Artificial grass in cold climates may become slippery because of snow and ice, and it can cause the fibres to freeze but it doesn’t have anything to do with damaging your fake turf. Wonder how?
Artificial Grass in Cold Climates
The first thing to be certain of is that synthetic turf is made from such material that it can withstand extreme variations, including heat waves or cold weather. It requires less maintenance as compared to real lawn which makes it green and fresh all year round. So fake turf is more resilient as compared to real lawns.
The second thing is that the fake turf is not going to freeze to a point where its fibres or blades become brittle and break. But it is important to note that when the grass fibres become stiff due to the snow/ice, it is not safe to walk on these blades because you may hurt yourself. A thin layer of snow or ice is fine to walk on fake turf but be careful if it is thick as snow can be compacted into ice and can potentially break your grass fibres.
For artificial grass in cold climates, we always recommend you allow the ice or snow to melt and drain away before you walk. Also, we don’t recommend you to use salt to melt snow, because it can clog the drainage system of your turf.
