How to Love Your Artificial Lawn this Winter

Post date: January 17, 2021

With the days getting shorter and nights colder, you may be wondering how to inject some love into your synthetic lawn this winter, and here at Artificial Grass Derbyshire, we have all the tips you need.

Thanks to the synthetic fibres and clever composition, there’s no need to overly worry about your artificial grass tackling these winter months, but it does still require some care and attention to keep it looking fresh ready for Spring.

Drainage is key

With Winter, comes rain, and though rain may be dreaded when it comes to real grass, creating mud and causing damage, artificial grass is ready to handle whatever torrential downpours are thrown its way. As long as your artificial lawn has been correctly installed and is draining efficiently, you have nothing to worry about when it comes to the wet British weather.

Tackling snow and ice

Snow and ice can make artificial grass unpleasant for both pets and people to walk on, creating a slippery surface. If you have areas of compact snow, careful removal by hand is essential as damage can be caused to the frozen fibres when walked on. However, if the snow is powdery and soft, this may be left to naturally melt and won’t cause any harm to your artificial grass.

How to remove sludge

The initial falling of snow can be a beautiful sight, with a fresh white layer creating picturesque scenery wherever you look outdoors, but the aftermath is not so pretty. When snow turns to sludge, you may be tempted to remove it manually, if so you must ensure you use a plastic shovel to avoid damage to any frozen fibres in your artificial grass; using softer tools protects your artificial grass and prevents any damage to the backing.

These images were kindly supplied by a customer of ours who we supplied with 100 sqm of Prestige 37mm artificial grass. The majority of our projects are fully installed by Artificial Grass Derbyshire but in this case the customer was very confident in their own abilities and have indeed laid a very lovely new artificial lawn.

These guys have done a fantastic job of our artificial lawn. We did consider doing it ourselves as it’s a small area but so glad we went with them. They were very reasonably priced and the finish is to the highest of standards. They even looked at the overall finish of the garden project and put more of the gravel core down to higher the lawn so the overall finished effect is perfect. Not even worth attempting the job ourselves.We went with the willow lawn and it’s very soft and natural looking. Would highly recommend the business and lawn.

Paul Emery - artificial willow lawn looks brilliant. Fitting of lawn was professional and meticulous. Delivery was received at the time advised and fitting completed within time advised. Maintenance advice for the lawn from Chris was most helpful. A positive experience from initial quote to the end result of a perfect looking lawn. Would definitely use Artificial Grass Derbyshire again.
