The Fun Facts about water drainage in the synthetic and artificial turf world.
GrassTex offers many products that have a drainage feature. Our products that provide drainage are going to be our landscaping, playground, and pet products. Many competitors also offer turf with drainage. However, their turf is woven like a sweater, making the water drain too fast. When water drains too quickly, it can cause damage to the base under the turf. GrassTex has developed a turf with a drainage rate of 30” per hour per square yard. The holes for drainage are every 3”x4”, which helps give a controlled flow.
Our synthetic turf products include an excellent drainage feature for pet areas. It not only drains water it also allows your pet’s urine to drain. Standing water can create mud puddles, yet drainage with artificial turf prevents a muddy playground, lawn, shoes, and paws. Investing in this helps avoid messes in the home on those rainy days as well!
