Artificial Turf Maintenance Explained by Your Denver Landscaping Company


Many homeowners want the luscious look of green grass in their lawns, but don’t have the time to commit to keeping it healthy. If you’re one of these homeowners, artificial turf is a great alternative to help you get the look you want. But, how much maintenance does artificial turf require? According to My Landscaper, a Denver landscaping company, here’s how you can take care of artificial turf once it’s been installed:

Keep dirt and debris off of your lawn.
If you don’t take action to remove dirt and debris once it begins to accumulate on your artificial turf, it will start to affect the way your lawn looks. How can you remove dirt? It’s recommended that you use a flexible lawn rake that will remove debris and also keep each blade of artificial grass standing upright. However, you can also use a leaf blower if you keep it on the lowest settings so it doesn’t damage the artificial turf.

Rinse it with water.
Even if you do your best to remove dirt and debris as soon as you see it begin to build up, it’s possible that you will miss a spot and be left with a small stain on your new artificial turf. Don’t panic—just grab a hose. Artificial turf should be rinsed down once in awhile to remove the dirt and debris that you missed when raking your lawn. If there’s a spot that won’t come out with just water, talk to your landscaping professional and see if you can use detergent to remove the stain.

Get rid of bad smells.
Are there dogs in your neighborhood that are urinating in your grass? This won’t affect the way your lawn looks, but it could lead to an unpleasant smell over time. If this happens to you, talk to your landscaping professional about how you can get rid of the smell. They should be able to recommend a specific cleaner that is safe for artificial turf and designed to remove odors.

Brush the blades.
Grass blades are supposed to stand up straight, but if you or your family members walk over a certain patch of your artificial turf repeatedly, it’s possible the blades could start to bend. Bent grass blades look unnatural and unappealing, so keep a stiff brush handy to remedy this problem as soon as you spot it. Don’t use a brush with metal bristles because this will most likely damage your grass. Instead, choose a brush with synthetic bristles and apply a bit of force when brushing the blades to push them back into place. This may sound tedious, but you don’t have to do this to your whole lawn. Simply look for places that seem a bit worn down from foot traffic and target these areas.

Benefits of Creating a Synthetic Turf Landscape


August 3, 2016

No sooner are you done mowing your lawn, and it appears that it needs to be trimmed again. Does that sound right? Are you thinking about artificial products and the level of maintenance that they can offer to your lawn? Yes, there are always other green substitutes like synthetic turf. Are these worth their cost? Let’s take a closer look.

Artificial Turf
What is artificial turf? This kind of landscape is comprised of synthetic fibers made by man. It does have a close resemblance to natural grass, but there are certain limitations. However, many homeowners with a limited budget don’t mind using synthetic turf. There are certain steps that go into making artificial grass.

The Production Process
The process of producing this kind of grass begins with yarn, which is made from polymers, colored with additives to resemble the real grass. The yarn is sometimes wrapped or twisted, after which it is sewn to a fabric backing. Loops are created and then cut to look a lot like grass blades. The fibers are held together with liquid latex and after it gets hard, it is then placed on the fabric backing. The fabric is punched with holes for easy water drainage.

The Comparison
In comparison to natural grass, artificial turf is synthetic, but looks so real, it is difficult to tell that it is not natural grass. This is especially true when the artificial turf is of high quality. It gives a different feel when you touch it with your hand. This is because of the plastic material used in its production. You will find that it makes a slight rustling sound when touched. It has a higher level of heat absorption and retention compared to natural grass. Due to the higher temperatures, it can become quite uncomfortably warm if touched with the bare skin.

The Benefits
There are several benefits to using artificial turf grass. It really makes your life simpler and easier. This is especially true if you don’t want to be bothered about regularly maintaining a lawn. It is certainly less expensive than maintaining natural grass.

Easy Maintenance
You no longer have to mow, trim, fertilize, or water your grass. In addition, insects are not attracted to synthetic turf as they are to natural grass. Artificial turf is also pet-friendly. Pet waste will no longer damage or discolor your lawn. None of your family members will bring mud or dirt inside the house as they would with natural grass. More importantly, your grass will be green throughout the year. You will save on water and electricity. There will be no emissions from gas operated tools like a lawn mower. In other words, the synthetic turf option is environmentally friendly.

Make sure that if you do choose artificial turf, you select superior grass density for higher quality. If you have children in your home, you may need stronger turf. It is best to consult an expert in synthetic turf.  Rolls of artificial grass can be delivered to your home, but you need a landscaper to lay it out in your yard for you. If you are ready to get that artificial turf professionally installed, it is best to speak to a professional company like MyLandscaper. Call 720-882-5772 for an estimate.

Caring for Your Artificial Turf in the Winter

Artifical Turf, Winter Lawn Care, Denver Landscape Company

December 11, 2015

One of the best things about having artificial turf in a climate like Denver’s is that it requires less maintenance than a natural lawn: no fertilizing, mowing, aerating, or perhaps most importantly in Colorado, watering. However, even though artificial turf is far less maintenance than a traditional lawn, it is not entirely maintenance-free. As the seasons change, different methods of care are required to keep your artificial turf in its best condition. For example, during winter months, you may be tempted to clear snow and ice from your turf just as you would from a sidewalk or driveway but this is not as necessary as you may think! We’ve gathered a list of the top four tips to care for your turf this time of year.
  • Rake leaves and rinse as you would with regular turf – There are still a surprising number of leaves around even in winter months, and it is important to rake up leaves from your turf as you would any other time of the year. You can safely rid your turf of leaves and debris every couple of weeks using a flexible lawn rake or a broom or brush with stiff bristles. And on warmer days, feel free to rinse down your turf to get rid of dust and dirt just as you would in the summer.
  • Let snow and ice melt – After a snow storm or an accumulation of ice on your turf, it’s best to let it melt and drain naturally. The backing on your artificial turf is perforated, so it can drain in a similar way to a natural lawn. While snow doesn’t have a big negative impact on your turf, you need to be cautious when the artificial turf fibers freeze – during this time walking on your frozen turf or overzealously trying to remove snow or ice can actually damage the fibers.
  • Remove snow with the proper tools – If you feel you must remove snow or ice from your turf, know that it matters what tools you use. For a light dusting of snow, you can simply brush or sweep it away. For a few inches or several feet of snow, use a plastic shovel—not metal—to clear the top layers of snow, leaving about an inch at the bottom which you can let melt on its own or sweep away. You can also use salt to melt ice, but try to do this only occasionally as the chemicals can degrade the turf fibers over time.
  • Keep an eye on sun magnification – We love our 300 days of sunshine here in Colorado and we know that intense sunlight is possible any time of the year in Denver, including throughout the winter. Even the hottest sunlight doesn’t actually affect your turf, but sun magnification caused by window glare can causes problems. Sun magnification is usually caused by energy-efficient windows that are made with low emissivity glass (or low-E glass), which reflect the sun and create a focused, magnifying effect, enough that it can burn or damage artificial turf. If you suspect your turf might be affected, consider installing awnings, shutters, screens, or shades on your windows to cut down on the glare, or plant trees or bushes to protect areas of glare from a neighbor’s windows.
Regular maintenance during the “indoor” months will keep your turf in great condition when spring and summer roll around again!

Artificial Turf: Landscaping Services Denver Residents Can Rely On


By Bryn Abshire - July 13, 2015

Many people prefer the look and feel of “real” grass and each property owner must weigh the pros and cons of their choice of turf. Artificial turf or grass consists of filaments threaded into a backing that lets water through. Under the turf is a drainage layer which is usually compacted gravel and is then it is filled with a recycled material to weigh it down. If you want your yard looking its absolute best with minimal maintenance, artificial turf may be a great choice for your Denver yard. Here are a couple benefits of installing artificial grass:
  1. Environmental Impact: Did you know that when you mow your lawn with a gas powered mower, it puts 11 times more pollution in the air per hour than a car?
  2. In a dry climate like Colorado, it’s important to keep water usage to a minimum. With artificial turf, you save money on water while benefiting the environment.
  3. Low maintenance – A traditional lawn is a lot of work. With all the mowing, weeding, fertilizing and watering, you can spend more time maintaining a lawn than enjoying it.
Artificial turf can be placed basically anywhere – on roofs, dog runs, and even decorative borders between patio pavers. It’s also safe for pets and kids!

My Landscaper LLC carries a large selection of authentic-looking turf that will save you time and money. If you want the look of a freshly cut, well maintained lawn without the maintenance, call us today for a free estimate.
