How to Keep Your Artificial Grass Clean

One of the advantages of installing artificial grass is that you don’t have to take care of the maintenance as much as you would have needed to if it were a natural grass lawn. This is because the maintenance level for artificial grass is remarkably low, this comes in handy for many people, especially the ones living a very busy life. However, a minimum degree of maintenance is required, and this too should be done in a certain way. In this article we shall talk about some of the ways in which you can clean your artificial grass and restore the fine sheen and the greenery keeping it looking fresh. Clean it on a regular basis- Cleaning on a frequent, if not on a regular basis, becomes important, especially if the green turf is placed outside. What do you need to clean it? Well, you can make use of a leave blower. A leaf blower can effectively clear the debris from on top of the grass, which would primarily include dust, dirt, stones and pebbles, fallen leaves and fallen branches, especially after a storm. Push the debris towards one corner of the yard. Collect all the unnecessary materials and put them in the appropriate bins. If the grass is installed inside the house, you can go for a vacuum cleaner. An everyday vacuum cleaner can be used to get rid of the light debris, dust particles and other unwanted particles from the artificial grass. Wash- Washing the artificial turf occasionally is important. Frankly speaking, this is a very easy task, and does not require much effort. This should be done after you have removed all the dust, and the debris from the turf using a leaf-blower or a vacuum cleaner. You can use a hose to rinse the turf and get rid of the dirt that remains. The hose can be very effective as the pressure of water is high which potentially pushes the tough, sticky dirt away from the material. Brush the grass using a broom- This is to be done before you rinse the turf, and also after you has rinsed the turf once it has had enough time to dry. A broom or a brush can do away with the remaining lighter layers of dust that are likely to remain after the cleaning (as most dust particles are suspended in the air after cleaning only to reside or fall down again). In any case, the processes involved are very simple and can be achieved in no time. For artificial grass in Hertfordshire, get in touch today.

Lawn Maintenance: Natural Grass vs Artificial Grass

Maintaining a lawn has its own aesthetics perks. A good and beautiful lawn can uplift your spirit and improve your mood. However, not everyone can put in the time to take care of a lawn. Maintaining a beautiful lawn takes time and consistency. That’s why more people are making the switch to artificial grass. Out artificial lawns look just as eye catching as natural grass, with the added bonus of requiring almost no maintenance. In this article we are going to look at the differences in natural and artificial lawns. Water requirements– A natural lawn requires frequent watering to remain lush and green, this can be just once a week or in the high heat of summer once every other day. Without the constant watering you could see your lawn turning a nasty shade of yellow and dying. However, artificial grass doesn’t require any water to remain looking healthy. You may need to use a small amount of water if you’re cleaning your lawn, but it can go indefinitely without the need of water. Even in the highest heat of summer, it will never fade and will remain a beautiful shade of green. Length Control– With a natural lawn to keep it at the optimum length you need to mow it regularly and if you have a large lawn this can become very demanding. Since artificial grass doesn’t grow, it will remain the same length all year round. You choose the length when you order, and it will remain that perfect length, the only cutting required is to make sure it all fits perfectly. Pest and Weed Control– It’s the bane of gardening, removing weeds and pests. You spend more time weeding your lawn than anything else. Nothing is worse than spending so much time removing weeds and laying down weed and pest killer, only to have to repeat this later that month. Each of our lawns come with a weed prevention membrane that detours all weeds. You may still find the odd one around the edges but removing one is a lot easier than an entire lawn of them. As for pests, because the grass is fake, our lawns don’t attract pests so there’s no need to use pest removal. Environmentally Friendly– With each point above it’s clear that artificial grass is the more environmentally friendly option. It doesn’t grow, so there’s no need to use fertilizers and saves water. Not to mention the power saved from not having to use a lawn mower. There’s no need for pest or weed killers, cutting back on the harsh chemicals used.

Advantages of Installing Artificial Grass in Biggleswade

Here, in this article we are going to talk about some of the ways in which the installation of artificial grass can be advantageous for you. Low maintenance- The maintenance cost of artificial grass is extremely low. But why should you consider putting a synthetic lawn in the very first place. Well, for starters, its application is versatile. More importantly, they are particularly useful if you have allergy issues. Children are usually allergic to grass, and this is precisely why synthetic grass can be an effective alternative for natural grass. A child can therefore benefit from the experience of playing outside and outdoor activities. Versatility- As mentioned above, artificial grass is very versatile. How? Just because it says ‘’grass’’ does not mean that it can only be used outside. It can be made a part of interior home décor as well. This is precisely why you can choose to use artificial grass on more than just one space. In fact, many people today, put artificial grass, inside their bedrooms as part of their interior décor. It is, however, most commonly used for landscaping. Give a realistic touch- The demand for artificial grass has increased drastically over the recent years. This is because the quality of the production has drastically improved. This means that our lawns look more realistic. Also, the fibres used in the making of our lawns vary accordingly in texture and colour to give a more realistic appearance and feel. This is an aesthetic enhancement.  These are also very effective for landscape projects as they can be shaped, curved and designed as per the shape, type and dimension of the garden. Covers up the grass-less patches- It is possible that some parts of your garden may not receive adequate amount of sunlight, because of which shades are likely to appear creating dark patches. Grass may not grow easily in those shady patches, because of which, the aesthetics of the garden is compromised. Artificial grass is a great solution to the problem. Not only can it restore the aesthetics of the garden, it can also fill up the patches and provide a very realistic appearance, which also requires minimal maintenance. Solution to buildings and housing complexes with limited or no garden space- In the contemporary world, it is hard to find housing complexes and buildings with a considerable garden space. Either it is limited, or it is negligible. Under such circumstances, artificial grass is the solution to the problem, as they can be easily installed over almost any surface, over limited space, and requires almost minimal maintenance.
