How To Remove Moss from Synthetic Turf?
Moss and mould aren’t necessarily the seasons should-have plants, but the shift in weather conditions creates the ideal environment for these landscape demons to flourish. Dampness is hidden beneath the layers as the lovely trees lose their leaves. Combine this with the ideal amount of shade for mould and moss to flourish, and we’ve got ourselves a problem.
It can also grow just about anywhere, as well as on artificial turf. Yes, though it is uncommon, artificial grass may harbor moss and mould. If not handled, the floating spores stick to the grass strands and spread.
In some conditions, artificial grass can encourage the production of mould and moss, but it can be handled with a few simple steps:
- Rinse thoroughly
- Brush with Artificial Grass Cleaner
- Brush it down
- Rise it
This not only addresses the issue, but it may also help to avoid its recurrence.
Don’t worry – if you see any small black splotches or a furry green layer creeping over your artificial grass, treating it right away will stop it in its tracks and keep it from returning.
Prevention is the approach to moss control.
The adage “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure refers to many aspects, including artificial turf upkeep. You can avoid moss accumulation on artificial turf by trimming overhanging nearby trees that obstruct sunlight and periodically clearing debris and plant waste from the artificial turf’s surface.
Furthermore, you can avoid moss accumulation by using items that you most likely already have on hand. Diluted bleach and vinegar clean and avoid the growth of moss spores while not discolouring the grass leaves.
To Remove Mould or Moss
First, if there are any apparent weed or surface moss, gently pick it out of the field. This will aid in the preceding treatment procedure:
1. Rinse off
Before curing the field, power wash your artificial turf to remove any excess mould or moss. If you’re not using a power washer, a pressured hose will suffice. If any persistent weeds survive, tease them out with the back of a rake (teeth pointing away from the grass) and remove them.
2. Use Treatment

The solution has been diluted and is ready for use at your leisure. The convenient spray bottle makes application a breeze – all you have to do is spread uniformly around the affected region.
3. Clean Up
Brush away any lingering moss and mould on fake grass with a soft-bristled brush. Work the cleaning fluid between all the artificial grass blades to ensure that all of the gras is handled.
4. Rinse it all away
Rinse off any excess with a hose and set aside to dry. In no time, your fake grass will look as beautiful as normal.
