Synthetic turf is the lawn of the future. Not only does synthetic grass look like the real thing, but it’s much easier on the environment and your water bill. Another benefit of artificial turf is how easy it is to maintain; there’s no need to mow it, water it, or seed it. That said, there is a small amount of maintenance you’ll need to do to keep your synthetic lawn looking good for years to come.

Monitor Weather Conditions
Getting into the habit of checking the weather forecast is a good idea for a number of reasons, including synthetic lawn maintenance. As it turns out, rain is excellent for keeping your turf clean. If the weatherman forecasts a downpour on Sunday, then you probably don’t need to clean the lawn on Saturday; Mother Nature will take care of it for you.
Brush Away Visible Debris
Every once in a while, you’ll want to remove some of the debris that has accumulated on your yard, just as you would a natural lawn. For example, you might want to get rid of leaves that may have fallen on your turf. The best way to do this is with a flexible rake—preferably not one made of metal, as that could damage your artificial grass. You’ll find that even a household brush can do the job, as artificial grass doesn’t hold onto debris as much as natural grass does.
Hose Down the Lawn
Dust and dirt will likely accumulate on your lawn over time. If the rain doesn’t take care of it, you should consider hosing down your lawn on a weekly basis. This will help boost your lawn’s longevity, get rid of allergens, and keep your yard looking nice and neat. Again, you don’t need to get the hose out if it’s rained recently, or if heavy rain is in the forecast.
