New Year, New Turf Lawn: 3 Basic Maintenance Tips

Now that you’ve chosen the smarter, less maintenance option for your yard, you might be wondering how to maintain an artificial turf lawn? Do you find yourself searching online, “how to maintain a Bakersfield synthetic grass lawn?” There’s a mountain of turf tips available online. We’re here to give our two cents on the matter.

Many homeowners across California have switched to artificial turf and they no longer miss the bugs, mowing, or expensive watering costs often associated with natural grass maintenance. Here at Courts & Greens, we support your decision to install a turf lawn and we’d like to help you maintain it as best as you can.

Here are our 3 basic maintenance tips on how to keep your artificial turf thriving.

Turf Is Less Fussy Than Real Grass

Synthetic grass doesn’t materialize the same issues that real grass does. Furthermore, turf doesn’t need the same routine maintenance that real grass does. A turf lawn doesn’t generate diseases, weeds, and excess irrigation.

However, it does experience foot traffic wear and tear as well as heat from the elements. Just because you took the progressive and cost-savings step in installing a turf lawn, doesn’t mean you won’t experience a little maintenance.

How to Maintain Artificial Turf – Stains

With children, weather contraints, and pets, you will need to enact occasional stain maintenance. Pet waste and high foot traffic can cause a visual stain on your turf over time. If you use your yard throughout the year, then dropped food or spilled drinks, high foot traffic, and other pet waste is bound to happen.

To clean these stains that might be due to drinks, waste, or the impact of human activity, consider these easy maintenance tips:
