Have you had artificial grass installed by Grosvenor Grass in your garden?
Artificial grass is low maintenance, not no maintenance. To get the very best out of your artificial grass, there are a few simple steps that we suggest to keep it in tip-top condition.
KEEP IT CLEAN
After a while, soil, twigs and other unwanted stuff might find their way onto your grass. This won’t affect it at all, but if left over a long time it could encourage weeds to grow. Simply go over your grass with a stiff brush or a plastic rake (but not a metal one), or a garden blower/vac. If you have animals using a power washer is recommended from time to time to wash away any animal urine that the rain doesn’t keep on top of.
A GOOD BRUSH UP
From time to time, give your grass a good going over with a stiff brush or plastic rake. This will perk up the pile of your grass, especially in areas that aren’t used so much. It’s a bit like giving your hair a comb and will smarten up the look of your grass.
TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS.
We’re sure you already know – artificial grass is great for pets. Just let them do their business as usual – it won’t discolour or die like natural grass. However, now and again, just give your grass a bit of spruce up with a hose down/ power wash and good spray of our artificial grass cleaner. This will freshen it up and reduce the build up of odours.
DEALING WITH WEEDS AND MOSS.
If you have artificial grass installed, this will reduce weeds and moss growing, however it won’t get rid of the threat totally. Unfortunately, weeds can attach themselves onto anything. Most weed killers are fine to use on your artificial grass however, a patch test is always recommended (wait at least 24 hours and check there is no visual effect ). Just pick the weeds out carefully, don’t worry, you won’t harm the artificial grass!

You may find that you require a quote for other maintenance work i.e..
- Work on your sub base, due to extremes in weather, settlement, mole or vermin problems, excess water being poured on to your garden ( paddling and swimming pools being emptied straight onto your grass ). All these can cause your base work to shift and make your garden feel lumpy.
- New wooden batons, due to age or changes to your garden shape.
- Damages caused to your artificial grass i.e. pets, burns ( caused by BBQ’s, Fire Pits or reflective decorative garden ornaments )
- If Grosvenor Grass installed your grass originally, any enquiries relating to maintenance or repairs will be favourably priced. Call for a quotation.
