One of the best things about artificial grass is that it is incredibly easy to clean.

Start by rinsing your lawn once a week with water and factor in one deep clean per month.

How Do You Get Debris Out of Artificial Grass?

Before you begin cleaning your artificial grass, you first want to make sure that it is clear of any debris such as fallen leaves or branches. Using a leaf blower or lawn rake is an easy way to collect debris. Choose one corner of your yard and blow or rake any debris towards it, then collect it for removal. You will likely only need to make one pass of your yard to remove any big pieces before moving on to a more thorough cleaning. Always make sure to follow up by rinsing your lawn with water to remove any small debris that might not have been picked up by a rake or leaf blower.

Essential Tools for Artificial Grass Maintenance

After making the decision to install artificial grass in your yard, you will likely want to put together a lawn maintenance toolkit to ensure that you have everything you’ll need to keep your lawn looking fresh. As mentioned above, a lawn rake and leaf blower are essential tools to have on hand for artificial grass maintenance. You might also want to pick up a cleaner for your synthetic grass, as well as a nozzle for the end of your garden hose that will make spraying down your lawn easy and quick.

Understanding how to properly care for your artificial grass is a great way to ensure that it stays clean and looks great for years to come!
