6. SEASONAL MAINTENANCE TIPS
Adjust your care routine depending on changing weather conditions throughout the seasons. Prepare for torrential rain or snow by ensuring proper drainage to prevent matting. Protect the turf during harsh temperatures, taking measures to maintain its longevity. Look at our wintertime guide for more suggestions. Annual professional maintenance is also advised.
7. ENSURING SAFETY FOR PETS
Regularly check for sharp items or debris that can injure your pets during playtime. Confirm the absence of toxic chemicals in fertilizers or pesticides that could be used in the surrounding area. High-quality turf ensures a safe space for your pets to enjoy life, but it’s still good to ensure nothing harmful ends up in your yard.
