How to make fake weed with grass

Use a garden sprayer to apply apple cider vinegar to control weeds on artificial grass

Outside, weeds will try to grow anywhere. Moss can also collect on surfaces in damp and shady areas. Thank goodness – you only need ONE NATURAL PRODUCT, applied liberally, to handle invasive growth on artificial grass, in mulch, deco-rock, and any other surface!

Grasses, clover, moss and other organic growth, common to your area, can easily be controlled using APPLE CIDER VINEGAR!

Seeds blow in or are dropped by birds or other animals. With a bit of water (from rain or a leak) and little sun these seeds start to grow and you will see seedlings in the spring. Treat the issue right away, for best results.*

Also, because you aren’t watering the lawn, at some point the seedlings will dry up and blow away. What we don’t want is to leave the sprouted weeds and its roots left in the grasses. That organic material will break down and create other issues, for the long term.

Get a garden pump-up pressure sprayer to apply the apple cider vinegar (100% or no more than 50/50 with H2o) directly on the seedlings. Any plant sprouts need to be picked out (roots and all). Then you will want to agitate the blades with a grooming rake and blow it off to remove remaining organics; re-treat the area to control new growth, as needed.

*ALREADY HAVE WEED GROWTH?

Why are you seeing weed, plant or moss growth?

Let’s explore that. Artificial grass, as a rule, does not “support” organic plant life so why are you seeing it on your grass?**

We need answers to some questions that might lead us to why.

Are the weeds in a new garden, under bark or deco rock or dry creek bed, as well as on the grass? Did your installer use weed barrier cloth on the soil layer and under mulch or deco-rock, too? Do you see weed growth on other hard scape such as pavers, stepping stones, driveway or sidewalks? Is there any source of moisture in the area helping keep it damp, helping support germination? Is there construction close by stirring up dirt and seed into the air or a field of weeds that is casting seed your way? Is there a tree branch where birds might be dropping seeds in that area? Did you or neighbors recently mow or weed-wack an area and blow seeds onto the grass surfaces?

** Use of plain, white silica sand, as an infill, can easily support weed and moss growth due to its heavy dust content and tendency to “bridge”, locking grains of sand together to create compacted spots; ideal for a seed to root into. One key reason why we use green, acrylic coated infill material is that it is virtually dustless – our preferred infill material won’t compact like plain silica sand or support weed and moss growth in damp, shady areas.
