What is Drainage and
How Does it Work?
A very common topic of concern our installers receive from their customers is drainage. Many homeowners worry about pet urine or potential flooding from heavy rain.
Where does it go? How does it work? You don’t have to worry – our artificial grass is engineered for superior drainage.
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 into the water table. 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. Believe it or not, this is actually better than a natural lawn!
With the exception of most synthetic putting greens, nearly all landscape turf is perforated and allows for easy, worry-free drainage. A good drainage system can not only help with clean up, but it will also help prevent spores and bacteria from building up within the synthetic grass.
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 harnesses the technology to keep your landscape hassle free with great drainage capability.
