One of the benefits of having synthetic grass is that it’s not nearly as demanding as natural grass. With artificial grass, the beauty is that very little maintenance is involved. In order to keep your putting green in optimal shape, some upkeep is required. Here are some tips to ensure your synthetic grass putting green remains beautiful, functional, and in great condition.
Brush The Green
After removing branches, leaves, and any other visible debris, brush your green to keep the grass blades upright. This step will help ensure that the synthetic turf maintains a quality ball roll. Brushing will also keep the turf performing well after constant foot traffic.
A brush made especially for synthetic turf or a soft rake can be used on your green. Brush carefully to avoid damaging your putting green.
Rinse and Hose the Turf
Once you’ve removed all trash and visible debris, rinse your artificial turf putting green to help keep debris, pollen, and dust from building up. Rinse your turf once a month to clear out debris between the fine blades of your synthetic turf. There’s no need to use any chemicals.
Use a Power Broom
Under constant foot traffic, artificial grass blades can start to lie flat and lose their vibrancy. Using a power broom helps fluff artificial grass turf. Power brooms also help keep the grass standing in an upright position.
Cleanup After Pets
When there’s pet waste on your turf, it’s best to remove it as soon as you see it. Hose and rinse the areas following the cleanup. It’s important to clean after pets regularly to ensure that your synthetic putting grass remains clean and odor-free.
Clean Minor Stains
The key to cleaning minor stains is to act quickly. One of the benefits of synthetic turf is that it’s stain-resistant, which makes cleaning up after spills easy. Eco-friendly soap or a small amount of vinegar can be used to remove minor spots and mildew on your synthetic grass putting green.
While rare, it is possible for weeds to grow through artificial turf. Weeds can sometimes make their way to the surface through cracks, small holes, and around edges. Be sure to remove them as soon as you see them.
Though synthetic turf requires minimal maintenance, it’s still crucial to have it periodically cleaned in order to ensure that it’s beautiful, functional and retains its value for as long as possible.
