The Benefits of Artificial Turf
Many thousands of Melbourne homes, businesses, and recreational spaces use regular or sports artificial grass. This resulted in beautiful landscapes that required minimal maintenance.

If you think about switching to artificial turf, here are some things you need to remember when it needs replacing.
- Signs of Damage
Though artificial turf lasts long and is durable, they’re not immune to damage, especially when exposed to man-made events and accidents. Damage due to accidents like outdoor grill mess or heat can significantly damage the grass. Putting heavy objects on it for a long time can damage it, too.
- Stains and Odours
If you have house pets; they may think of it as natural grass and lay their wastes on it. In that case, regular cleaning is needed for your synthetic turf. Failing to clean them regularly will attract microbes that create mould growth and foul odours that are hard to remove.
- Faded Turf Colours
Synthetic turfs are made in various shades to enhance their natural grass-like features. And just like other products that are dyed, these turfs’ exposure to changing weather leads to fading colours over time. However, one needs not worry because this may happen after many years.
