One of the benefits of buying an artificial lawn is that it requires less maintenance than natural grass. But that doesn’t mean that an artificial lawn will magically take care of itself. They go through the same wear and tear that regular lawns go through. They get dirty. They get smelly. They get messy. So you will need artificial lawn supplies to ensure that your artificial lawn keeps that clean, fresh look. Artificial lawn suppliers like Purchase Green can provide you with the industry’s top artificial lawn supplies — including affordable accessories and tools for upkeep and maintenance. Here a few essentials for your artificial lawn, whether you are already an owner or are considering investing.
Artificial grass is not self-sanitizing like natural grass. While you will save water, which is good for the environment and your wallet, artificial lawns do require that spray it clean regularly with sanitizing agents. Purchase Green provides top-rated cleaning products specially designed for synthetic turf that are non-toxic, biodegradable, hypoallergenic, safe for kids and pets. Maintenance is as easy as attaching your garden hose to the sprayer!
If you attend visit sports stadiums around the world, you will notice that the artificial turf — whether a football field, soccer pitch or baseball diamond — is meticulously groomed before and after the game. You will want to purchase a turf rake (these are also used in the carpet industry) in order to bloom your artificial grass. The long nylon tines reach into the fiber of your synthetic turf and pull the blades so they stand upright for maximum bloom. When you groom your synthetic grass with an artificial turf rake, it will look like the professional grass fields of your favorite sports teams.
If you own a pet, then you know that they don’t always defecate in the appropriate places. Sometimes they urinate directly on your lawn, leaving pet odors. This is not a problem with artificial turf infill for pets — the natural, organic artificial grass infill product that significantly reduces pet urine odors. Zeolites — natural, non-toxic substances; copper slag; silica sand; rounded quartz core; and deodorizer pellets are all infill options for mitigating pet odors.
If you are concerned about weeds growing through your artificial grass, you can lay out what is called a geotextile barrier, or consider purchasing a Dewitt Typar Artificial Grass Weed Barrier from Purchase Green or your local hardware store.
Know that there is maintenance to be done when considering the switch to an artificial lawn. But if you buy the correct products for cleaning, grooming, removing odors and blocking weeds, your artificial lawn will keep that brand new look and smell for years to come.
