How can I get my artificial grass standing straight again?
The difference in resilience is how you can tell if your artificial grass is of high quality or of lesser quality. Grass of good quality will simply recover after intensive use, for instance when you had a swimming pool on your lawn. Grass of lesser quality, however, usually becomes flat and remains flat; no matter what you try to do about it.
Is it possible to get my artificial grass standing straight again?
Yes, it certainly is. When you have put a heavy load on your lawn for a period of time, the grass fibers will lie flat. You can fix this by simply brushing the grass with a regular broom.
The fibers were only flat for a short period of time, but will rise and show themselves in their full glory. Your artificial lawn will look brand-new again.
What if there was a pool on my artificial lawn throughout the summer?
That should not be a problem for quality grass. However, you should keep in mind that the longer the pool was on your artificial lawn, the more difficult it will be for the grass to recover completely. In these cases, it is recommended to brush the grass a second or even third time.
Of course, the size of the pool matters too. If you only have a small inflatable kids’ pool, your artificial lawn will not be affected that much.
The resilience of your artificial grass can be affected irreversibly when there is a heavy load on it for several years. Getting the fibers standing straight again will become more and more difficult.
Is it a problem to put a pool on my artificial lawn?
Not at all. Just remember:
- The fibers of grass of lesser quality will lie flat and remain flat even when the heavy load has been removed.
- On the other hand, if your grass is of high quality, you can simply brush the fibers to get them standing straight again. Please note that there is a limit to this as well. Even grass of the highest quality will be affected by intensive use.
