Is Artificial Grass Waterproof?
Is Artificial Grass Waterproof? Yes, artificial grass is waterproof. All materials used in our artificial grass are extremely durable and will not degrade or deteriorate when exposed to water.
Does artificial grass let water through?
Artificial grass doesn’t have to worry about drainage and has its own very effective drainage solution. It can drain water like real grass, allowing water to penetrate through the turf backing and drain through the base to the water table.
The most common type of synthetic turf backing is the “Hole-Punched” backing, in which drainage holes are spaced equally across the turf to ensure rapid drainage. Due to its durability, performance and cost, it has been used for decades and remains one of the most popular types of backing, widely used in gardens, landscapes and patios.
Another type of backing is 100% permeable and is primarily used for pet lawns or areas that require a lot of drainages.
Does rain damage artificial grass?
Artificial grass is usually made of PE or PP material, which is waterproof and can even withstand being submerged for long periods of time without being damaged. Artificial turf manufacturers guarantee the durability of their products and the materials used in the production.
Unaffected by external weather conditions, such as rain or direct sunlight, artificial grass always retains a lush appearance that is aesthetically pleasing in all seasons. Our artificial turf products use the best UV inhibitors and have a lifespan of 8 to 12 years depending on use and maintenance.
What’s more, artificial grass doesn’t require much maintenance at all. It doesn’t leave muddy footprints, doesn’t require the use of herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers, and doesn’t require watering, helping to save water. To prevent bacterial growth, you need to clean and disinfect it regularly.
Is artificial grass affected by extreme rainfall?
When it comes to extreme rainfall, you might be concerned: Will artificial turf infill wash away? Certain types of infill can rise or float during heavy rains, so it’s important to choose the right type of infill for your lawn or playing field.
In climates where heavy snowfall can be anticipated the field should contain a hard paved or extended synthetic turf area that is designed to ensure snow-melt drains back onto the main field, or to suitably designed drains that have suitable silt traps to capture any infill being washed away.
How to deal with the snow and ice of artificial grass?
While natural turf yellows in winter, artificial turf can withstand cold weather and survive the winter unscathed. How to maintain artificial grass in the best condition for use on snowy days?
Generally speaking, the way to deal with snow and ice is to let them melt and evaporate on the lawn. However, in some cases, you may want to remove snow or ice from your artificial turf.
If the snow is very light, you can simply brush or sweep it away. If the snow is heavy, you can choose to shovel the snow or use a snow blower, but it’s better to remove only the top layer of snow, leaving about an inch of snow to be removed with a broom.
After the snow has melted or been removed, your grass may be flattened due to the weight of the snow. However, it will naturally bounce back over time. As at any other time of year, you can help lift the piles by crossing the bristles. This extra push will help get your lawn’s appearance back to normal faster.
One thing to note is that although you can use salt to melt snow from your lawn, it is not recommended. Salt can clog the holes in the back of the turf, preventing the grass from being able to drain properly.
