If you’ve recently installed artificial grass in your San Diego, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Santa Ana or Phoenix home or athletic facility, you may have noticed that weeds are still able to grow. Although synthetic turf installation will drastically decrease weed growth throughout your yard, weeds can still penetrate through seams in your turf or around the perimeter if you aren’t diligent about synthetic turf maintenance.
Luckily, there are several hassle-free ways to remove weeds from your synthetic turf and prevent them from regrowing. Here are three of the most common ways to eliminate weeds in your artificial grass.
1. Use Boiling Water
One of the quickest and easiest ways to kill weeds in your turf is by pouring boiling water over them. Boiling water will cause the weeds to wither and die without damaging your turf blades.
Once the weeds have died, you can pull them up and throw them away. If your weeds haven’t died after the first douse with water, they may have a deeper root system and require a second round of boiling water to kill them completely.
2. Use Vinegar Spray
If you want to make your own all-natural weed killer for at-home synthetic turf maintenance, you can use a simple vinegar mixture. Fill a spray bottle with four parts white vinegar and one part water; you can also add other weed-killing ingredients like vodka, apple cider vinegar or dish soap to increase its potency.
Once you have your mixture, spray it generously onto the weeds and wait for a couple of days. If they haven’t died in this time, respray them as needed until they’ve fully withered. Once they’re dead, you can pull them easily out of your artificial grass.
