If you’re one of the lucky ones with a backyard in the Dallas Fort Worth area, chances are you’re spending more time than ever out there. (We are so jealous.) But if your backyard happens to be covered in artificial turf, you might be wondering how to keep it from becoming too hot in the summer months. Never fear! We at Artificial Turf & Design are here to help. Here are a few tips on how to keep your fake grass from getting too hot.
Install a sprinkler system
This may seem like an obvious solution, but it’s one that many people overlook. If you have a sprinkler system installed, you can simply turn it on for a few minutes each day to help keep your artificial turf cool. Just be sure not to overdo it, or you may end up with waterlogged turf!
Rinse it off regularly: Just like your own hair, artificial grass can get sweaty and matted down in the summer heat. Give it a good rinse with the hose every few days to keep it looking fresh.
Install awnings or shade cloths
If you don’t have any trees in your backyard, consider installing an awning or some shade cloth over your artificial turf. This will help to keep the direct sunlight off it and therefore prevent it from getting too hot. Just make sure that whatever you use is firmly anchored so that it doesn’t blow away in the wind!
