For years, synthetic turf has been replacing athletic fields with real grass for outdoor sports like lacrosse or football. Now, sports that take place indoors are starting to install synthetic turf to protect players from injury. Indoor synthetic turfs are being used for athletic training, soccer, batting cages and more.
Unlike synthetic turf used for outdoor residential or commercial projects, indoor turf doesn’t need to be drained. Because of the extra cushion, synthetic turf is an extra precaution in preventing injuries to players.

One of the main benefits of an artificial grass lawn is that the maintenance requirements are much lower than that of a natural lawn. While this is true, artificial grass lawns still require routine maintenance and cleaning. Below, you’ll find a guide for weekly and monthly maintenance requirements and removing any pet odors or waste.
- For weekly artificial grass maintenance, we recommend removing any rocks, twigs or other items and then rinsing off the area. By rinsing the area, you’ll remove any dust or twigs you missed within the artificial grass.
- Depending on the foot traffic, Turf Prep recommends thoroughly cleaning the lawn every month. As you clean your lawn, you’ll want to use a plastic, flexible rake and a synthetic broom so you don’t damage the surface.
- Artificial grass can stand up to the running and playing of your pet exceptionally well. Since dog paws won’t damage the grass blades, there are no negative effects of your pet running around on it. If you find that the blades have gone down a bit, you can fix this by moving the grass back with a stiff brush. When it comes to cleaning up your pet’s waste, it’s not that much different than if you were to remove it from a traditional lawn.
- Much like with a traditional lawn, cleaning up animal waste is the same for an artificial lawn. You’re still able to remove any waste with a pooper scooper or trash bag. Once you’ve removed the waste, use a disinfectant spray or rinse off the area with your hose.
