September is well and truly underway, and that means one very important thing for your garden: the weather is changing. As sure as we’ll see children dressed up as pirates and witches at some point, Autumn will inevitably bring a flurry of wet weather and cold winds. This means that, unfortunately, the summer will soon be gone for another year and your artificial lawn will be in need of some love.
But don’t worry, there is nowhere near the amount of maintenance required as with regular lawns, and this won’t eat up too much of your time. We’re just here to give you a few pointers to make sure your artificial lawn is looked after as the weather starts turning colder.
- With the blustery winds of Autumn come the falling leaves, conkers and other bits of bracken that will inevitably land on your artificial lawn. If these are left unattended, they can combine with the wet weather to make your garden feel like a bowl of corn flakes that have been left in milk for too long. You just need to get out there with a stiff brush and get rid of any unwanted sogginess before they start to rot.
- If it turns out to be a particularly cold Autumn, then there may be some frost on your artificial grass. This just need to be left to melt away naturally, because if you attempt to clear any frost with your shovel, then this can damage the fibres of your grass.
- You also need to make sure the drainage of your artificial grass is adequate. A build-up of leaves and debris can affect the drainage of your lawn, and therefore lead to a small pool of water appearing on the surface.
None of these maintenance tips are particularly time consuming tasks, but just something you should keep an eye out for to make sure your garden is still looking fresh in the colder months.
