In the spring and summer, it can be hard to make time to maintain your lawn. You have to set aside a whole day of weed picking, bush trimming, and lawn mowing, just for it all to grow back in a week. Owning a lawn can be a lot of work and it can take up a lot of your time, but with artificial turf you can cut off all the maintenance completely and ATS Palm Springs can help you with choosing the best product to fit your needs.
When talking about the maintenance that goes into taking care of your artificial turf, there is not much to talk about. The installation of the turf might be the most work that you actually have to put into this new plot of land that you are installing in your lawn.
To install the turf, you have to dig up all of the grass that is already grown. You need to turn your lawn in a flat space with no grass, if you are placing the turf over dirt or concrete, your work is pretty much done already. You just need to make sure there are no bumps in the way. Once you have a flat spot to place the turf, you can cut out the size of turf that you need, measure it out so it fits perfectly, and you are done. That is all there is to the installation.
Now you have to fill up the water infill, this will keep the turf light and fluffy. Once you do that, take a rake or a broom and brush through the turf to fluff it up. This is not a step that you have to take, if you are placing the turf on a golf course, you don’t need to worry about fluffing up the ground, you can keep it flat. But if you are placing the turf in your lawn or in a dog park, you can fluff it up and it will be soft and no one will be able to tell the different between your artificial turf and the natural grass around it.
It is also very easy to clean if an animal decides to do their business on your lawn. Find the spot, pick up the number 2, and spray the spot down with a vinegar and water mix spray. This will take away all of the germs and sterilize the spot. It will also pull the smell and make it fresh and new again. If it was a number 1 and you can’t locate the exact spot, take the spray and spray throughout the whole turf and rake through it so every spot gets sterilized.
That is the only maintenance you have to worry about with artificial turf. So to answer your question, yes, it is very easy to maintain artificial grass.
