Although artificial grass does not require as much maintenance as natural grass, it still needs to be cleaned regularly. Even if it is expensive, it can last for up to 30 years, but only if you look after it.

Considering that it needs to be cleaned regularly, it is recommended to do so only with a light-chemical detergent, like dishwashing liquid and water. When washing the grass, it must be rinsed and brushed afterward to ensure that you are getting the most out of it for longer.

Channel Drainage for your Lawn Patch

Since it can be cleaned and rinsed with cold water, it is designed with channel drainage, which includes a slight slope. When artificial turf gets installed, the ground where you plan to install it on must be smoothed out first. This is done to accommodate irrigation through small channels that allow water to be drained from the turf patch at an angle, draining it towards the edge of the grass patch. Flowing towards the edge of the patch, it usually flows into the street or down a drain. That is also why, when it gets installed, the location of the artificial grass patch needs to be considered.

Channel drainage is primarily used for small yards that make use of a slope to drain water. It is recommended to hire an expert to install artificial grass as the drainage of the patch relies on a one-directional slope, which is quite important. Setting up channel drainage can be extremely complicated, and can require you to create a network of gutter-shaped tubing pieces that allows for small groves to be dug into the cover material’s uppermost layer towards the patches’ edges. Even though channels are difficult to install, it can come in handy and allow for extremely efficient drainage.
