Maintenance is lower but there still is some. Mostly leaves and other natural debris tend to build up. You can a use a plastic leaf rake and a blower to clean it most of the time. Some clients choose to buy power brooms to really get in deep. There are some machines that can broom and collect debris as well. They used to only be large machines used for turf fields. They’ve now made smaller versions.

We’d also recommend spraying your turf with an enzyme cleaner at least 1 time per year. It disinfects the turf and then goes into the gravel base system and kills stuff there as well. We use ProVet Logic (can buy easily online) and there’s several others out there as well. But get the enzyme cleaners so the base system is cleaned as well.

It is preferred to always lay the turf with the fibers facing the normal/most viewed direction. Usually towards the house so you have the best view. Once the product is infilled, sand applied to the top of the turf, and broomed in then that helps reduce the significant change you’re observing in the samples as the sand gives the turf structure.
No. That’s honestly the best part of having turf, in my opinion. You can splash and play to your hearts content and leave things out on the yard for weeks and months without having discoloration. And the kids and pets stay clean and won’t track dirt and grass clippings into the house.
You can shovel or power broom off the turf. Just be careful of edges with power equipment. Or just let it sit and melt in the spring. Then in the spring do a spring cleaning with the plastic rake or power equipment mentioned above.
