Artificial grass is a low maintenance alternative to real lawns, and although many people believe that artificial means no maintenance – that’s not entirely true. While thankfully not requiring any watering or mowing, even fake lawns need a little TLC on a regular basis to prolong its life, and keep it looking fresher for longer!
Some ways your artificial lawn can start to lose its look:
North facing, shaded areas are more susceptible to moss as the dark, damper conditions allow it to fester and grow.
Luckily, the experts at Cheshire Artificial Grass are on hand to help you with your artificial grass care. This allows you to keep it looking perfect for years to come, and maintain that ‘just installed’ look. If you look after the lawn it will look after you, by providing a amazing outdoor space that can be used year round with no mess.
Enjoy your artificial lawn for longer with our unique care package to keep your grass fresh, clean, and evergreen all year round. Over time, artificial lawns can deteriorate without proper care. Organic material can build up, creating an unpleasant and unsafe surface, that is impossible to enjoy. After all, it is low maintenance, not no maintenance.
The CAG Care package includes:
Clear Up – We start by using a leaf blower, to clear all the loose debris on the surface. Our mechanical outdoor vacuum removes surface debris and helps to remove organic matter in the pile.
Health Check – This includes join and edging checks and any small repairs carried out. As well as, re-invigorating sand infills to alleviate drainage issues, (if required).
Deep Clean – Mechanical power brush with the pile to unroot and remove organic debris and weeds that are deeper into the pile.
Sanitisation – Spray with artificial grass cleaner (antibacterial) and de-odourise to clean and refresh the grass, so it is safe and more hygienic.
Revitalization – We use an artificial grass power brush, to get deep into the grass as well as to revive the pile.

How to look after your artificial grass
Artificial grass is extraordinarily resistant to weeds and other annoying vegetation, but somehow, those pesky weeds can still crop up from time to time! If any mosses or weeds do manage to sneak through your artificial turf, then you should use a water-based weed killer just like you would on a regular lawn.
When other organic materials such as sticks or leaves start to build up on your turf, it can interrupt your garden’s surface drainage. This organic matter should be periodically removed to stop water building up.
Don’t worry if your artificial garden attracts stains, any stain can be safely cleaned up using warm water and washing up liquid. For stubborn stains you should use special cleaning products like mineral spirits to help maintain the integrity of your plastic turf. Having a dedicated artificial grass brush will also help perk the fibres back up.
