Allow Snow to Melt
One of the main tips of looking after artificial grass in winter is to let the snow melt naturally. You can pour warm water on fake grass for faster melting. To melt the snow using salt is not recommended at all.
Shovel With Caution
To remove an excessive amount of snow, use a plastic shovel. Using a metal shovel to get rid of extreme snow is not recommended as it can damage your artificial turf fibres.
