Three Easy Turf Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Lawn From Smelling

Odors are the biggest concern pet owners have when it comes to artificial grass. If you’ve ever visited a home where the owners didn’t properly take care of pet waste, you’ll understand why proper artificial grass maintenance is so important

Thankfully, there are a few essential artificial grass cleaning tips that will keep your lawn clean and fresh – no matter how many pets you have. From installation to day-to-day upkeep, we’ve broken down three of the best ways to prevent odors on your artificial turf. 

Make Sure Your Artificial Turf’s Base Allows for Proper Drainage

Drainage is everything when it comes to preventing odors on your artificial grass.  Without proper drainage, liquids like pet waste and rainwater can accumulate on the surface of your synthetic grass, causing mold, mildew and unpleasant odors. 

Installing a permeable sub-base underneath your turf will help liquids to flow freely, keeping your artificial grass cleaner. Sub-bases can be made of everything from limestone to wood chippings and are one of the best ways to prevent odor-causing bacteria from building up and causing your lawn to smell.

Rinse Your Synthetic Grass

Rinsing your lawn down with a hose from time to time will help to keep odors at bay. This is especially important if you have pets that use your yard or if it’s been a while since it last rained.
