Maintaining Your Child’s Artificial Turf Backyard Playground

A benefit of synthetic grass for families with children is its reliability and decreased need of upkeep. This means less time spent on maintenance and more time for your children spent on playing. While synthetic turf requires less maintenance than a natural grass backyard, a little work is still needed. Here’s how to maintain your child’s artificial turf backyard playground so that their recreation time is uninterrupted. 

Removing Debris 

Clean and clear out any fallen branches, leaves, and other any other noticeable debris. You can accomplish this by using different tools like a rake or a leaf blower. Doing this will give your turf a clean look and will also keep your child out of harm’s way from accidentally stumbling on something. 

Occasionally Rinsing Your Artificial Turf

Lightly rinse your synthetic grass with a hose to rid it of dirt, dust, and pollen. This can be done periodically from time to time to maintain your turf’s cleanliness. 

Cleanup After Your Pets

For owners of pets, you’ll want to remove any of their waste as soon as you spot it. The process is simple and convenient and can be done with plastic bags or a scooper. After disposing of the waste, give the area a rinse down with your hose to eliminate any possible odors.

Cleaning Stains

With the amount of time your children will spend playing around on your artificial grass, there’s bound to be various spills and stains. Luckily, the cleaning process for your turf is easy. Vinegar or mild soap can get the job done for minor stains.

Weed Removal

You may on occasion encounter weed growth in the cracks or edges of your synthetic turf. Either manually remove it yourself or call a company to help you do so. 

Artificial turf can make for a stunning sight and the ideal playground for your children. If you want to take your backyard to the next level, partner with Artificial Turf by Fenix to make it happen.

Decorating Your Synthetic Turf for the Holidays

The holiday season is a time of many things. In particular, it’s a time for beautiful and intricate yard decoration designs. It’s here where creative and innovative minds can really flourish. If you’re a homeowner with synthetic turf, the time to start planning out and implementing your design is now. If you’re stumped on what to do for these holidays, here are some creative ways to decorate your synthetic turf.

A Heads-Up Regarding Holes

Although synthetic grass is versatile and will allow you to implement diverse satisfying designs, there are decorations that you will want to avoid. It is recommended that you do not use any decorations that have poles, pins, or stakes. This is because synthetic turf isn’t favorable or friendly to any decorations that will create holes. If your decoration has poles, pins, or stakes and you still want to implement them, place them elsewhere.

Using the Existing Environment

One convenient idea for decorating your artificial turf is using the existing structures as the centerpieces for your design. This design can be built around your plants or hardscaping. It will still allow you to flex your creative muscles while not requiring much change to your yard.

Colorful Outdoor Lights

You can’t go wrong using outdoor lights. You can strew lights all around your yard and home to make for a bright and noticeable sight particularly at night. There are also now many different battery-operated or solar options that will allow you to avoid using lights that require inconvenient and clunky extension cords.

Going All In On Christmas

If you’re looking to implement a Christmas theme for your yard, one possible design is using a large tree decoration and surrounding it with painted or wrapped boxes to represent presents. This design will require a bit of room so if space is a bit confined, you may want to look elsewhere. A more simple Christmas design you can do is decorating your yard with candy canes. 

Take Advantage of Cheap Finds

If you’re on a budget for this holiday season, there are plenty of great finds at thrift shops or flea markets that can be used for your yard. Things like wagons or sleds can make your artificial grass feel festive.

Bring Your Indoor Charm Outside

If you have an outdoor fireplace, this a chance to decorate it as if you would an indoor one. You can decorate your mantel and create that feeling of snugness and comfort that an indoor fireplace provides. 

Even beyond the holiday season, artificial grass can make for a great look in your yard all year long. Not only can it provide a beautiful sight, it is also convenient to maintain with minimal care required.
