4 Ways You Should Be Cleaning Your Artificial Grass Putting Green
A backyard putting green is a unique addition to any home. Whether you treated yourself or received it as a gift from a loved one, it makes sense that you want to treasure it, and that starts with care. In most cases, putting green turf in Toronto is self-maintaining. Still, to really get the most out of your artificial grass golf green, there are few easy things you can do that will maintain the functionality and extend its lifespan.
Why Should You Keep Up Regular Putting Green Care?
Like artificial grass backyards and lawns, putting green turf in Toronto doesn’t require time-intensive and expensive maintenance. Golf greens will remain green for years without treatments applied to natural grass, like watering or fertilization. But by assessing, cleaning, and putting a little extra care into a backyard putting green, you can keep it in good condition for longer.
Here are 4 easy to follow guidelines for backyard putting green care.
Pay Attention to Natural Debris
Leaves, twigs, rocks, and other items that exist naturally around your putting green may fall or blow onto your home putting green. Pick these items when you see them either by hand, raking, or sweeping. Not only will they affect the appearance of your putting green, but a buildup of debris will also interfere with how your backyard golf green plays.
Remove Any Organic Waste
Depending on the location of your artificial grass putting green in your backyard, it may be susceptible to falling fruit for neighbouring trees. If not removed and rinsed immediately, it may begin to decay and introduce bacteria to the area and attract unwanted pests. Fortunately, artificial grass is installed with bacteria deterring infill, making it incredibly difficult for mold and mildew to grow.
Brush or Rake Putting Green Turf
If artificial grass has been under heavy furniture or has endured significant foot traffic, the turf may begin to flatten. Don’t worry, this is only temporary. Grab a rake, brush, or broom and gently fluff grass. Make sure not to use a metal rake. Being too rough with artificial grass can be damaging over time.
Rinse Your Putting Green Turf
Regular washing of putting green turf in Toronto can easily eliminate many problems affecting your golf green. From animal waste, sugary drink spills, dust from hot, dry days, or sap from nearby plants, regularly rinsing your green with a hose will eliminate unwanted odours, bacteria, and sticky, unpleasant surfaces. When you choose artificial grass from Echoing Green, you can be confident that water will flow effortlessly without pooling or backing after a wash due to its built-in drainage capabilities.
