Avoid corrosive chemicals near your grass
Corrosive cleaners should be kept away from your artificial lawn, over time the use of these chemicals on your grass will cause irreversible damage, and the aesthetics of your lawn will suffer.
You need to ensure you keep on top of your grass, and monitor what you’re putting on it. Leaves over a period time can start to release corrosive chemicals, as well as dead bugs and animal faeces. Therefore, ensure you are regularly removing organic products that can cause this effect.
The right equipment for your lawn

Stains are always likely to happen; therefore, it is important you treat them straight away before they’ve settled properly. It is best to avoid using strong corrosive chemicals on the stains as this could damage the grass further, it is best hosing the stain down instead.
Distribute the fibres
Using a rake throughout your grass will evenly distribute the fibres and make your grass look as good as new. It is important to regularly do this to look for any unexpected weeds, and it helps the grass wear evenly rather than in parts.
Sometimes weeds will be able to poke their way through the artificial grass, so it’s important you purchase a mild weed killer, ensure you check it’s not too powerful otherwise this could affect the grass.
