If you are thinking about installing artificial grass in your garden or on your terrace, surely one of the main questions you have to keep in mind has to do with the drainage and absorption capacity of this type of surface. Well, it is important that the drainage system is adapted to artificial grass. Otherwise, the rain can significantly accelerate your lawn’s deterioration.
What is the impact of insufficient drainage on your artificial grass?
The first problem that arises if the drainage system is not adequate, is that the surface is flooded, causing it to become unstable. Due to this, your artificial grass can look uneven and deformed and eventually lose its uniformity. Thus, it ends up losing its practical as well as aesthetic function. You will need to replace your artificial grass and bear the cost of a new artificial lawn and installation.
But rest assured, all Turfgrass products have an excellent drainage capacity of 60 liters per minute per m², so using our products you will not encounter these problems.
Next to the product, the preparation of the land is also very important. Our network of Turfgrass installers is perfectly prepared and trained to ensure a worry-free installation.
Anyway, let’s see what a good drainage system should look like:
- Hard surfaces: artificial grass offers great versatility and can be installed on all types of surfaces, even of great hardness, such as concrete or terrazzo. In this cases, one of the most important points is the existence of slopes and deviations towards the drains. If they do not exist as such in the terrace or garden, it is the responsibility of the installer to foresee it.
- Organic surfaces: if the artificial grass is going to be placed on earth or gravel, the first and most important thing is to check the composition of the earth. In case it is clayey, it is necessary to implement a drainage system of greater thickness. If it is an area that is not prone to flooding, the drainage system can be finer.
It is very important to choose the appropriate artificial grass, which has sufficient drainage capacity, as well as the professional services of a trustworthy and quality company like Turfgrass, which guarantees the implementation of a good drainage system for artificial grass. This is the best way to make sure you will be able to enjoy your artificial lawn for a long time without problems.
