o You can clean the grass with a flexible rake or leaf-blower.

o Regular brushing with a soft, nylon-bristle broom will keep grass clean and upright (Avoid steel brushes!).

o Never use solvents! Washing the Synthetic Turf with water (cold or warm) is sufficient, but for harsh chemical spills please refer to the manufacturer.

o To remove environmental spills – dirt, dust, bird dropping, pet stains – and other water-based spills – treat as you would normal grass.

o Leaves and rough dirt: Simply brush, or hose, them away.

o Fine dirt: Water away fine dirt, but be wary of removing too much infill material. On smaller indoor installations please vacuum up fine dirt.

o Solids (e.g. chewing gum, pet faeces): Carefully scoop the solids up off the grass.

o Spilt drinks: Wash away with water.

o Burning materials (e.g. cigarette, braai coals): Remove as soon as possible but there may still be turf discolouration. Burn marks can be professionally repaired, please refer these queries to your installer.

o Flatness: Simply brush the grass fibre upright. A more regular brush ensures fibres may stay upright especially on high traffic areas.

The best advice to follow is to keep your lawn and landscape areas free from organic debris, dust, dirt and trash.  

Organic materials, left to decompose on the surfaces, can cause havoc on a artificial grass or synthetic lawn surface; just like it would on a deck or driveway, creating a breeding ground for bugs and weeds.

Most organic material will rot, creating a mess to clean up later so, using a leaf blower, rake and brush you can keep your lawn are looking fresh and new for a very long time.

Other types of debris that can create challenges are dust, pollens, flowering plants, fruits and nut tree droppings, bird droppings and feeders for squirrels, birds and other wildlife.

Avoid adding to your clean up whenever possible and relocate feeders, fruit and nut trees, heavily flowering bushes and plants that shed heavy quantities of materials.

If this isn’t possible, to get best results, you should groom your synthetic grass lawn and landscape area regularly. Remove the organic materials, by hand, and rinse the artificial turf surfaces to dilute any remaining sugars from fruits and decay.

Never use a power washer – a sprinkler setting is a better way to rinse, allowing the water to saturate the surfaces, and then drain through.

Sometimes heavy rain can wash out or move the infill on your turf. A shag carpet rake or stiff broom can help you move the infill back into place. If this isn’t working, try using a shop vacuum to remove the displaced infill and then sprinkle it lightly back into it’s original area. A wide tooth hairbrush can also be used to work the infill back in between the turf blades.

Weeds can grow on synthetic turf! You may eliminate some, however, no outdoor surface can escape forever from seeds flying in on the wind. Add a bit of water and the seed will germinate! You have several choices to combat weed growth; select a pre and post emergent and spray as recommended by your manufacturer or use a mixture of vinegar and clove oil to the turf right before and during rain season, prior to spring time germination. In some areas, you may need to treat the area year round due to the perpetual potential of seeds germinating at anytime.

We recommend getting a manual pressure spray bottle to apply any liquid materials to the surface.

We discourage the use of bleach and other toxic or harsh products—you may void your warranty or create a toxic environment for your family and pets.

You should always RINSE the lawn and dilute the treatments to help them go through the turf backing and deep into the base and soil materials. This will help spread the treatments throughout the depth and breath of the turf surfaces.

Just like any garden surface, Easi Turf will collect dirt from environmental exposure and from being walked upon.
