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 home and business owners who yearn for a bit of greenery without spending an exorbitant amount to help natural grass flourish in the hot climate. Let’s take a look at how to care for artificial turf during the summer.
Keep it Cool
One of the most important things we tell customers about keeping a synthetic lawn, putting green, or other landscaped turf 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 synthetic grass to become quite hot.
Not to worry – our products won’t melt because quality synthetic grass is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions – but it could still have an impact on the turf’s longevity and make it difficult to use during the day. Spraying the grass with a water hose or sprinkler can quickly cool (and help clean) the artificial turf. This will help keep the grass as cool as possible even under the hottest hours of the summer days.
Pay Attention to Post Dust Storm Maintenance
Warm weather isn’t the only challenge Arizona summers pose to artificial grass. Dust storms that arrive in the Arizona monsoon can dirty the grass and weigh down its blades, leaving turf 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.
