Cleaning Artificial Grass

Every day, more homeowners are switching to artificial turf with help from Grizzly Turf, the leading artificial grass installer in Southern California. We constantly hear reviews from our customers about how easy their synthetic grass is to take care of compared to their previous natural grass lawn!

While you won’t need to worry about mowing, watering or fertilizing your synthetic turf, It’s worth noting that you’ll still need to give it a little TLC to keep it looking its best. By following these three essential steps, you’ll be sure to have a clean, green artificial grass surface for years to come!

Prevent Matting by Cross-Brushing Your Artificial Turf

Over time, your artificial grass blades will experience matting – the flattening of your blades due to foot traffic, furniture or excessive use. Matting can cause issues with your artificial turf’s drainage, resulting in water buildup and bacteria growth.

Preventing matting is easy – just use an artificial grass brush or rake to cross-brush your blades. This will keep your blades standing upright and help remove any debris, such as fallen leaves or tree branches. When cross-brushing your synthetic turf, be sure to use a brush with synthetic bristles to prevent long-term damage to your lawn.

Dogs are Fun – Their Waste Isn’teg

While it’s well-established that dogs are our best friends, it doesn’t seem to feel that way when it comes to cleaning up after them. If neglected, pet waste – both solid and liquid – can penetrate your synthetic grass surface, resulting in foul odors and bacteria accumulation.

As soon as you see your furry friend doing his “business” on your artificial turf, take action to clean it up. Use a garden hose to wash away urine and let your synthetic turf’s drainage do the rest; pick up solid waste and hose down the affected area to remove any residue. For more pungent odors, use a mixture of equal parts vinegar and warm water to clean and disinfect your artificial grass.

If All Else Fails, Leave it to the Pros

We get it – turf cleaning may not always be feasible with your busy schedule. Between work, taking care of your family and handling unexpected daily challenges, artificial turf maintenance can become one of those things you want to do but simply can’t find the time to get done. If that’s the case, the solution is simple – let a professional handle it!

At Grizzly Turf, we partner with TurFresh, the trusted name in turf maintenance, to help our customers find a turf cleaning solution that best fits their needs. Professional artificial grass maintenance services like TurFresh have everything they need to re-bloom your turf blades, top-up your infill and disinfect your artificial grass, leaving it looking as good as the day it was installed. 

Artificial Grass Tips for Pet Owners

If you’re considering artificial grass installation, chances are you might also be a concerned pet owner. If that is the case, you may be wondering how your synthetic grass installation will affect your furry friends. 

At Grizzly Turf, we want to put your mind at ease – while there are some factors to keep in mind when installing your artificial turf, we can help you every step of the way to ensure that synthetic grass makes sense for you and your dogs.

Artificial Turf Quality is Everything

In most cases, artificial grass is artificial in name only. High-quality synthetic grass should look and feel as close to natural grass as possible – this means that you’ll need to pay attention to the quality of your synthetic turf.

When consulting with your artificial grass installer, ensure that the synthetic grass used has been certified pet-friendly. Artificial pet turf from Grizzly Turf has been specially engineered to the highest quality using state-of-the-art technology and materials – our synthetic grass can withstand even the most vigorous pet activity, making it the most reliable landscaping solution on the market for your pets. 

Protection against Odors

Pet owners everywhere know that great enjoyment with their pets also requires a fair amount of responsibility – this is especially true when it comes to cleaning up odors. Natural grass aborbs pet urine, which can create some undesirable odors, so it’s no suprise that pet owners flock to artificial grass as a pet-friendly alternative.

Ask your artificial grass installer to install a turf deodorizer during your installation process. At Grizzly Turf, we’ve partnered with TurFresh, the nation’s leading artificial turf maintenance service, to offer our customers a turf deodorizing experience like no other!

Artificial Grass Installation Quality

Despite the quality of your artificial grass, it will only be as good as the team installing it. It could be tempting to attempt a DIY artificial pet turf installation, but this is something that should be left to professionals.

A professional artificial grass installer like Grizzly Turf will work with you to identify any safety and health hazards that could affect your pets in the long run.
