Artificial grass is a large investment that you hope to last a lifetime.
Over the years there have been tons of advancements and up-to-date improvements that have been made to artificial turf products. One of the main advantages of artificial grass is the longevity that is offers compared to past generations of grass. Long gone are the days of ugly, stiff and waterlogged artificial turf. Today’s turfs are guaranteed to last at least 10 years, but many have the lifespan of 25 years. There are two factors that affect the longevity of artificial grass.
Lawns and other outdoor surfaces are subject to constant damage and the amount and type of wear and tear it endures will impact the longevity significantly. Any homeowner or business considering artificial turf for their lawn or property should take into consideration children and pet usage; these will definitely present more wear and tear and will require special attention. Artificial turf is generally not affected by weather elements and can stand the heat of the summer and the bone-chilling winter temperatures. The foot traffic is more likely to cause damage to your artificial lawn rather than weather. Wear and tear can happen but with a little maintenance, it can easily be minimized.
Artificial turf requires little steps to extend its life. Raking and brushing with a non-metal brush will dislodge any compacted area in the infill. Regular brushing will all heighten the blades and help them hold up longer to create a more natural, lush look. Another way to easily maintain artificial grass is daily or weekly rinsing. Depending on your individual situation, some grasses do not need to be rinsed of debris but once a week. Rinsing with a bleach or vinegar solution will also help eliminate discoloration and odors. Minor repairs over the years will also increase your artificial turf’s lifespan. Paint over stains and fix seams and small tears before they become a large problem. The little maintenance that artificial grass requires is well worth the pleasure it brings to your home or business.
