Protecting Your Artificial Grass Investment

At Grizzly Turf, we aren’t surprised to know that our customers take their new synthetic grass installation seriously. Accordingly, we get asked all the time how property owners can preserve their new investment. We want you to make the most of your new, beautiful artificial grass landscaping – we’ve broken down the basics of synthetic grass and how you can protect your new investment.

How Does Artificial Grass Work?

For the most part, artificial grass is created using three essential materials: nylon, polypropylene and polyethylene. By combining these three materials, we can create a synthetic grass product that can withstand the elements and the toughest of foot traffic. This durability makes artificial grass the perfect choice for homes with large families, commercial complexes and sports fields!

What Makes Synthetic Grass a Good Investment?

More than ever, property owners are seeing the value in artificial grass installation and deciding to make the switch – and it’s no surprise they’re doing so! Artificial grass is non-toxic, non-allergenic, and is the ultimate low-maintenance landscaping solution. People from all walks of life can immediately enjoy spending time on artificial turf and bask in its natural look and feel. And speaking of low-maintenance, artificial grass doesn’t require mowing or excessive watering – your investment will immediately pay for itself!

How to Protect Your Artificial Grass Investment

When you make the choice to invest in artificial grass installation, you’re making the first step toward preserving your new synthetic turf landscaping for years to come. However, if you want to ensure that your synthetic grass performs at optimal levels, consider taking these extra steps:

  • Trim the branches of nearby trees that could fall on your artificial grass. Fallen branches and debris can cause significant damage to your synthetic turf.
  • Use a strong brush to sweep away debris. For artificial grass surfaces, you’ll need to use one with synthetic bristles to prevent damage to your lawn.
  • Stay ahead of cleaning any messes left by pets. Pet waste can be cleaned using a water and vinegar mixture or by contracting a professional artificial grass maintenance service.
