Which electric brush should I use to maintain my artificial lawn ?
Brushing your artificial grass to restore its full volume is important. Over time, and depending on the frequency of brushing, your artificial grass may tend to flatten out. How do you find the ideal brush for your artificial grass ? Is there a specific brushing method ? Let's take a look at some of the most frequently asked questions.
What is the resilience of artificial grass ?
The quality of an artificial grass lawn is measured according to several criteria, including resilience. Resilience is the ability of your lawn's blades to withstand trampling over time. In general, it means a higher frequency of brushing, depending on the length of the strands. At Exelgreen, resilience is one of our manufacturing criteria, so we make a point of providing you with dense lawns for optimum natural effect.
Our tip : For resilient synthetic grass, also check the thickness of the strands. Thinner strands also have a tendency to flatten. For the right strand height for every project, we recommend heights of between 30 and 40 mm. For incomparable comfort underfoot, opt for our 50 mm grass models !
Why do I need to brush my artificial grass ?
Brushing your artificial grass will restore its original volume and appearance, and clean it gently. The shorter the blades of your artificial grass, the less maintenance you'll need. Use an electric brush or a stiff-bristled broom.
