How to Maintain your Artificial Turf in the Winter

A common question from our clients is:

“What do we do with our lawns in the winter?”

And the answer is simple: Nothing.

It may seem like a silly answer but you really aren’t required to do anything to your turf throughout the winter.

SYNLawn Artificial Turf is designed to withstand the elements year-round. You simply treat it like real grass; in the fall rake the leaves, in the winter let the snow fall, in the spring rake the leaves leftover from fall and just enjoy! Summer maintenance is virtually eliminated. No more mowing or watering lawns, picking weeds, fertilizing, aerating, dealing with holes or patchy areas – it’s in perfect condition all year. And as a bonus for pet owners – no more muddy paws!

Here are a few care and maintenance tips to keep your lawn looking great for years to come:

  • Rain is the best cleaner, but if you live in an area where there is limited rain, you can use a sponge mop to clean up lightly soiled areas or hose them down.
  • Clean any spills as quickly as possible, you can blot them or use an absorbent, which can be swept or vacuumed.
  • Brushing periodically is also recommended, mostly for the areas that are high traffic.

With those simple steps you can be the envy of your neighbours and keep your lawn looking perfect year after year.
