How long does artificial grass last?

One of the most important and frequent questions we are asked is “How long does artificial grass last?” The lifespan of artificial grass is dependent on a lot of factors, but generally, it can last 15-25 years.

Here are a few things you can do to keep your grass fresh and last longer.

Cleaning

This may be a given, but cleaning your turf will help it last longer. Giving your turf a rinse with the hose a couple of times a month and raking away any debris will keep anything from accumulating between the grass blades. If your pets use the turf area, you’ll have to do a bit more frequent cleaning. To get rid of any stains and odors, a Turf Bomb sanitizing clean will do the trick.

We discussed deep cleaning your turf in this blog post from last month if you want to find out more. 

Power Broom

Using a power broom on your turf about once a year will help restore your turf to a like-new appearance. The power broom works to remove traffic wear patterns and fix any flat spots or matting. This will be a great help in increasing your turf’s longevity!

Avoiding Localized Heating

 

Localized heating can occur when focused sunlight scorches and melts artificial grass. Reflections from windows, glass furniture, and machinery can all result in localized heating for your turf. Blocking any reflections by moving, covering, or tinting the culprit will be key to ensuring your turf lives its best life. For more info on localized heating, check out this blog post.

 

Artificial grass can last 15-25 years, depending on the grass itself and the bit of maintenance required to keep it beautiful.
