An artificial lawn represents a significant investment of money regardless of the size or intended use and that investment should be protected!

Artificial grass requires very little maintenance compared to natural grass. However, there are a few basic tasks you should do to keep your artificial grass looking clean and well-maintained:
Remove debris: Regularly remove debris, such as leaves, twigs, and trash, from the grass to keep it looking clean.
Clean spills: If you have spills or stains on your artificial grass, clean them up as soon as possible to prevent them from becoming permanent. Use a mild detergent and a soft-bristled brush to scrub the affected area, then rinse with water.
Fluff the grass: If the grass fibers start to look flattened or matted, at home you can use a broom or plastic rake to gently fluff them up. This will help the grass look full and vibrant.
Check for damage: Inspect your artificial grass regularly for signs of damage, such as tears or loose seams. If you notice any damage, call for repair as soon as possible to prevent it from getting worse.
Overall, artificial grass requires very little maintenance compared to natural grass, making it a low-maintenance and convenient choice for landscaping.
Leaves that are left on artificial grass can cause a number of problems, including:
Clogging: Leaves that are left on the grass can get stuck in the fibers of the artificial grass, clogging them and making it difficult for water to drain properly. This can lead to standing water on the grass, which can damage the grass and create a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other pests.
Staining: Leaves that are left on the grass for an extended period of time can begin to decompose, which can cause staining on the grass. This can be difficult to remove and can make the grass look dirty and unappealing.
Deterioration: If leaves are left on the grass for an extended period of time, they can weigh down the grass fibers, causing them to become flattened and matted. This can make the grass look worn and can reduce its overall lifespan.
It is important to remove leaves from artificial grass on a regular basis to avoid these problems and keep your grass looking clean and well-maintained. Typically once a year is sufficient for most yards.
Leaves do not turn directly into dirt, but rather they break down and decompose over time, becoming a part of the soil. The rate at which this process occurs depends on a number of factors, including the type of leaves, the local climate, and the presence of other organic matter in the soil.
In general, leaves that fall to the ground in temperate regions will begin to decompose within a few weeks to a few months. However, this process can take longer if the leaves are thick or tough, if the weather is particularly dry or cold, or if there are not enough microorganisms present to break down the leaves such as on artificial grass.
