Maintenance for Your Backyard Putting Green

Posted on: May 20, 2016

Your backyard putting green in Potomac is a precious thing. A source of practice, recreation, and even a fixture to take pride in. And though the poly turf installed by Capitol Turf Pros is of the highest quality, and exceptionally durable, it’s not above needing a little attention every now and again. Just like anything else you own, maintenance in Maryland is integral to a long, healthy lifespan for your artificial turf. But where to begin? Don’t worry, our experts have you covered!

At Capitol Turf Pros, we know turf in and out. We’ve been offering excellent installation and products for years, and we want to ensure you get the most out of your gorgeous turf for years to come!

Artificial Turf Maintenance: The Basics

  • A sturdy sweep. It’s natural for dust and debris to collect on your turf over time. A strong, sturdy and heavy-bristle broom might do the job here, but we would recommend the use of a rotary brush to really ensure you clear debris. No matter your choice, avoid metal bristles!
  • Rinse off. To work out any lingering materials and cleanse your turf of animal leavings or other byproducts, gently rinse your turf with water. A standard garden hose works fine, or if rain is in the forecast, let nature take on the job for you!
  • Groom with a broom. Notice some of your turf looking a little droopy after the cleaning you performed? A soft brush broom run across the putting green like a comb can rectify this.
  • Never use chemicals. Bleach or heavy-duty cleaning products can stain and strain your turf, leaving the blades brittle and ugly. Stick to natural ingredients if you must use cleaning solutions, but regular use of water should do just fine.
  • Keep professionals on retainer. There are lots of artificial turf cleaning services out there, and the majority of them do a darn good job. Most of your maintenance can be done solo, but it’s not a bad idea to have the pros in every year, or even every few months. No one knows turf like a pro!
