Q: What does “maintenance free” really mean?
A: Natural grass requires lots of “TLC” such as regular watering, mowing, fertilizing and edging. Synthetic grass lawns from Frass, requires none of these things. Every so often debris that might decay such as leaves must be removed from your fake grass and once in a blue moon the artificial turf fibers should be swept up to fluff the fibers in high traffic areas.
