What Broom to Use on Artificial Grass?

Are you are wondering what broom to use on artificial grass? If you've read through our list of the best artificial grass brooms and still have questions, hopefully this next bit of information helps. There are a few variables that you need to keep in mind when choosing a broom for synthetic grass which are even more important if you are going to be doing your own artificial grass maintenance every year. 

  • No metal. A quality artificial grass can handle a lot of wear including brushing with stiff plastic bristles. An artificial grass broom should never have metal parts either in the form of tongs or spikes because they could damage the backing of the grass.
  • Grass blade length. Often overlooked, are the varying lengths of grass. While a putting green can be effectively cleaned with a short nylon broom, nylon isn't ideal for cleaning or brooming long artificial grass with blades over 1 1/2 in. Try to find a synthetic grass push broom with bristles or teeth that matches or exceed the length of the grass.
  • Light weight. A lightweight artificial grass broom is perfect for spot cleaning by anyone in the household and it also makes it practical for blooming larger areas without getting fatigued. 
  • Pets or no pets. A yard with pets will inevitably end up with more debris including organics on the grass that can cause problems down the road, namely; odours and bacteria. It's recommended that you use an enzyme cleaner and stiff bristle broom or power broom at least once a year to kill organisms and keep the grass clean.
