after and clean your fake lawn.
Large debris & Small debris
Branches, twigs, odds, and ends of rubbish, while most of us remember to pick and take away big bits of rubbish from our lawn. Whether natural or artificial, that is a good habit to follow as it’s a simple way to improve the view of your garden in no time at all!
Since leaves, and seeds from nearby trees won’t just fell down into the soil, the solutions range from a leaf-blower to a brush. Keeping the grass free of this debris will make a greener and a fresh artificial lawn.
Food and drink spills
In most cases, the broom/rinse combo will handle most of the common problems linked to spillages of food or drink. Don’t try using harsh chemicals or cleaning agents, as they aren’t necessary and will bleach or otherwise damage your artificial lawn. Chewing gum has, now and again, has been noticed as a stubborn trouble maker. A plastic spatula could be useful in this case or just use an ice cube to relax the gum and let it slip lose that way.
Is it good to use a vacuum cleaner on your turf?
The answer is no. You should refrain from using a vacuum cleaner on your synthetic turf because the suction will remove the infill sand from the grass area. For regular maintenance, brushing with a stiff-bristled broom is usually the best option because it takes no time at all to do that.
