You need just a few essential synthetic turf supplies to keep that synthetic turf looking great and smelling good too. Regular maintenance using these supplies keeps your synthetic turf looking vibrant and smelling fresh.

Cleaning Tools

Turf Brush or Turf Rake.  A stiff-bristled brush or rake made for artificial turf maintains the turf’s fresh, new appearance by returning crushed fibers to their upright position and lifting debris that settled at the base of the blades.

Poop Removal Tools. Keep a pooper scooper or gloves and plastic bags on hand to pick up solid waste for disposal elsewhere. Even if you don’t have a pet, don’t be surprised if a visiting opossum, raccoon, squirrel, or fox leaves you a present now and again.

Leaf Blower. Leaves, twigs, and other small debris blow in on the wind. Use a leaf blower to remove this debris without damaging the turf blades. Often, a leaf blower removes debris sufficiently so that the turf doesn’t require brushing or raking.

Garden Hose and Spray Nozzle. This dynamic duo serves as the most often used supply in your arsenal of synthetic turf maintenance supplies. Regular rinsing keeps the turf looking clean and the hose is essential in cleaning up after pet urine and feces as well as spilled beverages and food. If it is gross, grab a garden hose with a good spray nozzle to clean it up.

Cleaning Products

Mild Dish Detergent. Keep a grease-fighting dish detergent like Dawn on hand to help clean up stains. For lightly soiled areas, a teaspoon of dish soap mixed with a pint of water should do the trick. For more heavily soiled areas, use a 1 to 1 solution of soap and water. Wet the area with a soapy solution, let sit a few minutes, lightly brush, then hose down.

You want this on hand to neutralize odors. Check the label to ensure the product is specifically designed for synthetic grass.

Infill Material. You won’t need to add infill every week or even every month. But depending on usage, you will add infill every year or 18 months. Keep zeolite, silica sand, rubber granules, or other infill materials on hand to replenish on an as-needed basis. Infill provides stability to the turf and contributes to longevity.
