Maintaining a lush green lawn might seem like a lofty goal when you have the hot Arizona sun to contend with, but that doesn’t mean it’s an impossible one. In fact, you can cultivate a beautiful yard with relatively little work on your part.
Synthetic grass in Arizona is a great option for the homeowner or business owner who yearns for a bit of greenery without spending an exorbitant amount to help natural grass flourish in our hot climate. Let’s take a look at how to care for artificial turf during these late summer months in Arizona. Yes, it may be edging toward fall elsewhere, but in Phoenix, we still have a few more weeks of summer weather remaining.
Keep it Cool
One of the most important things that will keep a synthetic lawn in good shape is to pay attention to the temperatures. It’s not uncommon for Arizona summer days to reach temperatures of 105 or higher, and that kind of heat can cause artificial turf to become quite hot. No, it’s not going to melt because quality synthetic grass is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions – but the Arizona heat could have an impact upon a lawn’s longevity and make it difficult to use during the day. A sprinkler system is a great option to keep the grass as cool as possible even under the noonday sun.
Pay Attention to Post Dust Storm Maintenance
Warm weather isn’t the only challenge Arizona summers pose to artificial grass. Dust storms during our annual monsoon can dirty the grass and weigh down its blades, leaving your lawn looking a bit less than ideal. Luckily, a simple spray cleaner and a hose can fix these issues quickly and leave your synthetic grass in great shape. This is also a good way to freshen everything up after monsoon rains.
