How To Look After Your Artificial Lawn?
Artificial grass is a low maintenance alternative to a real lawn, although many people believe that this means no maintenance. While fake lawns do not require watering or mowing like traditional lawns, there is still some upkeep required to make sure yours stays in good condition. Just like with any home (or, in this case, garden) furnishing, you need to care for your artificial lawn on a regular basis so that it has longevity and proves to be a good investment.
A little goes a long way and carrying out just a small amount of light maintenance work once a month can save you a huge job at the end of the year. Small jobs like brushing, weeding and cleaning will ensure that your artificial lawn stays looking great for years to come.
So, let's take a look at how to care for your artificial lawn in a way that keeps it green and lush for longer.
Artificial grass
Brush it Off
When artificial lawns are newly laid, they have a sand infill that slowly structures the turf. In order to ensure the turf is in optimum condition when it settles, it is important to let it settle. After this, the lawn will only require some maintenance. We would recommend you do this by brushing with a stiff, natural bristle broom.
When you do brush your lawn, be sure you brush it in all different directions, so you keep the turf pile bouncy and upright - think fluffy not combover!
Of course, you will need the best brush for the job and we suggest a stiff, natural-bristle brush which will be gentle but effective on your artificial grass. Although brushing might seem like light work, it will make a noticeable difference to the appearance and condition of your lawn.
Areas of higher foot traffic may require brushing more regularly to prevent blades from looking flattened or trampled.
Keep Your Lawn Free of Debris
Artificial grass lawns have a membrane backing that, though ideal for letting water run through, minimises the risk of unwanted plants and weeds that grow through normal grass patches. That being said, the tenacity of certain weeds and mosses mean that the odd one may come through anyway, so it is best to be prepared and know how to tackle weeds and moss should they appear.
Unlike when you weed natural grass, you can't go digging through your artificial grass with a trowel or fork. Instead, you have two choices. The first is to focus purely on the cosmetic, taking off the tops of weeds when they show through the grass, without really addressing the root of the problem.
Alternatively, you could use a moss or weed killer BUT if you do, make sure it is a water-based solution to avoid damaging the artificial turf. Once the moss and weeds are dead, you can simply remove them by hand or brush them off.
Any organic debris like leaves and dead plants should be removed from your artificial lawn as quickly as possible. This is because a build-up of organic matter can damage the lawn's drainage and encourage weed growth. You can collect the debris by hand, with a brush or even use a leaf blower - just make sure you keep on top of it.

Stubborn Stain Removal
The resistant material of an artificial grass lawn means that you ought to be able to remove stains and marks quickly, using hot soapy water (washing up liquid is fine for the job). Tougher oil marks and such can be removed using a cloth and some mineral spirits. While heavily diluted detergents can be used, it’s best to stick to specific artificial grass cleaning products to prevent damage.
If you have to clean up animal mess then make sure it is removed as soon as possible, followed by a wash of the area using hot soapy water where necessary.
Seasonal Maintenance
While regular brushing should take place monthly, there is some maintenance that only takes place during certain seasons. During the summer, when you are more likely to be out in the garden, high traffic areas should be carefully maintained. 

While your artificial lawn is protected against damage caused by frost, areas of heavy snowfall should be allowed to melt naturally. Removing compressed snow and ice can be damaging or cause thinning of artificial grass blades.
