‘Cause baby, you’re a firework! Come on, show ‘em what your landscape is worth! The Fourth of July is inching closer and closer as we speak. If you listen closely, you can hear the fireworks going off, laughter from friends and family, and wow, now I can even smell the hamburgers and hot dogs off the grill! Yet, what comes with good times and good vibes is a fantastic yard space to entertain! Synthetic turf has been a hot commodity in the outdoor space, so if you have some yourself, let's get it prepped and keep you protected for this Fourth of July!


  1. Communicate Safety GuidelinesWe all want to have fun, but we also want to make sure everyone is safe. It is important to communicate clear safety guidelines to everyone in attendance. 

  2. Set Up a Safety Zone and Clear the AreaCreating a designated safety zone will be very beneficial once the fireworks ignite. Be sure to clear any debris from the area and be safe from any trees, structures, or flammable objects.

  3. Water the TurfBefore firework festivities, water your artificial grass to increase its moisture content. This will make the synthetic grass less susceptible to catching on fire from stray sparks.

  4. Have Fire Safety EquipmentIt’s always nice to be prepared just in case a fire does break out. Consider a protective covering to lay over the artificial turf for extra precaution and a fire extinguisher or gardening hose.

  5. Post Event CleanupOnce the firework show ends, check the fake grass for any firework casings and other debris. To take extra precautions, water the turf to minimize the risk of fire further.


These five steps sound easy peasy lemon squeezy, right? Preparing your synthetic turf for the Fourth of July is not just about creating a visually appealing display but also about creating a safe environment for everyone. If you consider these steps while planning your Fourth of July extravaganza, you should be in tip-top shape!
