Artificial Turf and Snow
People are always worried that the cold weather conditions will damage their artificial turf. However, unlike the maintenance required on natural grass during extreme weather conditions, artificial turf tends to require minimum care
Powder Snow Conditions
You can gently remove light powder snow with a plastic snow shovel; if possible, it is best to allow it to melt naturally. Keep in mind that the weight of the snow can sometimes flatten the blades
Paired with the cold, wet conditions, this can create a slippery surface for yourself and your pets. Therefore, use caution.
Compact Snow Conditions
When removing compacted snow from your artificial turf, you can use your hands or a plastic snow shovel to remove the snow section by section gently.
Do not use a metal snow shovel, as this will damage your artificial turf.
Salt and Artificial Turf
We do not recommend salting your artificial turf, as the salt can seep deep into the base layer and clog up the drainage holes of your turf. Salt can also reduce the lifespan of your artificial turf by breaking down the composite materials at a faster than average rate. If you have chosen to install premium-grade artificial grass, the snow and frost will not affect the color of the blades.
Artificial Turf Brush-Up
After all the snow has receded, the artificial turf will need to be brushed up with either a power-broom or turf rake, as the snow may have compacted the artificial turf. This is also an excellent opportunity to add additional infill sand onto the surface of the synthetic turf to support vertical standup.
