Aftercare Guide for Artificial Grass

When leaves aren’t removed, they will compost and lead to the growth of moss and weeds. Using a weed killer is possible but it’s better to prevent it. Also don’t enter the lawn if it is full of leaves, remove the leaves first.
In order to keep the grass in the best possible condition, it is recommended to regularly brush the grass in accordance with the amount of ‘traffic’ it gets. Brushing the grass will keep the fibers upright for a longer time, enhancing the natural look of your lawn.
Winter conditions are not a problem for, it will not damage due to frost or break at entry. However, if snow is stamped into the grass and an icy layer has been formed, this may not be removed manually in order to prevent the fibers from damaging. This must melt naturally.
