How do I make my artificial grass stand upright again?
It is one of the biggest differences between good and lower-quality artificial grass: the difference in resilience. A good quality grass rebounds after being subjected to pressure, for example, if a pool has been placed on it. Grass of lower quality quickly gives in and will remain flat, no matter what you do.
How do you ensure that good artificial grass stands upright again?
Very simple. Once the fibers have laid down due to being under pressure, you just brush the grass for a moment. This can be done with a regular stiff broom. You will see: the fibers had temporarily taken on a subordinate role, but are more than happy to showcase themselves in their full glory again.
What if I had a swimming pool on the grass all summer?
Even then, high-quality artificial grass will recover. However, it is worth noting: the longer the pool has been there, the more challenging it is for the grass to fully return to its original state. Brushing it a second or third time can sometimes help.
Naturally, the size of the pool also plays a role in this. A small inflatable pool will have little impact on good artificial grass. However, if the grass is heavily burdened in the same spot for several years in a row, its resilience will inevitably be affected. It will become increasingly difficult to keep it upright.
Is it wise to place a swimming pool on my artificial grass?
Sure, but consider the following beforehand:
- If you have lower-quality artificial grass, the fibers will stay down even after you have removed the pool.
- If you have high-quality artificial grass, you can brush it to make the grass stand upright again, but … not indefinitely. With intensive use, you will eventually compromise the resilience of even good artificial grass.
