CARING FOR YOUR PUTTING GREEN
From avid golfers to hobby golf enthusiasts, nothing is more exciting than having a personalized artificial turf putting green. With a backyard synthetic grass putting green, golfers of all ages can practice their short game from the comfort of their own homes. However, like most things in life, synthetic grass putting greens aren’t all fun and games. While it’s true that artificial turf is easier to maintain, you must remember that low maintenance does not equal no maintenance. By following these quick and easy steps, you’ll keep a fresh, evergreen artificial grass putting green that meets even the most stringent golfers’ expectations.
Brush Your Synthetic Turf
Start by removing any branches, leaves or other debris from your artificial grass putting green. Next, brush your synthetic grass blades to keep them upright. By keeping your blades standing as they should, you’re ensuring the same quality of ball roll as the day you had your artificial turf putting green installed. When brushing your synthetic grass putting green, always remember to use a brush made specifically for artificial grass or a soft rake. Brushes and rakes with metal bristles will damage your synthetic turf.
Rinse Away Debris
Say goodbye to harmful chemicals – rinse down your artificial turf putting green with your standard garden hose. Monthly turf rinsing will help clear out debris, pollen and dust and prevent future buildup.
Artificial Turf Power Broom
If your synthetic grass putting green is in high demand with heavy foot traffic, consider using a power broom to keep your artificial turf blades upright. Power brooms help fluff synthetic turf, improving the quality of play for everyone!
Clean up After Your Pets
Artificial turf is a dog’s best friend – as such, it is extremely common for your furry friend to relieve themselves on your synthetic grass putting green. While it is tempting to put off doggy waste cleanup, it is crucial that you clean up the mess right away.
Pick up solid waste with a turf-friendly rake and a dustpan; urine can be hosed off and rinsed as you would any other debris.
Address Minor Stains
Like pet waste, minor stains should be cleaned up as soon as you notice them. Because synthetic grass is stain-resistant, cleaning up spills should be a very minimal task – just use eco-friendly soap and a small amount of vinegar to clean up any small stains and mildew!
Pull out Weeds
Although a rare occurrence, weeds can still grow out of your artificial grass. Weeds can come through cracks, small holes and your turf’s edges. For these reasons, it’s essential to pull weeds out as soon as possible to prevent future growth.
Leave It to the Pros
