In order to maintain the natural look and beauty of your Royal Grass® installation it is recommended that, on a regular basis, you remove organic debris such as leaves and seeds form your Royal Grass® lawn. When leaves aren’t removed, they will compost and lead to growth of moss and weeds. Using a weed killer is possible but it’s better to prevent it. Also don’t enter the lawn if it is full of leaves, remove the leaves first.
In order to keep the grass in the best possible condition, it is recommended to regularly brush the grass in accordance with the amount of ‘traffic’ is gets. Brushing the grass will keep the fibers upright for a longer time, enhancing the natural look of your lawn.
A normal leaf blower can be used to clean your Royal Grass® surface from fallen leaves and other debris. The frequency of performing proactive maintenance to your Royal Grass® lawn depends on your surrounding environment and usage of your lawn.
In cases where you may have placed a heavy items on the Royal Grass® surface, like an inflatable swimming pool or flower pot, the grass fibers will flatten. When the heavy item is removed, simply take a broom with first bristles and brush the fibers back up again to make your lawn return to its original beauty. Over time, it is possible that the imprint stays visible. Remember to always brush against the natural pile direction of your Royal Grass® lawn.
Winter conditions are not a problem for Royal Grass®, it will not damage due to frost or break at entry. However, if snow is stamped into the grass and an icy layer has been formed, this may not be removed manually in order to prevent the fibers from damaging. This must melt naturally.
FIRE AND HOT ITEMS
At all times prevent fire and hot items like BBQ ashes and cigarettes from getting into direct contact with your Royal Grass® lawn as this will potentially cause melting of the grass. Repairing is possible but it will be slightly visible.
Weed is easy to remove by picking, brushing or rake the grass. Ensure that weed is removed before it has the chance to take root, especially at the edges. It is advisable to take care of good cleaning of the lawn.
A number of environmentally-friendly products can be purchased at DIY centres and garden centres to kill algae, moss and weeds. Provided the instructions are observed, these products will not cause damage to Royal Grass® artificial grass.
