Winter weather doesn’t exactly make for the most enjoyable outdoor living when it comes to our own backyards. Fortunately, Bella Turf products can withstand even the harshest Canadian winters, and if maintained properly, can even be enjoyed throughout the winter months. As the leaves fall on your lawn in the fall, be sure to give it a quick clean up and remove any debris from settling into your fibers. If the weather forecast is calling for snow, make sure your entire artificial grass surface is cleaned off. That is only if you plan on creating a useful winter wonderland once the snow falls. If not, let it snow. It will do no harm to your yard.If you DO want to remove snow from your artificial grass, keep a few things in mind to prevent any damage to your fibers:
- Clear the snow when it is fresh and soft. Waiting too long will allow moisture to settle into your fibers, causing the snow to really attach itself in subzero temperatures.
- Use a plastic snow shovel, and don’t attempt to clear snow if it is frozen to your artificial grass.
- Avoid using salts or ice melter on your artificial grass.
Get out there and enjoy the winter months on your Bella Turf lawn.
