For your artificial grass installation, a regular maintenance program is always recommended to ensure maximum life expectancy of your LazyLawn As an outdoor product open to the elements, there is inevitably some periodic light work you should carry out.
Follow these few simple steps:
The first step is to regularly remove leaves and debris using a petrol leaf blower (for best results), stiff brush, or plastic rake. Additionally, to limit the number of leaves falling onto the lawn, regularly trim back hedges and overhanging trees.
As the fake grass is susceptible to airborne seeds, regular maintenance in the form of a weed killer twice a year to the whole area is paramount. If any weeds do grow, these are easily removed.
If there is no transfer of dirt or soil, artificial grass is pretty much self-cleaning. However, if the ‘grass’ needs cleaning, hosing down using a light detergent and a stiff brush (or a mechanical brush for best results) is recommended.
Please be aware that outdoor mirrors, mirrored walls, reflective and shiny surfaces, and energy efficient windows can have an adverse effect on our surfaces, and as such, are not recommended to be used in any project where LazyLawn is laid, as any damage caused by such items will not be covered by any warranty.
Please be aware that barbeques and other items that generate heat should not be placed directly on the artificial lawn as they can burn the grass due to the intense heat generated from them. It is best practice to place BBQ’s on a patio.
We have had cases where clients have employed contractors to trim their trees who have then placed their motorised tools on the lawn, which has subsequently burnt the surface. Any damage caused by such items will not be covered by any warranty so please take care and advise any contractors in advance so they do not accidentally damage your synthetic turf.
It’s also a good idea to keep any magnifying glasses away from the kids on the lawn.
