How Does Artificial Grass Drain?

Some very common questions we get from our customers are… How does artificial grass drain? Where does it go? How does it work? They are concerned about pet urine or potential flooding from heavy rain. Artificial turf is designed to remain vibrant and green no matter what time of year or what type of weather conditions are present. Part of keeping the lawn green and damage free is making sure there will be no standing water or areas where excessive moisture can remain for long periods of time. Water management is critical, whether turf is being installed on a residential or commercial location.

Drainage is extremely important when it comes to artificial turf. Although standing water will not turn lawns brown or kill large patches of grass, it does provide an excellent breeding environment for mosquitoes and other insects. Even if there is no standing water, excessive moisture can lead to the growth of mold and mildew. Both situations can cause unsightly discolorations that will have a dramatic impact on the visual appeal of the lawn.  

It might be hard to believe, but our artificial grass products drain more water than a natural grass lawn. The drainage systems of synthetic grass are primarily designed to allow water to percolate through the backing of the turf and drain through the base layer. Most artificial grass backing is perforated with holes that measure approximately ½ centimeter in diameter and can drain at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard.

Because the water is leaving just as fast as it’s dropping in, you prevent spore and bacteria growth, keeping your landscape safe for pets and kids. You also avoid muddy holes, puddles, and standing water which attracts a wide variety of bugs to your backyard. When it comes to your pets doing their business, the same benefits of drainage capabilities with rainfall apply as well. Pet urine drains through without leaving dead, brown spots on your perfect lawn.

Whether it’s water or pet urine, the drainage capacity ensures your turf will continue to look great after installation. No need to feel like you can’t have a picnic, run around, or let your dogs loose on it. Synthetic grass has the technology to keep your landscape hassle free with great drainage capability.  

We work hard to give our customers only the best artificial grass products on the market, so you’re never concerned about flooding, bugs, pet urine, mud, or water pollution. Superior drainage will keep your home looking green, beautiful, and efficient all year long. If you’re interested in taking advantage of all these benefits, make sure to give our team a call. We would love to assist you in making the switch.
